First of all, it was so depressing that I found I had to keep "putting it down."
I couldn't "live" with the women for any length of time.
Book should have included a "balance" between "no potentially happy ending" stories and those of "potential success." (Out of all the stories (18, I believe), only two qualified)
As a teacher of composition, I wanted help the author do some heavy editing. It might have helped if the author had used the 1st person to tell the story---even though the impact on the reader would have been more painful. The author had good intentions, but the writing was poor.
I'm sorry, but I am not recommending the book to friends.
I have tremendous respect and admiration for women who serve in the military. It has to be a very difficult thing to do and has to require physical and mental strength to serve. There are many bad things that happen to the women who serve and there is no excuse for making them suffer these things because they are women. Hopefully one day, women will be treated as first class citizens and can go into any field they want without having to worry about rape, abuse, etc. but I won't hold my breath until that happens.
I'm sure the author has helped women who have read this book to get a more thorough idea of what military life is like for women and if it has helped someone, it has served a good purpose.
