Editor Reviews
From the Back Cover Army Wives goes beyond the sound bites and photo ops of military life to bring readers into the hearts and homes of today's military wives. Biank tells the story of four typical Army wives who, in a flash, find themselves in extraordinary circumstances that ultimately force them to redefine who they are as women and wives. This is a true story about what happened when real life collided with army convention. Army Wives is a groundbreaking narrative that takes the reader beyond the Army's gates, taking a close look at the other woman--the Army itself--and how its traditions, rules and war-time realities deeply impact marriage and home life. Tanya Biank has written a stunningly detailed, eye-opening account of what it is really like to be an Army wife. Army Wives demonstrates that while it is tough to be a soldier, it can be even tougher to be the wife of a soldier. Army Wives should be required reading for every military spouse and all those who are considering marrying into the military. -- Ron Martz, Military affairs correspondent, Atlanta Journal-Constitution and co-author of Heavy Metal: A Tank Company's Battle to Baghdad Tanya Biank's experience as a reporter has produced a candid and detailed study of her subjects and a riveting story, certain to engage Army wives of all generations. The incidents described and the issues surfaced in Ms. Biank's hard-hitting piece surely will get her readers' attentions and will cause us to say to each other, 'Now, what can we do about it?' --Joanne Patton, the wife of Major General George S. Patton and the daughter-in-law of General George S. Patton, Jr. Army Wives captivates readers with an up close and personal look into the 'real' everyday lives and challenges of Army spouses. Kudos to Ms. Biank for portraying each spouse's story with such heartfelt compassion . --Victoria M. Parham, Host of Military Spouse Talk Radio Tanya Biank is a Fulbright scholar, an award-winning journalist, a former reporter for the Fayetteville Observer , a monthly columnist for www.military.com and a contributing writer for Military Spouse Magazine . Mark Gordon Productions and Touchstone TV have developed a pilot for a one hour TV series based on the book. The daughter of a career Army officer, Tanya lives in Virginia, with her husband, an Army officer assigned to the Pentagon.
