Full disclosure --one of my stories is in this anthology! But let me tell you, I think this is a great book to give to military spouses. It is so comforting to read that we are not alone in this crazy lifestyle. The stories run the gamut from tear-jerkers, to practical advice, to laugh-out-loud anecdotes. An easy read, and makes a great gift between spouses for birthdays, housewarmings, and the all-too-familiar military move goodbye gift.

I really enjoyed this book! It was a great poolside read because the stories were all short so you could easily pick up and put down. Some of the stories weren't my cup of tea, but the ones that were good I REALLY enjoyed. Some of my favorite short stories in this book: Write in Pen, Smokin' Hot Romance, Secondary Losses, Friends in Need Friends in Deed, and My Son's Battle. ...more
