Sarah Bird authors brilliant, introspective novels of bittersweet reminiscence tempered with humor. The Yokota Officers Club is a tale both courageous and touching—a journey of the heart that speaks volumes of the transient, isolated lifestyle of military families. Having grown up at the Yokota Air Base in Japan, and having moved six times in the last eight years, Bernadette "Bernie" Root and her five siblings are quintessential military brats. It’s 1968, and eighteen-year-old Bernie is returning to the regimented life at Kadena Air Base on Okinawa after her first year away at college. Although her attitudes toward the military have changed, Bernie is beginning to realize the intense bonds she shares with her unusual family. Download and start listening now!

    " I had a hard time getting into it, and it was just not an enjoyable read at all. I will say this: Glad officers spouses I've met are not like the ones in this book. "

    " Bird's novel gave me insight into what "military brats" go through and the culture of the Air Force, post-WW2 (though I'm not sure it's changed much).
