Pieces on Earth by Cathy Bryant

Genre: Adult, Christian Fiction
Source: I purchased a copy

I am the mother of a young man who has been deployed twice. The first time he was able to come home a couple of weeks for his second son’s birth. He spent last Christmas deployed. I applaud his wife. She is a very loving wife and someone I admire very much. It takes a lot of love, patience, and trust to be married to a military person.  This is a book I will definitely recommend to my daughter-in law.

I am sure she could definitely identify with Liv, who wanted so much to spend Christmas with her husband. Life is never predictable when a family member is in the military.  Unlike Liv she has always accepted his deployments. I am sure she didn’t like them. I once asked her about how difficult it was for her and she said she entered the marriage understanding what can and does happen when married to someone in the military. She has two young boys she raises by herself and an 11 year old daughter who spends time with her when her husband is deployed.  God has always been a strong part of our life. I was happy to see how Cathy Bryant placed so much emphasis on relying on God.  This is another wonderful story by a wonderful author. It is a must read any time of the year, but especially recommended during the Christmas season.
