Both Jason and Kaya come from failed marriages, ones that fell apart for vastly different reasons. Both have suffered professional set-backs that Mackel reveals gradually through the telling of the story. They've both been battered and beaten down and they're now trying to put their lives back together again. And then, like I said yesterday, everyday life disappears in the wake of the bomb blast.
There are some very raw emotions lurking in their past and it helps make the story more compelling. It's refreshing to see people who are so real. These are no saints with only slightly dinged-up halos. These are people who have fallen and fallen hard and desperately in need of healing. These are people we can all relate to.
