    1. Loved these stories :) Being a military wife myself I could definitely relate to the joys and struggles highlighted in this book. The stories are fiction but they sure did feel real to me had me reaching for my Kleenex several times!

    2. As is so often the case I received this book from the author in exchange for a review. Despite that immense kindness I give my candid thoughts below.The book is a collection of easily digested vignettes featuring, unsurprisingly, the wives of those who serve our country every single day. Topics range from the joys of birth to the tragedy of death. Pretty much exactly what you would expect given the title.On the positive side, the book certainly does tug at your heartstrings. Though fictional, I [...]

    3. I Won this book through a Giveaway and I very much thankful for the author for this book. Reading this book has been eye opening in a lot of ways and the author has a done a fantastical job of putting emotions into a theme and stories like this.

The stories in itself is very different with everyo [...]

    4. "One of the Most Remarkable, Heart Touching Novels"I am so very thankful to have the opportunity the read this wonderful story by Terry L. Rollins. She has compiled several short stories about military wives. It's fiction, but these stories do reflect the actual joys and sorrows of wives who also help serve their country. The first story of Tracy's is when she is eight and one-half months pregnant with her fourth child. Her typical one-day of getting ready for a dinner party, cleaning house, pla [...]

    5. I got this book free from the author. This is my honest review.This very revealing book tells about the wives of our military men, covering different situations from one real woman's point of view for each situation. Some seem not all that different from wives of other busy traveling men, with subtle differences--1) pregnancy and birth while your husband is deployed, 2)husbands who get hurt or killed in difficult situations because of the constant danger of their jobs, 3) the difficult role of a [...]

    6. I have a great deal of admiration and respect for members of the military. Admittedly, I know very little about their lives, the lives of their families, and, in general, what military life is truly like. Therefore, when I received a copy of Terry L. Rollins’ Married to the Military, I dove into it with excitement, hoping for a glimpse into the lives of those selfless people (both military members and those that support them) who dedicate themselves to our country. I was not disappointed. In M [...]

I received this book directly from the author in exchange for an honest review.First let me say this is not the type of book I normally read, but I'm a big supporter of the military and I liked the idea of getting inside the head of the military wife. Second, it wasn't until AFTER I read this book that I started reading the reviews (I glanced at the description, but it didn't sink in that these were fiction) that I realized they were fictional, but despite the shock value of that revelation, I'm [...]

    8. The pleasures and travails of military families.I was married to a retired military man after he was discharged, but I had the opportunity to visit with military wives of WWII Vets and after living in Germany after the war, how difficult it was for them to get back to US because they went with the children without their husbands, often on a big ship and with three or four children, they were exhausting times. But they were not officers’ wives.The author of this book was a military wife to a U. [...]

    10. They say that you can’t judge a book by its cover. That is not true of MARRIED TO THE MILITARY by Terry L. Rollins. It is a beautiful book with a beautiful cover.

    11. This is a collection of fictional short stories. But they read more like memoir or essay. In fact, if I hadn’t been told in the description that the stories were fictional I might have assumed this was a collection from real-world women.When I think of fiction, I think of active drama in the form of “show don’t tell.’ But in this collection, written as they were in a more memoir or essay style, it was pretty much all ‘tell’… as in telling the reader what they went through.For whate [...]

    13. This is a wonderful book, sent to me by Miss Terry Rollins across the miles. All the stories in this book made me cry. Gut-wrenching, heart-warming, moving, riveting.

My eyes grew tired of shedding tears in the end, but my heart was overwhelmed and filled with lessons about the military life. I am not a military wife, but I could very much relate to the women married to men in unifo [...]
