Description

"Buy it. Read it. Have lots of Kleenex on hand. Scott's stories are always powerful and emotional but they're honest, she doesn't jerk you around or manipulate you. The power of the stories and of the characters emotions gets into you and sweeps you away." - Bea's Book Nook

Meet the lovable smart ass who can always crack a joke and the woman who loves him more than life itself.

Vic Carponti always has a joke -- no matter how bleak the situation might be. He's the guy who can make jokes in the middle of a firefight in Baghdad or when he's getting sewn back up after getting blown up. But his sense of humor hides a fierce loyalty to the men he serves with and a devotion to his wife who he loves more than life itself. But there's nothing funny about war...

But as he prepares to leave on his latest deployment into the violent throes of the Surge in Iraq, his jokes don't seem as funny to his wife. Nicole forces herself to laugh at his redeployment antics but behind her laughter hides the darkest fear of every Army wife -- that the knock on the door may be the news that destroys her world.

They both try to make the best of the deployment but when the phone doesn't ring for a few days, Nicole starts to worry. And when the dreaded call comes telling her he's been hurt, she'll move heaven and earth to be there when her husband wakes up.

"I won't spoil it, but it will give you hope, laughter and tears!" Romancing Rakes

"One of the things I love so much about the Coming Home series from Jessica Scott are the characters themselves. They are unflinchingly real, raw and flawed people - ordinary folk dealing with extraordinary circumstances in the only way they know how to." - My Written Romance
