Excellent reading. A story that needed to be told. It is a heartwarming account of the experiences of these women and their families. I don't know whether the existence of Schilling Manor is well known, but it warmed my heart to read about life there. I know I didn't know and neither did my husband who served in
Vietnam. Great reading.

Excellent look at what the "Waiting Wives" lived through as their husbands served in Vietnam. Great book.

I found this interesting for several reasons:

1) I grew up in KS but was not aware of Schilling Manor!

2) My father was in Vietnam

3) My husband is currently deployed for the third time to Iraq, so there were definitely similarities.
