In True Valor, Henderson continues her Uncommon Heroes series about navy SEALS. Her heroine is a combat pilot, Gracie Yates, who goes down behind enemy lines in Iraq; her hero is air force major Bruce Stanton, an extractions specialist who rescues her. Both knew each other in civilian life, but their fledgling romance had been dashed because of complications with friends and their separate deployments. Henderson's writing is the envy of a lot of evangelical writers for its gritty and convincing detail: Gracie's flight control of a nervous pilot's approach to an aircraft carrier, for instance, is so well done readers will think Henderson must have been there.
