"With candour and honesty, Danielle Daniel shares her painful journey as she discovers that marrying a solider means she also married the military, and that she is outranked at every turn. Her struggle to "soldier on", made only harder by the tragedy of her husband's accident, is heartbreaking, yet her determination--and ultimately, her transformation--is inspiring." -Shannon Moroney, author, Through the Glass (National Bestseller) "The playing with time and story, the giving and withholding of detail, is stunningly accomplished, which is only underlined by the book's incredible, miraculous and beautiful ending, which is also its beginning, a fantastic, complicated and beautiful love story..." - Kerry Clare, blogger, book reviewer, author, Mitzi Bytes
