Wounded Warrior, Wounded Wife
Imagine sending your spouse to war with a heavy heart, then receiving a life-shattering phone call telling you he’s been badly injured. Your beloved returns to your arms, but changed, broken, angry, conflicted, and in need of around-the-clock care. What do you do?
In Wounded Warrior, Wounded Wife, you’ll meet the women who drew upon their inner resiliencies, and prevailed. Each one of these brave, strong military spouses shares her intimate tale of reuniting, recovering, and rebuilding with her catastrophically wounded warrior, revealing the innermost thoughts of women who faced these challenges and prevailed—to not just survive, but thrive.
Readers from all walks of life who face daunting challenges, will learn about a path forward for drawing on their inner resiliencies and, ultimately, prevailing. Barbara McNally reminds all of us that while an individual may go off to war, it is the entire family that truly serves. In Wounded Warrior, Wounded Wife, we are shown the raw emotions and struggles that Veterans and their families must face when the fighting stops but the battle rages on at home.
