ALYMER, Quebec /CitizenWire/ -- Fiercely independent author K.R. Butt has unveiled her thought-provoking book, "Unarmoured: PTSD Affects Us All" (ISBN: 978-0228869566; August, 2023). In this compelling work, Butt takes readers on a journey through the life of Norah, a young flight attendant, as she delves into the world of online dating in search of true love and family. Little does she know that her path will intersect with the hidden scars of war and the profound effects of Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD).

The heart of "Unarmoured" follows Norah's unexpected encounter with Grant, an army officer in the Canadian Armed Forces. Grant's life has been marked by tours in Afghanistan and Bosnia, but the secrets he carries beneath his uniform remain concealed from Norah until it's too late.

"Unarmoured" emerges as a profound testimony to a military family's silent suffering as they navigate the far-reaching ripples of PTSD.

With a Bachelor of Arts degree from Memorial University of Newfoundland and Labrador, Butt has dedicated her life to advocacy, including volunteering at her children's elementary school and the Military Family Resource Centre. Now, she has embarked on an active quest for justice, making "Unarmoured" an essential component of her endeavor.

"Unarmoured: PTSD Affects Us All" is a courageous and enlightening exploration of the hidden struggles within Canadian military families. It offers a compelling insight into the profound impact of PTSD and serves as a beacon of hope for those affected.
