Sarah Broadhurst's view...

It is as the title says, a tale of the wives and girlfriends of military personnel today so some of the men, and indeed women, are off to Afghanistan. I believe it is to start a series, I do hope so. This one follows three women with very different attitudes to life. We have Oxford graduate Maddy with a new baby, fun loving Jenna in her desperation to escape her roots marries a soldier and Chrissie running away from her emotions. It’s a lovely read, thought-provoking, informative and very sensitive.

Synopsis

Soldiers' Wives by Fiona Field

This page-turning soap opera interweaves the stories of three women trying to get to grips with military life. Chrissie, orphaned young, finds solace in her career as a medic in the regiment, but will love for a married man prove her undoing? Maddy, a brilliant Oxford graduate, is bogged down with a fretful baby and a super-ambitious officer husband. Will she be able to stand life as a regimental wife? And Jenna - glamorous, bad girl Jenna, who doesn't believe in rules and regulations. Will she destroy her husband's career? Or will it destroy her?
