Like many couples, Michael and Jolene Zarkades have to face the pressures of everyday lifechildren, careers, bills, choreseven as their twelve-year marriage is falling apart. Then a deployment sends Jolene deep into harm's way and leaves defense attorney Michael at home, unaccustomed to being a single parent to their two girls. As a mother, it agonizes Jolene to leave her family, but as a solider, she has always understood the true meaning of duty. In her letters home, she paints a rose-colored version of her life on the front lines, shielding her family from the truth. But war will change Jolene in ways that none of them could have foreseen. When tragedy strikes, Michael must face his darkest fear and fight a battle of his ownfor everything that matters to his family.

I chose this book because Kristen Hannah blew my freaking MIND in The Nightingale. That book had me crying and laughing and swooning and just made my life.
Home Front was so completely different, I don't even believe that it's the same author. It was SO predictable...and that's coming from someone who loves Dan Brown. There was lots of dead-horse-beating and a very unrealistic stigma throughout the whole book. I KNOW I can't speak for everyone, but I refuse to believe that in this day and age, a child would be ashamed of their mother in the military. Not a spoiler, just a very common thread of the book and I was totally over it after it was mentioned the first ten times. I think the story had potential, and I will not lie - I did cry. It struck some heartstrings in there but by no means was I knocked off my feet like in The Nightingale.
The story wasn't awful, but I genuinely would not recommend. It will work for some people and it will really resonate with some people, but in general, as a 25 year old female who's partner is an OIF veteran, I just couldn't get on board with some of the characters' ignorance and it just felt really forced. I really just finished it because I have a hard time abandoning half-read books - which I'm glad I did because the ending is not disappointing.
So far Kristin Hannah is 50:50 with me and eventually I'll try another book and hopefully love it as much as The Nightingale!!!

It's been a while since I started reading a book I just did not want to put down. The last was probably The Nightingale. The story sucked me in, and I just wanted to read until the last page. I felt very important issues were touched on in this book. That said, I cannot believe I liked a book so much and at the same time, disliked so many characters. The husband was a jerk through more than half of the book. The (almost) teenage daughter was a total brat. And the main character was very unrealistic in her life views for half the book. But.....I suppose those elements are what made the story so good.
A few things bothered me....I would love to know the answers to all these, not that I ever will.
First, what did they do with the kids once weekend a month and 2 weeks each summer? The kids and husband acted like the mom never spent 5 minutes away from any of them.
Secondly, when she started drinking wine every day, why didn't the husband just get rid of it all? It's not like she was going to get to the store to buy more!
And third, why did it take so long for the husband to get her the help that she needed? You don't have to be Freud to know she needed help badly.

I would definitely recommend this book to friends.

Wow. This book just blew me away. As a mother and former soldier in the Army Reserve, married to an Infantry solider who deployed to Afghanistan, this story hit close to home. The passion for the job, the bonds you make with your fellow soldiers, the sacrifices, the pre-deployment emotions, the heartbreaks, the reality of homecoming....Hannah did an incredible job conveying all the ups and downs in a Military family. It felt so REAL. We were also both stationed at Ft. Lewis in Washington so I knew the setting of the book exactly and it felt real and believable. The author did an amazing job with her research for this book, I really enjoyed the author's notes and interview with a female black hawk pilot at the back of the book.

I also spent some time working with wounded Veterans at Walter Reed and Hannah's description of recovery and PTSD was heartbreakingly accurate. We have Veteran friends dealing with many different kinds of injuries, some physical, some mental, and we've even lost friends to Veteran suicide. This is such an important story for the American people to know and understand and Hannah does a beautiful job conveying this without over-doing it. However, I would like to add that Jo would have had more support from the Army (doctors, physical therapy, psychiatrists, psychologists) after coming home.

I loved that this story was from a female soldier's perspective. Many women have fought and died in combat even though they were not (during the time this book was written) allowed in combat positions. Being a female soldier in an Army of men can be tough, and I do wish Hannah had developed this issue a little bit more. The use of "Fly girl" and "Soldier girl" didn't sit well with me. They both seemed a bit overused and too dramatic for my taste.

Overall I absolutely loved this book and have not stopped thinking about it. I have only cried reading 2 books in my life and they both happen to be by Kristin Hannah: this one and The Nightingale. She manages to convey real human emotion so well, I only hope that the scheduled movies for these two books can do the same!

I was excited to read this book following Nightinangle by the same author. Especially since I am married to a career soldier who served 30+ years. I have been around everything you can imagine to include watching our wounded soldiers come from the battle field in Landstuhl Germany. We have friends missing both hands and legs, parts of an arm or even part of their face. We know many who truly have PTSD and battle it daily. This book left me saying this is complete BS and half way through I struggled to even want to finish. And through all my years of life within the military I have never seen anyone have this lack of support for their soldier. Ms Hannah has no military experiences and sought help from people who served but I am surprised they could have led her to this direction of what military life is like. Through the entire book I kept saying to myself....this author is completely writing out of her knowledge and experience and there is a clear disconnect. And it is clear she has agenda to bash military life and not paint it in the positive that it can be. I do not plan to recommend this book nor share my book. It is going into the trash.
