I think these women who have their husband's at war are very tough. I would not know how to deal if my husband was at war. They are very brave, each side I believe. The men, for fighting for it's country, leaving wife and children behind. The women, for providing for their children both emotionally and physically.

I believe I've heard of this book before. I think I would be very interested in reading it. I think it would be inspiring to read how the family dealt with the husband being away at war. Like Ana said, I cannot imagine dealing with that kind of separation. Not only do the people serving in the armed forces deserve a hand, but so do their families for being able to make that kind of sacrifice in order to keep our freedom.
