Overview

Major Nichol "Nic" Caldwell is the only survivor of her helicopter crash in Iraq. She is left alone to wonder why she and she alone. Survivor's guilt has nothing on the young Major as she is forced to deal with the scars, both physical and mental, left from her ordeal overseas. Before the accident, she couldn't think of doing anything else in her life. In fact, she even had sacrificed love for service, but now she questions the very ideals she once believed in. Was it worth it? Sent Stateside to recover, she finds herself at the Marine Corps base in California where her new job is to inform families of a loved one's death. One of the "informs" will change her life forever.

Claire Monroe is your average military wife, with a loving husband and a little girl. She is used to the time apart from her husband. In fact, it was one of the reasons she married him. Then, one day, her life is turned upside down when she gets a visit from the Marine Corps. She finds herself losing a husband but awakening a long-gone side of herself she never thought she would see again. Is she being disrespectful to the memory of her recently dead husband or is she finally being true to who she really is? Can these two women come to terms with the past and finally find happiness, or will their shared sense of honor keep them apart?

    OK story, quick read

    Major Nichol "Nic" Caldwell has been sent home to recover after she survived a helicopter crash in Iraq. Nic suffers from tremendous survivor's guilt because she was the only member of her crew to live. Her job now is to do the "Informs," notifications to the families of other Marines who have been killed and help them with funeral plans and anything else they need. When she is asked to notify Claire Monroe of her husband's death, Nic's life makes a dramatic change. She thinks at first that she's especially interested in helping Claire because Nic knew her and her husband before. Claire has a young daughter and appeared to have a happy marriage, so Nic is drawn to them. Claire has a secret though and it causes her to lean on Nic more than usual. Nic finds herself re-evaluating her feelings about both her career and the possibility of having a family.

    Things happen pretty quickly in this story. Because of a military screw-up, the funeral for Claire's husband is delayed and she starts falling in love with Nic before the poor man is even buried. The story is also predictable. Claire is vulnerable and self-sacrificing to her husband's memory. Nic is stoic and honorable and doesn't want to take advantage of the situation. Naturally they fall in love. Things go a little too smoothly for these two since the book was written before "Don't Ask, Don't Tell" was repealed, but that's what happens in fiction.

    Always Faithful is an OK story with just a few editing mistakes in it. It's fine for a couple of hours of light reading in an afternoon or evening.
