The soldiers are coming home - after six months in Afghanistan. Surely being reunited with their wives and girlfriends and families will be heaven, after the hell they have been through. When Dan Riley returns to his adored wife, Alexa, and their children, his Army life still comes first. Alexa thought she was prepared to help him, and the whole family, to make the transition to normal life again - but no-one had told her how lonely and near impossible the task would be. Does marrying a soldier always have to mean that you are not marrying a man, but a regiment?

The Soldier's Wife Reviews

Written with all Trollope's customary skill and panache, this is an absorbing look at the modern military wife who no longer automatically follows the drum * Daily Mail *
Nobody understands the snags and frustrations of family life better than Joanna Trollope. She also captures the dangerous pressure points in relationships, the steady build-up of tension, the exact moment when the family fur might really start to fly * Sunday Express *
Trollope is on top form, hitting the zeitgeist with this perceptive and compassionate inside story of an army marriage * Woman & Home *
The Soldier's Wife is a cracking read and has clearly been thoroughly researched. All the little details which animate a novel ring true... compassionate, humourous and topical * Spectator *
Trollope is always immensely readable, managing to depict characters' inner turmoil with deft, artful simplicity. Here, she brings her emotionally acute eye to bear on army life -- Henry Sutton * Daily Mirror *
