Book Review: The Yellow Birds
I also wanted to choose this book because my book club is made up of military spouses in my husband's group. I wanted to see how they reacted to it, being wives of soldiers. I got some mixed reactions. Some really like it, some found it hard to read. Everyone appreciated it, and we all were affected by it somehow. In our husband's career field, they are lucky to not be on the front-lines, the way the characters in this book are. But they do deploy and it is a hostile environment and can be scary at times. I do recommend it if you can read this type of topic. It's powerful and really shows you what can happen in war-time situations.
