Wonderful, surprising story that held me through to the end. I can understand why this was made into a movie–lush visuals, powerful conflict and the human struggle all wrapped into one. Full of wonder and surprise and humanity at its best and worst.
Home Front is a stunning, intimate tour of duty in the life of an Army Reservists Jolene and her best friend and neighbor Tami. The story details their struggle to serve their families and their country, while they endure with dignity the costs of their service. The horror and isolation of serving in a war zone feels palpable in this story. The emotional battle in the lives of these soldiers rages on two fronts, the war zone and the home front.
