From the moment I started this book, I was enthralled! I have no military connection, but that didn’t matter. This book is filled with stories of love and emotion, of heartache and struggle. You can feel the sense of danger as suicide bombers are attacking a few miles away. Your heart will break with theirs as his sweet family struggles with goodbyes and not being together on special occasions such as Christmas. It is a book that I feel anyone who likes to read will enjoy!
