Publisher Description

After years of following her navy officer husband on assignment around the world with their three children, Grace Bennett realizes that she’s left something behind — herself. Steve Bennett can’t understand the unraveling of his wife’s heart. He wants to set things right, but when a secret from his past is revealed just as he’s sent out to sea, their already-strained relationship is pushed to the edge. Now, with plenty of space to ponder the true distance between them, Grace begins to reinvent herself. Just as her new self is coming to terms with her family life, the unthinkable happens. A disaster aboard Steve’s ship shatters Grace’s world and all she can do is gather her children around and wait for news to come, good or bad. A navy wife’s worst nightmare collides with the cold truth that life’s biggest chances can slip away while you’re busy looking for guarantees. With sensitivity and insight, #1 New York Times bestselling author Susan Wiggs explores the emotional rewards and sacrifices of love and marriage in this sweeping novel.

    " I really enjoyed this book. It gives us a glimpse into the world of military families, and the everyday challenges they face, the soldiers & their families. There were a few parts that moved me to tears as well. I've always had respect for our military & this books just helps enforce how brave our men & women serving this country (and their families) really are. "

    " Story about two people married with children about to leave for college. They have been going along without realizing how much their marriage has deteriorated, until something happens which makes them re-evalute all the choices they have made. Similar to Home Front by Kristin Hannah. My favorite book by Susan Wiggs. "
