Review: Diary of a Military Wife by Sharon F. Dixon

Diary of a Military Wife is a brutally honest look at life in the military through the eyes of Page and explores love, family, friendships, marriage difficulties, deceptions, alcoholism, drugs, sex, and sacrifices. Journey with Page and be inspired to dream and hope, and more important, realize if you are in her shoes, you are not alone.

Received from the author for review.

This was formatted, and reads like, a journal which was an interesting change of pace. It was very well written and felt very real but as a white female I found the discussions on racial discrimination (the author is black) rather uncomfortable and perhaps unnecessary.

This one gets three stars. The quality of the writing and frank portrayal of the events bumped it up from three stars. While I didn't particularly connect with the people and the story it was an interesting read full of very real life experiences. The entire book just felt very genuine. It certainly isn't for everyone though.

★★☆☆ = Liked It
