I hadn’t really read much lately but I was really excited to start Kristin Hannah’s newest book Home Front. Kristin Hannah is one of my favorite authors and I’ve talked about her before in previous posts. I layed in bed ALL day on Sunday reading it, I could not put it down! I love books that just suck me right in from the beginning.
This is from Amazon.com
Like many couples, Michael and Jolene Zarkades have to face the pressures of everyday life—children, careers, bills, chores—even as their twelve-year marriage is falling apart. Then an unexpected deployment sends Jolene deep into harm’s way and leaves defense attorney Michael at home, unaccustomed to being a single parent to their two girls. As a mother, it agonizes Jolene to leave her family, but as a solider she has always understood the true meaning of duty. In her letters home, she paints a rose-colored version of her life on the front lines, shielding her family from the truth. But war will change Jolene in ways that none of them could have foreseen. When tragedy strikes, Michael must face his darkest fear and fight a battle of his own—for everything that matters to his family.
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.
If you haven’t read a book by Kristin Hannah, then you don’t know what you’re missing out on. She’s an amazing writer!!! I think everyone should read this book!!!
