I won this book on the giveaways and when I started to read it I didn't want to put it down. Each short story was just as good as the last. They were just amazing. Without giving specific details away I just have to say that each story really lets you see how the lives of army families are effected by war. It shows the relationships with wives, girlfriends, husbands, and children that are tainted by war. It really is a must read whether you have family in the army or not. They are truly amazing and heart-wrenching stories. Siobhan Fallon did a great job.
