Realistic dialogue, nice set up of the scene, heart-warming story all the way around. Good job! (and precious tribute to our troops, by the way - thank you!)

Very vivid view of daddy at war because he wants his family to live in peace...showing the sacrifice on both sides...very touching, powerful and well written!

Very realistic dialogue, drew me right into the setting. I was steeling myself for a sad ending so I'm glad I didn't need the Kleenex.

Ah, this touched me more than any I've read so far. My grandson, Ethan, will return from Afghanistan in August, his wife Rachel, just returned from Afghanistan in April. Their two little ones stayed with family here in Arizona for the 3 months their deployments overlapped. God bless our troops and God bless you for touching my heart with this story.
