About the Author
Shellie Vandevoorde was inspired to write this book after years of experience as a military wife and mother who continues dealing with the challenge of being in a long-distance relationship with her solider husband. During her own six-year army career, she was named "Soldier of the Month" at the 101st Airborne Division. She is currently involved in a range of volunteer work and has spoken for "National Women's History Month" in her local area. She lives in Savannah, Georgia. --This text refers to an alternate Paperback edition.

it's a good guide to help get through depression, to look for support groups, and really manage a family. I think this book should be read by soldiers and their spouses alike.
most Long Distance Relationship books focus on civilian couples. reading about scheduling weekly or bi-monthly visits just made me sad. this book addresses the unique reality of my situation.
i feared the content might be redundant (ie stressing communication, duh!) but was specific and smart. highly recommend.
I loved that I could relate to some of the situations and read what others may have done to help them through - counting my husband's 2 or 3 month trips away from home for training/schooling as prep for deployment.
Because he knows it's important to me & for us to prepare, I even read several chapters WITH my spouse and we were able to discuss the topics that he usually dislikes speaking about. This book has helped us communicate to each other our fears and given us ideas on how to prepare "together" for the year ahead.
There are other books along the same lines as this one that I may purchase.
If you're like me, a person who doesn't want to spend precious time trolling the internet for sources and stories on how a spouses handle deployments, then you might enjoy it.
So, whether your new to military life or your going through your 10th deployment... This book is a wonderful comfort and it's nice to know that you're not alone and the stories really help you put things into perspective.
You won't feel whole until your family member is home, but hopefully... This book will help fill some holes that can only be filled by you (with a little help from your spouse ;)
Although we aren't married this book I feel addresses every concern and helps me think about things differently. I still consult it from time to time and really felt it has helped me be as strong as my boyfriend believe I am.
I definitely recommend it to anyone who has a military boyfriend/husband/girlfriend/wife
Two thumbs up!
