My Soldier Too

( 1 )

Overview

"I wish I'd known love in this life." Captain Madison Brown strained to hear the dying soldier's last words in the makeshift hospital on the fields of war-torn Iraq. The lieutenant's final comment haunted Madison for the remainder of her tour in Iraq and then followed her home to Massachusetts. Ironically, Madison wanted no part of love for herself-or so she thought until she crossed paths with Isabella Parisi, an idealistic young social worker who challenged her to love again.

More About This Book

Overview

"I wish I'd known love in this life." Captain Madison Brown strained to hear the dying soldier's last words in the makeshift hospital on the fields of war-torn Iraq. The lieutenant's final comment haunted Madison for the remainder of her tour in Iraq and then followed her home to Massachusetts. Ironically, Madison wanted no part of love for herself-or so she thought until she crossed paths with Isabella Parisi, an idealistic young social worker who challenged her to love again.

Isabella, a dedicated professional from a tightly knit Catholic family in Boston's North End, has a seemingly perfect life: a satisfying job, a family she adores, and a devoted boyfriend. A chance encounter with Captain Madison Brown causes Isabella to question everything she thought she believed in. And the emotionally guarded Captain Brown gives Isabella even more reason to doubt the feelings swirling within her.

Isabella's family, Madison's commitment to the Army, and their fears about what it means to love each other conspire to keep them apart. Just when it seems they've finally dodged all of the landmines between them, Madison is deployed to Afghanistan.

As an officer in the Army, Madison swore herself to be a guardian of freedom and the American way of life. Can Isabella accept Madison for the person-the soldier-she is? What price duty? What cost honor? How much must one sacrifice in exchange for the promise of love?

Not all of the ravages of war happen on the battlefield. What happens to Isabella and the relationship between the two women when Isabella must confront the fact that Madison is not just her lover, but her soldier too?

    Good debut

    My Soldier Too deals with a topic that isn't covered nearly enough in the press or mainstream publishing. What impact is serving in the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan having on female soldiers? Military women have often been ignored, but, until recently, they were fairly safe from most of the dangers of war. Now though the policy of the US military to not put women in combat has no relevance when there is no defined battle zone and women are coming home with the same problems as the male soldiers. This situation is even more complicated when the soldier is gay.

    On the surface My Soldier Too is simply a romance, another of the love at first sight and how do we deal with it stories. It goes beyond the obvious though to deal with more serious matters. Early in the story there is a very realistic assessment of what the end of Don't Ask, Don't Tell really means. The issue of the neglect suffered by many veterans is also raised. In the middle, the issues of duty, honor and family relationships are pertinent. Isabella can't understand Madison's sense of duty to the country and Madison fails to understand the power of family ties. The book ends dealing with the impact of war in a very personal way for Madison. The story could have been lengthened to explore each of these and taken the book beyond the realm of romance to explore some important issues. Instead, it leaves the issues hanging, which should cause the reader to contemplate the answers, though that's not necessary in order to enjoy the book.
