This book was written with heartbreaking real emotion and discretion about life in the U.S. Navy and the effect on one man's family. But it is also equally real about military life in any of the armed services with regard to deployments and how they affect the families involved. I laughed and I cried-something I just don't do with any old book! I highly recommend this book!

Wiggs writes an emotionally-charged story of facing tough decisions at an inopportune time. Wonderful tale of a career-Navy marraige and tough times that the family has to work through. Highly recommeded.

I really had to concentrate when I first started reading this book. Since I have never been around any 'Navy' language I wasn't familiar with the terms Susan Wiggs used. After she introduced the Navy character and moved onto the other main character, I was able to get into this book. It was about a woman who had been known as the Navy wife and wanted to find herself again. It dealt with many things all women go through especially turning 40. Great read and I hope after reading this review you will consider asking for a swap!

This book takes Susan Wiggs' research and writing to a new level. The opening chapter is stunning in its intensity and detail. As the story progresses, it doesn't disappoint. Her character development, plot line, and prose are all top notch. I devoured this book!

I enjoyed this book very much. The trials and tribulations of navy life for three couples. Sad but heart warming also.
