    From a distance, Michael and Joleen Zarkades seem to have it all: a solid marriage, two exciting careers, and children they adore. But after twelve years together, the couple has lost their way; they are unhappy and edging toward divorce. Then the Iraq war starts. An unexpected deployment will tear their already fragile family apart, sending one of them deep into harm’s way and leaving the other at home, waiting for news. When the worst happens, each must face their darkest fear and fight for the future of their family.

    Story

    I wanted to like this book, but I didn't. I have listened to other Kristin Hannah novels before and enjoyed them. I almost "quit" a few times but I had made an investment. I didn't care for any of the characters. The main character was out of touch with reality and her "I have to be perfect" attitude drove me crazy. Her children did not act their ages. The 12 year old was beyond obnoxious and totally self centered. All the youngest child did was whine.

    The narration really is was ruined it for me. A good narrator allows me to interpret the writing. Ms. Reed tried to force emotions down my throat. Too melodramatic. The childrens' voices were terrible, so over done and loud.

    I will try Kristin Hannah again, but I will avoid Maggi-Meg Reed, the narrator.
