This collection of linked short stories looks in on the unique community and experience of family life on an army base. A few of the stories are set overseas, but they deal primarily with the soldiers' relationships with those they've left behind and the often troublesome transition back to civilian life. The majority of the stories probe the inherent difficulties of having an absent spouse, with joys and sorrows that feel equally potent and honest.
