The life of a military spouse is tough for Heather. The long separations (you mean the military will send him away for how long?), deployments (and he'll be going where?), military housing and the regulations, the rank structure and how it permeates every aspect of their life together... The list goes on and on. Heather had no idea when she married Rick just how much she would be tested, or how their relationship would be stretched. Will they endure, or will they snap? Sacrifice, service, heartache, loneliness, strength, and tears. This is the cost of entry into this unique band of individuals. Not everyone is up to the task. Join Heather and Rick in this first installment of the trilogy as they take this journey together. Meet some of the unique characters and see some interesting places from the amazing, and often overwhelming, perspective of a military spouse.show more

About Cari Schaeffer

Cari has worn numerous hats in her life. She proudly wore the uniform of the United States Air Force, obtained her Bachelor's degree and worked as a critical care RN for almost a decade. She also owned her own Personal Chef and Catering company for six years. After all that, she chose to turn her attention back to her family. Closing her business hasn't made her a couch potato, however. She volunteers at her church, has volunteered her time as a Mentor Mom for two MOPS (Mothers of Preschoolers) groups, started a thriving book club a few years ago (go figure), and also belongs to a monthly lunch club. She also happily entertains people in her home and spends time driving her kids to and from sports practices and games. She not only has a passion for writing, but also for serving. She views writing as a form of service for people from all walks of life. She lives in southern Illinois with her ridiculously patient husband of twenty five years, three children, and her two Chihuahua guard dogs, Snoopy and Stanley McBarker. Hello and Goodbye is her second novel. The Yellow Ribbon Chronicles is her first trilogy. Faith, Hope, Love, and Chocolate was her first novel. Cari can be found at www.carischaeffer.com and also on Facebook.show more
