Band of Sisters!
Annette is such a sweetheart and I love her books!
I also am excited to get to give one of them away to a lucky winner!
When the war on terror calls their husbands to duty, five LDS women are left behind to fight battles of their own: Kim, newlywed and pregnant, frightened of what the future might bring. Brenda, struggling to manage three unruly boys and a crippling bout of depression. Jessie, secretly grappling with mixed feelings about her emotionally abusive husband. Marianne, wrestling with a rebellious teenage daughter. And Nora, the seasoned Army wife with perfect hair, an immaculate home — and an ill-tempered mother dying of cancer.
Knowing the separation of deployment is extremely difficult, Nora gathers the wives every week to share lunches and burdens. In good company, they worry over safety in the field and stability at home and offer one another counsel and comfort. But as their personal crises build, each woman faces the risks of forming deep bonds of trust. And when tragedy strikes, they must confront the painful realities of war that pull families apart and bring friends together as sisters.

working with to help support military families called:
When a friend went through her husband’s deployment, I felt helpless—sure, I could babysit and be listening ear, but what could I do that would make a real difference?
By the time I found the blog called "A Year with Flat Daddy," her husband was home and I’d already written Band of Sisters.
Even so, I followed the blog, learning about one family’s experience with a Flat Daddy—often tearing up as I read the posts. I knew that this was something people could do to help: donate to the Flat Daddy Program so more could become available to families who needed them.
Now I’m working directly with the Flat Daddies director to raise awareness and funds for this very special cause.
