Band of Sisters: Coming Home

For Kim, Nora, Jess and Brenda, the 4 women who have been waiting for their husbands to finally come home from Afghanistan, the last year has gone really slowly. They've been through so much together and individually. Kim has had her baby, she didn't even know she was going to have when her husband left home. Nora has gained her independence and been through some hard times. Brenda has helped the others along. Jess has just been glad to have her husband gone for the last year. And Marianne has been trying to hold it together for her kids since her husband Brian died. Today is the day for the men to come home, the women still have so many plans: more weekly lunches together, Halloween and Christmas parties. And of course, they need to all adjust to having their husbands back in their lives. None of them will really have an easy adjustment, they all know that PTSD is a real possibility for any of their men. They also have to get used to having them back and not being quite so independent or dependent on only each other. But what will the next year bring for these wonderful women?

I loved this book. I really enjoyed the first book, Band of Sisters, so I've been looking forward to reading this one. I wasn't disappointed. The women in this series feel so real, I don't love that they have problems, but I love that their problems seem like real life. I loved the way they all band around each other, no matter what is happening with any of them. I really loved the growth in Kim, to have her go from worrying almost exclusively about herself to receiving and acting on promptings to help those around her. I also loved how Jess grew to realize what her family needed most and was able to act upon that. I was sad to see the book end, I kind of hope for another book, so that some of these wonderful women can get the happy ending they deserve!
