Synopses & Reviews

Synopsis:

The Soldiers Wife examines how three generations of a family struggle with the impact of war on their relationships, long after the tour of duty is over. 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 cant? To what extent can Alexa, Dans wife, sacrifice her own needs and fulfillment to support his commitment to a way of life that demands everything, not just of him, but of her and the children as well? What happens when love and a vocation collide head–on? With her trademark intelligence and kind, clear–eyed insight, Joanna Trollope shows us a family striving to balance duty and ambition with intimacy and understanding.
