Written by Angela Caban,
As a wife going through my very first deployment, I was on a search for resources to guide me and prepare me for what I was about to endure. When I came across 365 Deployment Days, the title truly caught my eye. I felt like this book title carried the essence of deployment and how this woman would deal with it alone. I read the book in one night so needless to say I was hooked. I knew that even though I had not yet been through half these deployment ordeals, the book helped me to understand that we although given a tough and very important role as military spouse, are also human and are allowed to laugh, cry, scream and on occasion shut ourselves out from others. Learning how to deal with it is how we cope.
365 Deployment Days: A Wife’s Survival Story by Sara Dawalt
I was excited that the book was not a long memoir. Honestly since this was my husband’s first deployment I needed something that got straight to the point. Sara’s book did just that. She explains her situation or problem and she cuts right to the point as to how she dealt with it. The style in which the book was written was comforting to me, it was a countdown towards the end and that excited to continue reading to the next chapter. I wanted to know more about Sara and her life. This book gives us all hope that we can make it through regardless of the situations we may face.
If this is your first deployment or even second, I highly recommend reading this book. This would also be a great gift idea for our family members who truly want to know what it is like to be a military spouse. It will definitely explain a thing or two about our lives!
Sara is a brilliant individual and I am looking forward to read more from her.
