Hi Suzanne,
So sorry it took me so long to get back to you!
The series is lightly connected but I've tried to write every book so that you can read it without having picked up any of the other ones. The only books that does not apply to are Because of You and I'll be Home for Christmas. Back to You can be read as stand alone but it answers a cliffhanger (that I promise I will never do again) from Because of You.

That i have an awesome excuse for when the FBI comes and questions me about my search engine results.

In all seriousness, though, I love getting to tell these stories. They're so important to me in so many ways. It's truly a gift. (less)

Updated Coming Home Series Reading List – 10th Anniversary Celebration

Once upon a time, I had a vision for the Coming Home series. Each book would tell the story about soldiers returning from the Iraq War and, importantly, why they continued to serve. I wanted to tell the stories of military families like mine – not Navy SEALs or Army Rangers or Special Forces. Just […]

Fascinating and well balanced look at the Bundys, the range wars out west and the complexity of this entire situation. It’s rare to find something well balanced on this subject that doesn’t demonize either side. Highly recommend.

American Babylon by Philip S Gorski

A stark warning about the factions that may very well bring down American democracy. Not a comforting read but a necessary one for anyone who cares about the state of our nation and it’s place in the world.

Jessica Scott is starting American Babylon: Phil Gorski is one of the clearest scholars writing about American religion and politics today. Anchored in a sociological viewpoint embedded in America’s civil religion history, this book compliments American Covenant.

“Seeing how I've held your penis in my hand, I think that puts you firmly in the not a stranger category.”
Jessica Scott, Because of You

“She said nothing, refusing to meet his gaze. After a long moment, he released her.
“So that’s the way it is, then.” His words were not a question. The door closed quietly behind him, leaving her cold to the bone, hollowed out and empty. Leaving her alone. Just like always.”
Jessica Scott, Carry Me Home

“I feel like I should have a formation and make the plantoon sergeants demonstrate how to put a condom on the correct way."

“Foolish liberals who are trying to read the Second Amendment out of the Constitution by claiming it's not an individual right or that it's too much of a public safety hazard, don't see the danger in the big picture. They're courting disaster by encouraging others to use the same means to eliminate portions of the Constitution they don't like.”
Alan Dershowitz

“He was a fool.
Claire Montoya was convinced she didn’t need anyone. That her way was the only way.
He kept walking.
Because only a fool would want a woman who would never let him in. He could touch her skin, touch her body, but she’d never trust him enough to let him touch her heart. Not the way he wanted. And he couldn't do that. Not with her. Her terms were unacceptable, her barriers too high.”
Jessica Scott, Carry Me Home

“You can regret the end of her life forever. Or you can remember her and honor the life she lived.”
