    Amazing!

    I didn't think I would find a book that has all the emotion that a military wife, fiancee, or girlfriend go through, but this book hits the nail on the head! I would suggest it to anyone!

    We are not alone

    While I read this book... just about every other line I felt like I was reading about myself. Im sure any other Marine wife let alone any military wife would get sucked into this book as deep as I did. I would recommend to anyone in our shoes!

    If you have a deployed loved one read it...you are not alone!

    This book is perfect for someone staying behind during a deployment for the first time. Jessica Caputo gives insight to all the feelings and frustrations you go through.
    As someone who has gone through several deployments this book still hits home. I have a very different story than Caputo but it reminds me that we all have a story and bottom line we all go through the same wave a emotions.
    As my husband prepares to deploy yet again I find this book both enlightening and comforting.
