I found Mollie Gross though milspouse mag, and loved her articles, then when her book came out I opted to review it for the radio show I cohost. I can say that I finally found a wife who doesn't talk about living on the p's and q's but really lays it all out. I feel like I am hearing the words of my best friend in our most bizarre moments. Mollie strikes a nerve with every branch, with ever rate and rank. Confessions is the book every wife needs when life seems chaotic for that great pick me up! Mollie doesn't mess around, there is no worry about what is expected, and you are free to accept what is! An awesome book for any mil spouse looking for some fun reading!!

Top 10 List of Books About Deployment for Military Families

10: THE WISHING TREE by Mary Redman

A children's picture book about a little girl who wants to find a way to support her father while he is deployed. She decides to make a wishing tree by writing her hopes and prayers on yellow ribbons that she ties onto the tree branches. A cute story and a great idea to do with kids.

9: MILITARY LIFE: STORIES AND POEMS FOR CHILDREN by Various Authors

This is a lovely collection of stories and poems for military brats. Not all of the entries are about deployment. The book covers military life in general so it's pretty versatile.

8: YOU KNOW WHEN THE MEN ARE GONE by Siobhan Fallon

This is a collection of beautifully written short stories about Army families living at Fort Hood. I read this book in 2 days and was so sad when I was finished because I didn't want it to end. The only reason this book isn't closer to my #1 is because I wasn't crazy about one of the stories that was about a mil spouse who was cheating on her husband during deployment. But despite the fact that I don't want the general public to think that all mil spouses cheat on their husbands, I'm well aware that it does happen and therefore fair game to be openly discussed. The book also sparked an interesting conversation with a mil spouse friend of mine. She hated it. I didn't. But it sure was fun discussing it.

7: NIGHT CATCH by Brenda Ehrmantraut

Another children's picture book. This one is about staying connected during a parent's deployment. I've read this to my own kids countless times, and they love it.

6: ALICE BLISS by Laura Harrington

This is a novel about a teenage girl coping with her father's deployment.

I am in the military and I am a military wife as well. My husband and I are going through our first separation and it involves 2 back to back deployments so anything to keep my mind busy is great but this book hits it on the nail! My sister isn't married to the military (yet) but she is bringing a little bundle of joy into the world with a Navy officer and I also sent her this book because even in the first few pages there were stories that happened EXACTLY the same when my sister had to make her transition into his world. I can't believe there could possibly be bad reviews. Some people just have no sense of humor! Being in the military myself, it was 3 years before I got a chance to experience the "wife" side of the situation and deal with the first deployment. I can honestly say, Mollie knows what she is talking about because me and ALL my girlfriends went through the same things and it's just hilarious to know it wasn't just us, it's military wives around the world. It doesn't matter if your spouse is in for one enlistment or is on the verge of retirement, anyone could find things they relate to in this book. I can't wait for the next one!

This is a great comedic take on the military wife life. I love how she used some truly hilarious stories to provide some great tips on adjusting and surviving military life.

I put Mollie's book on my Christmas list and my husband actually got me her book and cd!

We listened to it on the way home from Christmas and were dying it was so funny! I knew I couldn't wait to read her book, but it wasn't until recently I was able to get to it while on a plane ride.Oh Em Geeeeeeeeeee!(This really explains how I felt, haha!) My plane neighbors but have thought I was crazy because I literally was laughing so hard every other second!

I just couldn't put the book down! I swear we are so alike and our husbands are the same too! The book is so easy to read and its like I'm listening to my new girlfriend tell stories, and I SWEAR Mollie is right in front of me giggling along! Like she's going to pop right out of the book! I have been thinking about it all night and morning! It's gonna be my new gift to military friends!

I really enjoyed Mollie's candid view on the military and couldn't agree more about the up, downs, memories, and shenanigans it brings!

Thank you for sharing your life and thank you for the signed book Mollie!

Mollie's new Fan!

So, I have been reading the book since I put my kids to bed 2 hours ago and I can not stop laughing! I have never laughed so hard when reading something my entire life. I can relate to so many of the stories, especially since Pendleton has been our only duty station so far. While I can't relate to Mollie's tummy problems..., I still can relate to the discomfort of the good looking young Navy doctors...Dr. Lund delivered one of my kids and I was traumatized, so I can only imagine how your experience with him must have been! Thank you so much for writing this...it's definitely going to help me get through this current deployment! :)
