The War at Home: A Wife's Search for Peace (and Other Missions Impossible)
Bargain Book Copy
A portrait of the strains of a military marriage and meditation on what it means to be left behind - a brave account of the challenges facing the wife of a Naval fighter pilot.
When she fell in love with her brother’s best friend, Rachel Starnes had no idea she was about to repeat a painful family pattern - marrying a man who leaves regularly and for long stretches to work a dangerous job far from home. Through constant relocations, separations, and the crippling doubts of early parenthood, Starnes effortlessly weaves together strands from her past with the relentless pace of Navy life in a time of war. Searingly honest and emotionally unflinching - and at times laugh out loud funny - Starnes eloquently evokes the challenges she faces in trying to find and claim a sense of home while struggling to chart a new path and avoid passing on the same legacy to her two young sons.
At once a portrait of the devastating strains that military life puts on families and a meditation on what it means to be left behind, The War at Home is a brave portrait of a modern military family and the realities of separation, endurance, and love that overcomes.
