The blockbuster best-selling author of Night Road and Firefly Lane delivers a masterful novel that explores the sacrifices of one American family and illuminates the true cost of honor, duty, and love.
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. An intimate look at the inner landscape of a disintegrating marriage and a dramatic exploration of the price of war on a single American family, Kristin Hannah's Home Front is a provocative and timely portrait of hope, honor, loss, forgiveness, and the elusive nature of love.

This was such a wonderful and heartbreaking book to listen to at the same time. I thought the narrator did a fine job, but it was the book that touched me so deeply. Have told all my friends that this book is a keeper.
This was a wonderfully written story that I found very interesting, since I have no military history in my family. It felt true and honest. I highly recommend for anyone wanting to know and understand a little more fully the sacrifice of our solders. The narrator did a great job---read with lots of emotion.
Very inspiring book
Nightingale was also a great book. Brings you into the families that are feeling the pain of war and the loss of life as they know it.
I loved Home Front! The story kept me captivated the entire time & Maggi-Meg Reed did an amazing job narrating. Thank you Kristin Hannah & Maggi-Meg Reed! I highly recommend Home Front!
Great story but the narration was so down....depressing...I mean it is a sad and emotional story but it was hard to continue at times.
I really liked it. It really gives you an inside perspective of how it feels to go to war and leave your family behind. Also gives you a very good understanding of ptsd and how hard coming home from war is.
the narration was amazing. The emotions relayed by the narrator had me crying several times throughout this book.
I highly recommend this book. A great story that that ties the impact of war on people's life. Everyone in America needs to understand and be thankful for the sacrifices these soldiers make. As a nation, we spent too much time on the unimportant, only to forget what makes us free.
