Publisher's Summary

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.

    "Amazing and heartbreaking at The same times"
    Any additional comments?

    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.

    "Great story!"

    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.

    "This book really makes you think"
    If you could sum up Home Front in three words, what would they be?

    Very inspiring book


    What other book might you compare Home Front to and why?

    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.


    Which character – as performed by Maggi-Meg Reed – was your favorite?

    The grandmother

    "Good story...learned a lot."

    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.

    "good listen."

    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.

    "Worst narration ever"

    I listen to at least one audiobook a week. I have NEVER been as annoyed by one as I was by this one. Her voices for the children were unbearable.

    "A must read for all people living in America."

    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.

    "Exasperating and melodramatic"

    Narration overwrought and soupy.
    Character development is one thing but going on and on is another.
