Review by: missrhe on Feb. 19, 2013 :
I have to say, that upon diving into the book, as I often do, without checking out all the details I wasn't quite aware that it was a novel. Truth be told you wouldn't know if it was held in a plain brown cover. The book is really quite remarkable to read. As I'm sure most military spouses can attest to, not a lot of details are shared. I remember watching some sort of documentary and it was concerning an area of "that place with lots of sand" quite near where my husband had been previously. I learned more from that hour show then I had learned from him. He didn't want to worry me. I get it and I love him for it. The truth of the matter is that it wouldn't matter if we watched every show, film or documentary ever made, we couldn't possible understand 100%. If you would like some insight into the life, the life of war, with a little bit of the real ness of it, I suggest this book. It creates a story about real (even though it is fiction) people, that are human and not just faceless soldiers fighting a war. They have emotions and feelings that drive them, like we all do. I was also a little bit partial to this book because it portrayed the lives of National Guard Soldiers, which is not often done.
