This is an excellent book. Very well written and true to form. If you are a military spouse, girlfriend or are just interested in the military lifestyle this is the book for you. Real life stories, emotions, struggles and triumphs. A must read!

A great book! I copuld not put this book down. Break out the tissues. The women and children of servicemen deployed during wartime are often forgotten. They are american heroes and deserve more than inciome relative to welfare recipients. It sickens me that our governmnet would only give these families such low pay that they could qualify for welfare.

This is, by far, the best military spouse related book out there. It has totally different perspectives from different spouses, allowing the reader to understand that every one is different and pigeon-holing military spouses will never be effective. Henderson cultivates the idea that we should celebrate our differences in order to form a more robust support system. I recommend this to any military spouse.
