Biank tells the story of four typical Army wives who, in a flash, find themselves in extraordinary circumstances that ultimately force them to redefine who they are as women and wives. This is a true story about what happens when real life collides with Army convention.
Army Wives is a groundbreaking narrative that takes the listener beyond the Army's gates, taking a close look at the other woman - the Army itself - and how its traditions, rules, and wartime realities deeply impact marriage and home life.

"Army Wives captivates readers with an up-close and personal look into the â¿¿real' everyday lives and challenges of Army spouses." (Victoria M. Parham, host of Military Spouse Talk Radio)
"Tanya Biank's experience as a reporter has produced a candid and detailed study of her subjects and a riveting story, certain to engage Army wives of all generations." (Joanne Patton, wife of Major General George S. Patton and daughter-in-law of General George S. Patton, Jr.)
Don't expect it to be like the TV show. Though I love the show and the characters are loosely based on the book, they are very different. It is the real life story of 4 wives and their families. It is sad, sweet, funny and real. It gives people an insight into our world, the world of military families.
It was alright, I wouldn't return it but I wouldn't give it a second listen either. I mostly likely would get another book from the author or the reader.
The story jumped around and didn't really have a good flow to it.
Just not my cup of tea.
Didn't really spark a reaction.
Great subject matter, just wasn't what I expected.
