I, myself, am married to a police officer. It's so nice to read about other wife's that face the same issues my family does! It is a different path we chose. We chose love. We choose love every time there's a late call or a missed holiday. We chose to love our men, not their profession.

I couldn't put this book down. I am so thankful to Ms. Newman for sharing this book. It was incredibly insightful, and very relieving to hear that other officers wives and partners go through similar trials, and that I am not alone.

My husband and I have been married a year and a half and he is now a state trooper. The transition from being a dispatchers wife to a cops wife has been frightening for me. This book has been an excellent guideline to help me better prepare for this new journey in our life. I am so thankful for the wisdom of wives who have long been on this journey. Thanks for a great read!

A lot of great advice. Some of the topics that were covered are things I've been struggling though and now have some tools to better work with. It's nice to know there is support out there.

If you are new to the world of the LEO wife this book is a must read! So many things that I thought I was experiencing myself thinking I was crazy but after reading the book I found out that there are so many of us out there feeling the same way!!! Since my LEO is a state cop it's hard to get together with other woman in the force but after reading this my LEO and I are visiting a couple from his academy class next week even though we are hours apart! So please read!!!
