All marriages have a breaking point.
All families have wounds.
All wars have a cost…
PLEASE NOTE: this isn’t an ‘official’ review. I finished reading this book at a time/place when I couldn’t write a full review, but for now, I just wanted to get down a few quick thoughts…
This was such a great book! I’ve recently fallen in love with this author’s writing and once again, I found this to be a really fantastic read! For a change of pace from my usual reads, it’s actually not a Romance, it’s more in the Women’s Fiction genre but it’s by an author whose writing I LOVE because she writes with such powerful imagery and raw honesty that it feels like you’re living the story with the characters. This story is about a woman who serves in the military flying helicopters and who is also a loving mother and a wife at home with a husband she loves and two little girls… and it’s about what happens to her and her family when she gets deployed. This is a very character-centric story and I’ll be honest, that it’s a very serious read. I don’t come from a military family, but the story is written in such a way that it FEELS real.
This author is my go-to for anytime I want to step outside my beloved Romance world, and this was another winner!! Ultimately, the blurb gives the perfect description:
“At once a profoundly honest look at modern marriage and a dramatic exploration of the toll war takes on an ordinary American family, Home Front is a story of love, loss, heroism, honor, and ultimately, hope.”
Rating: 4.5 stars. Standalone Women’s Fiction.
