If you've ever been an Army wife, you'll like this book. The characters are spot-on. As I was reading, I kept remembering other wives and the guys they were married to. The one thing I didn't like about the book was the choppy editing. I have a feeling that a lot of good stuff got left on the cutting room floor. Still, it's worth the read, and you'll enjoy it if you like those Hallmark movies.

This is one of those books that you finish reading and feel the need to sigh. It's a sweet story, a feel good story. A story about love overcoming all of the obstacles and challenges that life hurtles at us day after day. The story centers around Ron, a young military man, and Katie, the woman of his dreams. We follow them through a friendship that blossoms into more, through years of seperation during World War II, through paternity tests and losses of friends--all the while, the main theme is blatantly obvious: love can conquer all. I admit, I'm not much of a romance reader. Initially that's what I pegged this book as..and while there is somewhat of a romantic feel to it, its not all gushy mushy romantic. It's a nice heartfelt story...and I found myself enjoying it to my surprise. I would definitely say that this book will appeal to more females than males..call me sexist, but I can't imagine any of my guy friends reading it..I can however, see them being dragged to the movie theater to watch it, when its adapted into a feature film.. If you want to read a simple, heart warming story..this is the one for you.

When I picked up this book and began to read, I felt myself being transported into the 1940's. I was able to picture vividly the clothing, hairstyles, cars and the morals of the time. The characters, Katie McNeill and Ron Miller moved through my imagination like characters in a movie. Today if a young lady wants to meet a young man all she has to do is ask him out. Not so in the 40's. The cost of Katie getting to know Ron would have an effect on her life for many, many years. The separation of war is something that affects most families now to some extent. The separation of families during WWII brought the wives of the soldiers together and they found support in each other in a long arduous time. Each chapter of this book had it's cliffhanger, some with happy endings and some not. At each point, I felt Katie and Ron's joys and sorrows. This is a book I will keep on my shelf, sharing with special friends and read again and again.

I bought this book to read on vacation, and thought it was going to be good romantic fluff. I was surprised to find that it's not your average romance novel. For one thing, it's written just as much from the hero's point of view as from the heroine's. The dialogue is first-rate. It's mature, intelligent and not at all your stock-in-trade romance novel banter. The drawback to the book is the author's background. According to her bio, she's spent most of her life in the newspaper business, and unfortunately her writing doesn't always make the leap from good newspaper reporting to descriptive prose. Overall, though, it's a good, engaging story especially in the last five chapters when our hero comes home from the war. Campbell does a good job of portraying his grief & depression and the other issues he must deal with such as learning to be a father to his three-year-old son. I'll give it five stars and say that's it's worth reading, because the characters, dialogue and plotting makeup for any flaws in the descriptiveness of the writing.

'A Soldier's Love' written by L.K. Campbell, is a fast-paced, romantic war-time novel that brings to life many issues that military families are many times forced to deal with. Campbell's novel deals with many life issues...love marriage, family, friends, births, deaths, betrayal, abuse, war, infidelity and forgiveness. In the end, the reader will feel that love does conquer all.

This novel is a good way to pass the time on a rainy day. It is not bogged down with too many characters or subplots. It is clear that the author had a specific direction for the book, and Campbell takes us there without confusing sidetrips. The subject matter and plot of this book depart from formula-style romances, but it is still a very sweet and satisfying love story that romance readers will enjoy. There also seem to be some moral lessons in the book. The weakness of the book, and the reason I gave it four stars instead of five, is that Campbell spends a great deal of energy on character development but does not work as hard at creating an atmosphere. Some settings and environments in the book are left to the readers imagination. All-in-all, it's worth the read.
