The Best Soldier's Wife
by Katrin Horowitz
The Best Soldier's Wife is the deeply personal story of one woman trying to cope with
the shocks and aftershocks of Canada’s war in Afghanistan, told in a series of letters from a military wife in Victoria to the wife of a fictionalized Chief of Defense Staff. In her letters she uses a number of real events to ground her story in the nitty-gritty of the actual war as it unfolded.
