Book Buzz: Experience-Based Novels Tell Stories of Military Spouses

Mrs. Lieutenant: A Sharon Gold NovelIn honor of Veterans Day, three former military spouses offered their experience-based novels for free on Kindle. Today the books are $2.99 each and still an outstanding value especially when you look at their ratings.
MRS. LIEUTENANT (4.6 stars, 44 reviews, $2.99), written by former Army wife Phyllis Zimbler Miller, tells the story of four very different young women arriving at Ft. Knox, Kentucky, in May 1970 during the Vietnam War right after the Kent State shootings. These women from diverse racial, religious, geographic and class backgrounds must learn to get along with each other while worrying about their husbands being sent to Vietnam.
Your Gift to MeYOUR GIFT TO ME (5.0 stars, 111 reviews, $2.99) by Bonnie Bartel Latino (and Bob Vale) shares the same subtle, but central, theme of the transformative powers of love and laughter found in TOP GUN and STEEL MAGNOLIAS. A former columnist for Stars and Stripes in Europe, Bonnie set the novel primarily in Hawaii and the world of Air Force fighter pilots. The Military Writers Society of America awarded this inspiring, patriotic love story a 2012 Gold Medal Award.
The Final SaluteTHE FINAL SALUTE (4.9 stars, 83 reviews, $2.99) by Kathleen M. Rodgers — In the business of flying fighter jets, the odds of staying alive are often stacked against pilots. Set during the 1991 Gulf War at a fictional Louisiana air base, military spouses learn that war is hell on the home front, too. Some strong language. This realistic portrayal of Air Force pilots achieved Amazon’s #1 Top Rated War Fiction.
