But that was mostly ok, since I ended up really sitting down and enjoying the book, since I didn't have very long to read it, in order to get this done. Which is really really nice. I read through the whole thing in a few hours, enjoyed every minute of it, and plan to buy the first two books as soon as my book-allowance rolls over. As a note, this appears to be book three, but it's a portal book and you can just jump right in... if you read the other books first, I believe you'll get the full stories for Carol and Jennifer, characters that have cameos in Road to Tomorrow.
The book covers a number of difficult story lines. First, an abusive husband and inevitably all the people in the victim's life who don't believe her. There were times when I was actually flinching by the "You know you should just stay out of his way when he's angry" that she got from her brother. Yowch.
Secondly, it deals with Post Traumatic Stress Disorder, and traumatic brain injuries. I also found the military's reaction to abuse coupled with PTSD to be fairly accurate and again, painful. The military - in my personal experience - wants bad press the way it wants holes in the head. I don't want to use the word conspiracy, but there's a lot of "well, let's just pretend this never happened" pressure on military wives. It makes situations like Andrea's even more difficult than they need to be, since the help that the military is supposed to provide often isn't there.
That being said, I really enjoyed the book, was happy with most of the resolutions, and enjoyed the interactions of Andrea in her new town with her new life. Especially if you love animals, romance, and realistic happy endings, this is the book for you!
