Descripción del producto
"'Movingly written and plotted with the heartless skill of Greek tragedy. You'll keep turning the pages until the last racking sob' Wendy Holden, Daily Mail 'A gripping tale of family love, grief and forgiveness' Sunday Express 'A guilty pleasure' Daily Express 'A moving coming-of-age story' " --Heat
'as a war novel it was a real page-turner and I was hooked by the story until the very end' --Rear Party website, where it scored 4 wine glasses
'An unusual premise, with Mum going to war as an army reserve whilst dad has to stay home and keep things together. Interesting characters and the very real depiction of "life must go on" as tragedy strikes and everyone comes to terms with what's going on. Brilliant dialogue makes this a compulsive read.' --Books Monthly
"A good book which is very sad in places, it really shows you how war can change a family.
Well worth a read!" --4 out of 5 on Whatsgoodtodo.com
Reseña del editor
From a distance, Michael and Jolen Zarkades seem to have it all: a solid dependable marriage, exciting careers and children they adore. But after twelve blissful years together, the couple has lost their way. They are unhappy and edging towards divorce. Then an unexpected deployment tears their already fragile family apart, sending one of them deep into harm's way and leaving the other at home, caring for the children and waiting for news. When the worst happens, each must face their darkest fear and fight for the future of their family. An intimate look at the inner landscape of a disintegrating marriage and a dramatic exploration of the price of war. Kristin Hannah's Home Front is a provocative and timely portrait of hope, honour, loss, forgiveness - and the elusive nature of love.Ver Descripción del producto

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!!!
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.
