This is a heart-warming story of a military man at war, not only with himself but also with the love he feels for his wife. The story takes you into the emotional journey of being overseas, or worse, having a loved one overseas. Rob great story telling. Readers will be emotionally invested. I give it thumbs up on my recommendation list.

This book could have been something really good! If the author put more effort and work into this book, it could have been amazing. Being a huge fan of Army Wives, I thought this book would be similar, I was wrong. The different stories needed more substance. I felt like I was reading tidbits of the character's journal entries on their calendars. The quality of portraying the love between Jim and Jen lacked.

The synopsis on the back cover of the book greatly exaggerates what the book is really a

I love this story about love that lasts through anything. It survives a war, literally! I couldn't put it down and can't wait to see what is next for Mr. Burgess!
