Chapter 1   —   Updated Jan 06, 2020   —   1,932 characters
Rob pulled off of the interstate and continued on the road leading to the town of Pinecrest, Pennsylvania. Pinecrest was a quiet place for the most part, but when the busy summer and ski seasons come around, the population at least doubles. Rob drove past the hospital and police station then stopped at the GetGo store to gas up the mustang and grab a coffee to go. He continued on and thought to himself, little Robby caught his first fish here, sure had us some good times up on the lake. Rob eventually made a right turn and headed past the old general store and up the winding road to Butterfly Lake.

With the last of the long hills behind him, Rob pulled into the driveway and hit the brakes in a hurry. In front of the car, a covey of doves flushed up into the pines, and a pair of bushy-tailed gray squirrels stood watching before scurrying out of harm’s way. Rob continued on, parked the car, and then took a deep, rejuvenating breath of the cool, fresh mountain air. He opened the trunk and looked at the family cabin with a smile on his face.

The old cedar-wood structure wasn’t much, but it had good bones, the kind one could get used to. Inside, there was a cozy stone fireplace and a loft with two bedrooms. The wooden-plank kitchen table bore the dings and scratches of times gone by, and it was awaiting more.
One step out the back door carried visitors into another world. The cabin sat on a plot of land at the edge of an ancient forest, full of pine, oak, and hemlocks. A stone’s throw away was the natural spring-fed waters of Butterfly Lake, its ripples glimmering with flickers of reflected golden sunlight. A narrow, worn trail winds its way through a copse of trees and down to a small boat dock at the water’s edge.
Rob inhaled the crisp cool air once more, then resumed preparing the cabin for his best friend Tex and his family. He hoped it would be a relaxing, reinvigorating vacation

I'm delighted to share recent reviews for MY LIFE FOR HER  (the enchanced edition) 

Details on Amazon  

Aug 07, 2019 Dianne rated it, really liked it  ·  author-reviewthriller
The things we do for love.

Robert J. Saniscalchi’s MY LIFE FOR HER starts out like a gentle rain that soon becomes a thunderous deluge of action, adventure and suspense as two men risk everything to bring one mother home to her children.

Great story-telling by this author creates a riveting tale of bravery and daring. Marrino feels like a true flesh and blood man, his past behind him, but his skills forever imbedded. I loved the counter-point that Tex gave to Marrino’s seriousness, a deadly weapon buried deep within a bit of a showy, but loyal friend and brother.

Wonderful reading, real heroes and action, action, action. Highly recommended!

I received a complimentary copy from Robert J. Saniscalchi! This is my honest and voluntary review.

My Life For Her (Enhanced Edition)

Kat's review
May 14, 2019 it was amazing

Rob Marrino, the highly decorated ex-army veteran, is happy to be working as a small-town cop after returning from the Vietnam war. A major drug bust throws him in the path of a dangerous Columbian drug cartel. Rob turns to his friend from his Vietnam days, Richard Larson aka Tex, a retired sergeant with the First Marines. Wary of bullets and violence, Rob knows the only way to take down the bad guys is to use their collective combat skills.

Rob is the main protagonist, but it’s Tex who steals the show. Saniscalchi expertly provides him a brusque, confident persona. Tex’s clever analytical mind under duress will delight readers. Saniscalchi neatly weaves a deceptively simple plot into a fast-paced action thriller and delivers a tense, satisfying finale. A delight to read!
My Life For Her (Enhanced Edition)
Robert J. Saniscalchi (Goodreads Author) Grady's review Feb 11, 2019 really liked it
‘Courage is fear holding on a minute longer.’ General George S. Patton

New Jersey born author Robert Saniscalchi returns to his 2010 debut novel with editorial enhancement by Autumn Conley and portions of the book embellished for the progress of the story. He subsequently published BULLETS AND BANDAGES (inspired by his older brother who was a field medic Vietnam 68-69) and FREEEDOM’S LIGHT (addressing the wars in Afghanistan). Now MY LIFE FOR HER is placed before readers as a more polished novel that reflects the impact of the Vietnam War and the interaction of a veteran as a policeman fighting the drug cartels. Robert lives in both Pennsylvania and Florida.

Robert opens this story of Vietnam War veteran medic who has returned home to Pikeville and has become a police officer. The mood Robert establishes is sensitive and reflective: The setting is well-established Americana, and then the story takes flight.

Many aspects of the story seem tied to fact – Pikeville is in New Jersey, Rob is a veteran medic like Robert’s brother – and that is one reason the theme feels true. But  this reader found the story intense and involving and a fine speedy read. Will we ever reach a period when previous wars do not permanently impact both veterans and their families as in PTSD et al? Likely not until wars go away. We go on.

Freedom's Light by Robert J Saniscalchi  author-review
It was the end of the innocence for the United States as terrorists led a multi-pronged attack on American soil on September 11, 2001 and Robert Saniscalchi has captured the shock, the horror and our country’s answer inFREEDOM’S LIGHT.

What begins with three brothers bonding on a hunting trip will take one of them away on a top secret military mission to thwart another possible attack, this time with his brothers-in-arms, leaving the woman he loves behind.

Robert Saniscalchi has re-created the chaotic terror of that day and taken it into the realm of both its reality and a fictionalized aftermath as he deftly nails the emotional upheaval of a nation brought stunned, to its knees, unaware of another eminent attack or the bravery of the unsung heroes who risked their lives for home and heart, good versus evil.

This is my second book by Mr. Saniscalchi and I think that this one demonstrates a strong background for MY LIFE FOR HER. Well written, readers will feel the past come to life as well as the drive of an elite squad of patriotic warriors pledged to risk it all. If you want a slice of history, of the eternal battle of good versus evil, this is an amazingly gripping read.

I received a complimentary borrowed edition from Robert J. Saniscalchi. This is my honest and voluntary review.
