About This Book:
Title: Home Front
SynopsisMichael, an attorney, and Jolene, a National Guard helicopter pilot, are going through a rough patch in their marriage when she is deployed to Iraq. Forced to become the primary caregiver for their daughters, Betsy and Lulu, Michael gains a greater appreciation of Jolene's contributions to their family. Called upon in his law practice to defend a veteran with post-traumatic stress disorder who has killed his wife, Michael also begins to understand the challenges Jolene is facing in Iraq. Despite his changed attitude, when Jolene returns home, horribly injured in a helicopter crash that has put a friend and fellow pilot in a coma, their reunion is an uneasy one. With their daughters resentful and their marriage still troubled, the couple must embark on a mission to rediscover trust, love and joy.
Publisher Notes"From a distance, Michael and Joleen Zarkades seem to have it all: a solid marriage, two exciting careers, and children they adore. But after twelve years together, the couple has lost their way; they are unhappy and edging toward divorce. Then the Iraq war starts. An unexpected deployment will tear their already fragile family apart, sending one of them deep into harm's way and leaving the other at home, waiting for news. When the worst happens, each must face their darkest fear and fight for the futureof their family. An intimate look at the inner landscape of a disintegrating marriage and a dramatic exploration of the price of war on a single American family, HOME FRONT is a provocative and timely portrait of hope, honor, loss, forgiveness, and the elusive nature of love"--
