Lost Soul - The Ox 1. Lost Soul The Boot

We all like to know the back-story to characters, you know their story before before they appeared in a main story. Confused ? You won't be when you read on, then it will make sense.

The Major features in The Boot and The Boot - Three Years On, here he features in his own story, before The Boot.

There is a tissue needed warning!

The Major has a past as we all do, this is part of it. This is what made The Major into the man he is today. Be aware that The Major was a serving officer, like many serving officers, N.C.O's and enlisted men he has seen some action in the field and it's not always pretty. There will be references to violence and death but no graphic descriptions.

Don't forget the tissues!

A beautifully written sad story, Lost Souls-The OX, tells the backstory of one of the most delightful characters in The Boot series.  Major Ox is a most eccentric and lovable character, and this story gives much history of how he ended up at The Boot, a homeless shelter.  It is a stand alone story, but will be much more enjoyable if you read his HEA in The Boot series.  By itself it is a very moving story that I highly recommend.

This is an interesting look back at how and why the Major became homeless and received his nickname. Both of them, actually. It provides more details about one of the regulars from The Boot.

This is also the first in a series of stories about The Boot regulars.

This could definitely be read independently from The Boot and The Boot - Three Years On. But you’ll want to read the other stories anyway.

Response from the author:

Thank you @droughtquake for the review, I'm 'gobsmacked' lol.

There are more stories planned which will be coming over the next few months.
