Publisher's Summary

Army Wives goes beyond the sound bites and photo ops of military life to bring listeners into the hearts and homes of today's military wives.

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.

    "True life, not the TV Show"

    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"
    Would you try another book from Tanya Biank and/or Laural Merlington?

    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.


    What was most disappointing about Tanya Biank’s story?

    The story jumped around and didn't really have a good flow to it.


    What didn’t you like about Laural Merlington’s performance?

    Just not my cup of tea.


    What reaction did this book spark in you? Anger, sadness, disappointment?

    Didn't really spark a reaction.


    Any additional comments?

    Great subject matter, just wasn't what I expected.
