Hannah does her research; her imagery, detail and insights into military life are spot-on and incredibly accurate, if not overly detailed. The emotions of the soldier and the soldier’s family is extremely well handled. The story is compelling and the topic all too relevant for the day.
Jo has been in the National Guard since before she married Michael. Her commitment to her country has served her as well; it has given her a family, and a complete zone of expectation and acceptance that she never received in her troubled childhood. Now, shipping out to Iraq, the commitment she feels to her country will test every other relationship in her life: her marriage, her concept of motherhood, her relationship with her children and the sacrifices a soldier chooses to make. (ST. MARTIN’S, Feb., 400 pp., $27.99)
