War and peace In war-torn Kosovo, a barrage of bullets shatters the life of photojournalist Tony Hampton and destroys everything Valentine Denning has believed about him and their relationship. It's just the beginning in Barbara Taylor Bradford's Where You Belong (Doubleday, $24.95, 0385492758; CD, $29.95, 0553456741). Val and their colleague, Jake Newberg, are wounded in an attack that kills Tony, and the scars of that trauma are emotional as well as physical. Forced to re-evaluate what she expected her life to be, Val returns to her home territory of New York to explore her own strengths and discover more about Jake, who has been by her side all along.
Bradford's story ranges from the broad international issues of war and peace to the internal struggles of hearts at war.
