Summary Author Lily Burana writes about love, war, and the realities of military marriage with an honesty few writers would dare. A former exotic dancer who once had a penchant for anarchist politics and purple hair dye, Lily's rebellious past never would have suggested a marriage into the military. But then she met Mike, a Military Intelligence officer, and fell hopelessly in love, resulting in a most unorthodox romance--poignant, passionate, and utterly unpredictable. After Lily and Mike said "I do" in a brief City Hall ceremony, Mike left for Operation Iraqi Freedom, and Lily was left in a strange town to endure his absence alone. When Mike returned with a case of post traumatic stress disorder, Lily suffered from depression so severe it almost ended their marriage. Through it all, she wrangled with her preconceptions and found her place within the uniquely supportive sisterhood of military wives.--From publisher description.
