When your spouse goes into combat, you don't know if they'll come back. And if they do, what shape they'll be in either physically or mentally. Marilyn's book lets us take a peek behind closed doors to see what their lives are like.
I have to warn you, I cried not once but several times throughout the story. How can you not tear up when they struggle to put one foot in front of the other, to figure out where to go from here, to try to carry on despite losing a limb or a spouse?
This is the first in Ms Pappano's Tallgrass series and I'm impatiently looking forward to finding out how the other cast of characters deal with their circumstances. This book will give you faith in the human spirit and how life can beat you down but not take you out.
I HIGHLY recommend this book!
I'm very anxious to read Therese's story coming in Feb. 2014.
The emotional ride--from laughter to tears and all points in between--kept me glued to the pages!
Besides a great love story, my favorite part is the relationship between the friends in the Margarita Club. The women in the club truly come to life. They live and breathe and treat one another like women friends really do.
Marilyn Pappano is a fantastic observer of human nature, and an even better story teller.
Thank you, Marilyn, for the hours of entertainment! (Hurry up and bring out the next one. :) )
In A HERO TO COME HOME TO, the reader is drawn into an emotional journey with the characters as they learn to cope with death, injury, and how to put their lives back together. This is a book I couldn't stop reading. Even after I finished, I wondered what the characters were doing.
A HERO TO COME HOME TO is Marilyn Pappano's finest book to date. A definite keeper on my shelf. I look forward to reading the rest of the Tallgrass Series.
This is not your typical light hearted romance. That said there are moments of humor and silliness. Most of the time this story is an honest look at the sacrifices that military spouses have made and respectful of how they cope when their loved ones die in battle. Carly and her friends live their lives and hope for future happiness but they have bittersweet memories that will never be left behind. . Ms. Pappano does an excellent job of portraying characters that are trying to balance the past and the present with an uncertain future. The relationship between Carly and Dane unfolds at just the right pace and feels realistic given the circumstances. They deserve a second chance at love and they have to work to get it.
Carly is further along the healing process than Dane and that causes some bumps in their road to happiness. There are friends and supporting characters who add so much to the story, especially Carly's friend Therese who will be featured in the next book in the Tallgrass series- A Man to Hold On To.
