I received this book for free as a good reads first read.

This is such an easy read, I think everyone should read it! These short stories illustrate the pain and heartache caused by a soldier being deployed. I was a bit dissapointed that there wasn't a story about a wife going to war, however, the author did address that issue at the end of the book.

An elegantly written short story collection, with a unique setting (at least, I don't know of any other story collections set on a military base). I wasn't totally blown away, but on the other hand there are a couple of stories that will stay with me for a while--particularly the slightly creepy "You Survived the War, Now Survive the Homecoming" and the poignant "Inside the Break." Definitely worth picking up if you are a fan of short stories. ( )

This is an absolutely amazing short story collection. As a spouse who has dealt with two deployments and multitudes of other times when the guys are "away", I could identify with this book. I have suggested it to my Army-wife friends.

It is not a feel-good, we are all happy-happy Army wives book. It is brutal in some parts, hope-filled in others, and everywhere it is honest. ( )

It's a good series of short stories. The life of a soldier is hard and not knowing what's going on at home has to be just as difficult. The same can be said of the spouse and kids left behind--the limited amount of information given by the military, the short telephone calls or sporadic emails, and not knowing what to believe about the news sources. It's not easy for anyone on either side.

The writing is good. Unfortunately, I felt no connection and I think it's because I've never been an army spouse or a member of the service. The situations are sad but so very realistic.

"In an accomplished debut story collection, Fallon lays bare the lonely lives of military families when the men go to war. In these eight loosely connected tales, the families of Fort Hood, Texas, wait for their men to come home. That waiting, filled with anxiety, boredom and sometimes resentment, creates a Godot-like existence, in which real life begins only when a soldier’s deployment ends... Fallon reveals the mostly hidden world of life on base for military families, and offers a powerful, unsentimental portrait of America at war. A fresh look at the Iraq war as it plays out on the domestic front."

The crucial role of military wives becomes clear in Fallon's powerful, resonant debut collection, where the women are linked by absence and a pervading fear that they'll become war widows. In the title story, a war bride from Serbia finds she can't cope with the loneliness and her outsider status, and chooses her own way out. The wife in "Inside the Break" realizes that she can't confront her husband's probable infidelity with a female soldier in Iraq; as in other stories, there's a gap between what she can imagine and what she can bear to know. In "Remission," a cancer patient waiting on the results of a crucial test is devastated by the behavior of her teenage daughter, and while the trials of adolescence are universal, this story is particularized by the unique tensions between military parents and children. One of the strongest stories, "You Survived the War, Now Survive the Homecoming," attests to the chasm separating men who can't speak about the atrocities they've experienced and their wives, who've lived with their own terrible burdens. Fallon writes with both grit and grace: her depiction of military life is enlivened by telling details, from the early morning sound of boots stomping down the stairs to the large sign that tallies automobile fatalities of troops returned from Iraq. Significant both as war stories and love stories, this collection certifies Fallon as an indisputable talent. (Jan.) (STARRED REVIEW)
