Over forty writers have contributed to this moving collection of personal essays that draw you right in. Each writer has a unique voice and a different take on what it means to be a military spouse. Some writers are household names and others are seeing their names in print for the first time. Each entry is written with emotional impact, and you will find yourself laughing, remembering, or grabbing a tissue and pausing to reflect on something that grabs at your heart and won't let go.
This book is a perfect gift for anyone who has ever married into the military. It will also appeal to military brats or to civilians who wish to understand the strong bond military families share with each other.
I'd give it six stars if I could!
