Great enjoyed the characters return and the continued sisterhood! I liked that it didn't sugar coat the realities faced by the families.

I loved "band of sisters" and this was just as good. I could not put it down. It gave (what I would think) a real glimpse of what military life and reentry would be like. I cannot even begin to imagine that life and am so grateful for the soldiers and their families!!! Very good read!!

When you shed tears in the first chapter, you know you're in for it! Coming Home is a sequel to Band of Sisters, and continues the story of 5 military wives as they greet their husbands and welcome them home after a year's service overseas.

Strong, poignant characters bring to life the challenges that face military families as they readjust to home-life with their husbands. A realistic and compassionate look into the hearts of the women as they continue in their friendships and support each other no matter what.

Excellent women's fiction!

Format: Paperback
Band of Sisters, the first book, was about five women whose husbands were deployed to Afghanistan. They formed a strong group of women to help each other while their husbands were gone. This novel showed the harsh reality of war, and the families left behind while a spouse is deployed. This book of friendship and strength won Author Annette Lyon a 2010 Whitney Award in General Fiction.

This second installment, Coming Home, shows the impact of war on the men, and how the families deal with their husbands and fathers now home from war. This book is realistic, as it explores many of the true-to-life issues that many of our service men and women live with.

One of the five women, Marianne, has become a widow, as her husband died while serving overseas. The novel shows the grief of the family, as they now have to live life forever without their husband and father.

Another woman, Brenda, has the heartache of finding out her husband has PTSD, and he goes from being severely depressed to out of control with his anger. With the PTSD he loses his job and his wife finds out she's pregnant.

Then poor Jessie, who didn't mind her husband being gone for a year, once again has to deal with his abusive and bullying nature. She also finds out about the many bad habits he picked up while he was deployed. Soon she fears for the safety of herself and children.

Kim, the youngest women of the group, is having a hard time adjusting to being a "wife". Newly married when she sent her husband off, she only knows how to play well the role of a Mom to her baby son who was born during the past year. Kim is having the harder time adjusting to having her husband home.

I really loved the first book Band of Sisters and put off reading this one for a while, but had to finish it cover to cover once I started to read it. Loved it and it deserve the 5 stars.
