North, a former Marine lieutenant and author of "American Heroes: On the Homefront" stopped by Abilene as part of his book tour.
He signed books and took pictures at LifeWay Christian Store. The book is based on the lives of people serving the country and the families they leave behind.
"It's a war and love story about those who serve and those who love them," North said. "It's also about those who help them get better after they have been hurt very badly."
North's book tour is nationwide and plans to stop in over 40 cities.
