The Soldier's Wife

ebook

Dan Riley is a major in the British Army. After a six-month tour of duty in Afghanistan, he is coming home to the wife and young daughters he adores. The outside world sees these reunions as a taste of heaven after months of hell.

But are they? Can a man trained to fight adjust again to family and domestic life? And how will the family cope, if he can't? How much, indeed, can Alexa, Dan's wife, sacrifice her own needs to serve his commitment to a way of life that demands everything not just of him but of her and the children as well?

This novel takes a keen look at the lives of modern military families. With her trademark intelligence, empathy and clear-eyed insight, Joanna Trollope shows us a family striving to balance duty and ambition with intimacy and understanding.
