Summary:

The blockbuster bestselling 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.

    I have read four of Kristin Hannah's books now it started with the Nightengale. Her writing just takes me away and puts me right there in the story as if I was a the ghost of Christmas Past/Present/Future watching the characters without them knowing.

    I read all the good reviews and was excited to listen. I had no other books and was on a long drive. I choose to listen to nothing after a few hours of this. All the characters are one dimensional. Just when you think there will be growth . . . nope. The reader has a hard time with the teenager and four year old's voices. So I image the audio version is making their voices grate. I read the reviews on Amazon. Mostly great, but a few military folks chimes in and said how awful the characters were, and made no sense as a military family.
