Set a midst the civil war-ravaged Balkans of the early 1990s, my novel, Green Card Soldier, is the story of Andro Babich – a naive Bosnian teenage soccer star who escapes to America where he earns refugee status, receives a “green card” and joins the U.S. Army – ultimately earning citizenship and a new life.
The tale is told by Heath Winslow – a cynical, self-deprecating war correspondent. Winslow recounts Andro’s exploits out of the Balkans, to Greece, on to New York and back to Sarajevo. Andro returns as a U.S. AID worker. During a series of escapades, he must face a mound of barriers to reaching his life’s goal. This swarm of forces tests his drive and attempts to skew his moral compass. Andro has an epiphany about his quest. In the end, the Green Card Soldier identifies simple, but universal truisms that he plants as part of his homeland’s rebirth.
