A Review: The Wounded Warrior's Wife by Hannah Conway
A moving story, The Wounded Warrior’s Wife depicts a war on two fronts.
The Book, The Wounded Warrior's Wife:
Battles Raging Within Are Those You Must Fight to Win
WHITLEIGH CROMWELL dreamt of a happily ever after with her newlywed soldier husband. COLLIER CROMWELL loved God, his wife, and his country, though military life exacted a demanding toll.
An unexpected deployment during the height of war sends Collier away for yet another year. Their lives tumble down a path marked with struggle, and fatalities. Burdened with unseen emotional wounds and crippled faith, Collier's homecoming only increases their trials.
The angry, defeated hermit at Whitleigh's side barely resembles the loving, faithful hero she married two years earlier. Concerned about possible career repercussions, admitting his need for help proves difficult for Collier and his behavior worsens.
Angry outbursts—and his cold, callous nature—isn't all that provokes Whitleigh to pack her bags. Collier seeks solace for his private suffering in the worst possible place leaving Whitleigh to walk away from shattered pieces of broken trust.
Will Collier seek the healing he desperately needs in time to save their marriage, or is it over? Are there wounds too deep, marriages too broken, and lives so far gone they fall beyond even God's ability to restore?

The Review of The Wounded Warrior's Wife:
“But keep loving him. He needs it.” Layla gave Whitleigh’s elbow a squeeze. “Remember love is an action word, not a feeling.”
As war becomes reality for an Army soldier, it envelopes his wife waiting at home. He pushes and she pulls, and they cope the only way they know how…and drift apart. When his deployment ends, they discover they are little more than strangers. Although he returns to her arms, another battle soon begins, and their love comes under enemy fire. Do they take the easy road—separation, divorce? Or the tough, but healing choice the Lord’s offered to all—forgiveness?
A moving story, The Wounded Warrior’s Wife depicts a war on two fronts. Hannah Conway writes with the grit and courage of a warrior. She depicts the life of a military family…not merely the footsteps…in a real and poignant way. I give this book five stars.
