About Adrienne D'nelle Ruvalcaba

My name is Adrienne D'nelle Ruvalcaba. I was born and raised in Southeast Texas. After high school, I joined the U.S. Army and served four years at Fort Campbell, KY. During my time there, I married a fellow soldier and had two children. Following my years in the service, I ended up as a single parent. After setting out on my own with my two children, I enrolled in the Engineering program at Southern Illinois University.

While at SIU, I completed my bachelor's degree in Civil Engineering with a concentration in structural analysis. Also while at SIU, I was diagnosed with Systemic Lupus Erythematosus. This diagnosis significantly changed my life. Since the onset of this disease, I have learned a lot about those around me and even more about myself. Due to some serious and sobering complications, my health has declined in recent years. I am no longer able to spend time outside with my children, or do many of the things that I used to take for granted. I'm in my early 30's, but most of the time I feel decades older. After a few years of struggling to accept this illness as a part of my life, I've finally come to a more peaceful place. The most important thing I've learned while dealing with this devastating and serious disease is that it does not define who I am.

I've been writing since grade school, and I often take solace in the world I create in my imagination. Most of what I write is romantic fiction, meant purely for emotional fulfillment, enjoyment, and sweet escapism. Real life is difficult enough, and I believe we all need a little break from it sometimes.

If you're a Nicholas Sparks'll love this book. The author examines some tough social issues as she weaves a sweet love story. A page-turner that leaves you anxious for the next novel along with a few damp tissues.

I am really glad I took the time to read this book. Not only was it enjoyable, but it was very realistic in terms of addressing the issues the main characters face all the while not underplaying the power and redeeming quality of love. Kudos to the author.

This is a remarkable first novel. Adrienne Ruvalcaba demonstrates a grasp of difficult material, including insightful treatment of mental illness and the after-effects of abuse while crafting a novel that makes the reader really care about her characters. Bravo!

When I read a romance like The Officer’s Wife, I find myself at a loss when trying to review it. I don't feel that my words can do justice to the story and wonderful writing that Adrienne Ruvalcaba brings to this novel. The book tells the story of Rebecca Graves; a strong, humble women who is trying to make a positive difference in the lives of the women and girls around her. In the process she meets and unexpectedly falls in love with a military officer who makes a positive difference in her life. As a premier novelist, Adrienne writes a story with lasting impact; both as a timeless love story and one that addresses important issues of the day. I think that this is by far the best book I have read in the past year, and will be telling as many people as I can to pick this one up.

Took a chance with The Officers Wife as there had been no reviews. Wow, glad I did! A book that I was dying to get back to whenever I wasn't reading it! Love a book that delivers beyond its genre. Highly recommended.
