Summary
Dan Riley is a major in the British Army. After a tour of duty in Afghanistan, he is coming home to the wife and young daughters he adores. The outside world sees these reunions as a taste of heaven after months of hell. But are they? How does a man who's trained to fight adjust to family and domestic life? And how does the family cope if he can't? How much can Dan's wife, Alexa, sacrifice her own needs to support his commitment to a way of life that demands everything, not just of him, but of her and the children as well? What happens when love and vocation collide head on? Joanna Trollope returns with a new, deeply moving novel about a soldier's return to family life and the emotional cost of war, duty, and honour. With her trademark intelligence and kind, clear-eyed insight, she shows us a family striving to balance duty and ambition with intimacy and understanding as she illuminates an experience shared by millions of people
