This review is from: The Soldier's Wife (Paperback)
The Soldier's Wife is the best novel I have read in years. Although Vivienne did some things that weren't morally right, she was a kind and caring person. She was a survivor. She took care of the home and provided for her children and mother-in-law while her husband was away at war. Her husband had a lover before he left for war, but Vivienne never even hinted at that to the children or her mother-in-law. The author did such an excellent job in describing the island and the people, I feel like I've actually been there. The ending was a complete surprise. What a wonderful read.
