Synopsis

In her bestselling novels Kristin Hannah has plumbed the depths of friendship, the loyalty of sisters, and the secrets mothers keep. Now, in her most emotionally powerful story yet, she explores the intimate landscape of a troubled marriage with this provocative and timely portrait of a husband and wife, in love and at war. All marriages have a breaking point. All families have wounds. All wars have a cost. . . . Like many couples, Michael and Jolene Zarkades have to face the pressures of everyday life---children, careers, bills, chores---even as their twelve-year marriage is falling apart. Then an unexpected deployment sends Jolene deep into harm’s way and leaves defense attorney Michael at home, unaccustomed to being a single parent to their two girls. As a mother, it agonizes Jolene to leave her family, but as a solider she has always understood the true meaning of duty. In her letters home, she paints a rose-colored version of her life on the front lines, shielding her family from the truth. But war will change Jolene in ways that none of them could have foreseen. When tragedy strikes, Michael must face his darkest fear and fight a battle of his own---for everything that matters to his family. At once a profoundly honest look at modern marriage and a dramatic exploration of the toll war takes on an ordinary American family, Home Front is a story of love, loss, heroism, honor, and ultimately, hope.

Predictable...

A story line that is predictable and boring. I tried to enjoy it, but gave up. I am so tired of buying books and most disappoint.

A very good book. From someone who has no family or close friends in the armed forces, I feel I have a much better understanding. Well written, realistic characters. Very emotional book.

Gripping and relatable

It was an excellent read. I am currently studying counselling Psychology and could see that the author truly put alot of effort into explaining and bringing to life what PTSD truly looks like and how one can approach a person with this issue. This is my first book by this author and I must say I am impressed and will continue reading her books.

This was an amazing book, I couldn't put it down. It was very emotional. It was easy to relate to as I am a mother and I can't imagine having to deal with the tribulations Jolene has to over come besides the hectic everyday life that every couple juggles with family and career. Love this book and would read it again. Looking forward to reading more Kristen Hannah books!

War from a totally perspective. How it affects all members of a family. Does not focus on the blood and gore, but on the human emotions of the spouses and family members involved. I had a hard time putting the book down until the last page. I found it a book with a few twists that were totally unexpected.
