    Summary

    At 18, Eugene’s life changed forever when he decided to follow family tradition and walked into the Marine’s recruiting office downtown instead of applying for colleges like his mother desperately wished. When he returned to Mobile at 22, everyone expected him to follow one of his old ambitions and get a degree or a job but Eugene just couldn’t do that, couldn’t do much of anything, certainly he couldn’t look his mother in the eyes and tell her that the son she knew had died somewhere in the middle of the desert on the other side of the world. By the time he turned 24, Eugene had had enough of everyone’s poking and prodding so he loaded up his car, headed north, and never looked back. With the help of a new city, an old friend, and a struggling flower shop, Eugene was finally able to start making progress with his life but whatever peace Eugene managed to find in the city and in his shop was shattered with the arrival of his new neighbors and at 27 Eugene realized that his life was about to change forever once again. He just hoped that this time it would be for the better.
