Following the last book I read which was a very heavy, suspenseful story, I wanted to read something filled with love and light. This story has both...along with a story of a very brave injured soldier who fights his way back after a serious injury which ended his military career as a pilot. He lost his best friend, but learned to walk again and became an attorney. He finds Maddie...sister to the best friend he lost in the crash and although he fights against his faith and his growing feelings f ...more

I was concerned about this book going in because I don't read many inspiration romance novels and the ones I have read are very often bad. Brenda Coulter took care of that by penning an excellent book. What I should have been concerned with was sleep…since I didn’t start reading the book until 7 o’clock at night and couldn’t put the darn thing down! Inspirational romance is difficult to pull off without sounding contrived or sappy. Brenda Coulter avoids that problem by simply writing a great sto ...more

America’s soldiers matter a lot to me. I’ve been a Soldier’s Angel to some, and I’ve “adopted” three more on my own. We pray for them daily in Chapel at my cottage school. My Dad is a Korean War vet, and I am a Daughter of the American Revolution. These are a few reasons why I was eager to read Brenda Coulter’s new book, AT HIS COMMAND.

This book, published by Steeple Hill, is a part of a six-author miniseries called “Homecoming Heroes,” but can be read as a stand-alone novel.

Recently, my taste in reading material came under fire by a neighbor/friend of mine. She basically told me that the books I read are trash. (Well, she says that is NOT what she said.... but that's what I heard.) She DID say that the books I tend to favor have no substance to them and that it was a shame that someone had to die in all the books I read. Same difference between that and saying they're trash, right? Well, I stood up for the authors I am loyal to and assured her that she should not j ...more

That first line reeled me in. It told me the heroine was going to be a young, dewey eyed, probably sunshiney girl, loved and adored by everyone she meets. Not my favorite kind of heroine (probably because I'm an old, weary eyed, well, you get the point). But it also told me we would get the story from both the heroine and the hero's point of view, which I'm a big fan of. And it told me there would be plenty of amusing lines and humor infused in the story, which I'm also a big fan of.

a great, quick read. not so lite, but ...

once again, i feel like i WAAYYY under-appreciate what SSOOO many do and sacrifice "just" for my freedom, and, those personally who do it. i need to make sure, in some way, that i include more in my children's home schooling so that they too realize freedom DOES come at a price, especially more so for some than others, and to find some way that we can CONTINUALLY say "thank you" to those who all too willingly pay that price for us

Getting a glimpse of how armies suffer post-traumatic stress even though its fiction. I may never know how terrible wars are for them. A nice read!
