The Veils


Mel is happily engaged. She’s also an active Marine Corp translator. While on deployment, Mel’s father passes away, with her mother and sister left to pick up the pieces. When Mel finally returns home, she is haunted by nightmares, terrified not only by what she has seen and lost but by the prospect of going back to her family—particularly as her sister has commandeered wedding planning duties, with her first task being to find Mel’s gown. Veils explores the experiences of a soldier coming to terms with being a part of two very different worlds and a woman who isn’t sure who she is or what she wants.
