For Captain Dietrich the war is over, and he is waiting out the hostilities at a Canadian POW camp. But a brutal attack on a fellow prisoner has him looking for the men responsible while he comes to terms with his own feelings about what the true face of courage really is.
Reparations revolves around a gay character and Dietrich's developing relationship with him within the confines of a Canadian POW camp. This is, however, not a piece of slash fiction. There are no sex scenes (same sex or otherwise) and the violence is only implied, although the aftermath is described. However, it's not a story for the squeamish. It is a story for those who believe in compassion, caring, and the human capacity for change. It's also about hatred, bigotry, and man's inhumanity to man. It's about knowing when to ask "why" and when to say "no." It's about acknowledging the humanity within every person.
