The widow of “American Sniper” Chris Kyle shares their private journey, a moving and universal chronicle of love, family, service, patriotism, grief, sacrifice, faith, and purpose.

How does someone carry on after the death of a hero? By becoming a hero herself.

Though Chris and Taya Kyle’s marriage had its difficult moments, it was always a love story. Together they’d endured military service, a bestselling book, unexpected fame, and a film deal starring a hot Hollywood actor. But just when Taya thought that she and Chris were finally going to live their dream together, her husband was murdered. In the wake of his death, a grieving Taya was left to raise her two young children and handle the many things Chris left behind: the business, the book, the movie, and a myriad of legal issues.

Matching the straightforward, soul-baring style of American Sniper, Taya speaks with honesty about the trials and triumphs of her life with and without Chris—the sleepless nights as a military spouse, the exhilaration as her husband was lionized, the quiet moments when family sheltered them from the madness of fame, and the joy of discovering her own purpose in harmony with Chris’ own legacy. In American Wife, she recounts her struggles and looks toward the future, revealing the intimate story of her marriage and the inspirations that have given her strength. She speaks out on the effects of fame, both good and bad, and provides a road map for others faced with difficulties big and small. American Wife is a startling and affecting portrait of a woman of grit and determination—an example we can all follow to become a hero in our own lives.

    " I downloaded this in error thinking it was the book by the same name by Curtis Sittenfeld. I thought I’d give it a go but I’m afraid I couldn’t finish it as, although the subject matter could have been interesting, the writing was about what I might have managed when I last studied English at 16!
