All marriages have a breaking point. All families have wounds. All wars have a cost . . .

Like many couples, Michael and Jolene Zarkades have to face the pressures of everyday life—children, careers, bills, chores—even as their twelve-year marriage is falling apart. Then a deployment sends Jolene deep into harm's way and leaves defense attorney Michael at home, unaccustomed to being a single parent to their two girls. As a mother, it agonizes Jolene to leave her family, but as a solider, she has always understood the true meaning of duty. In her letters home, she paints a rose-colored version of her life on the front lines, shielding her family from the truth. But war will change Jolene in ways that none of them could have foreseen. When tragedy strikes, Michael must face his darkest fear and fight a battle of his own—for everything that matters to his family.

At once a profoundly honest look at modern marriage and a dramatic exploration of the toll war takes on an ordinary American family, Home Front is a story of love, loss, heroism, honor, and ultimately, hope.

Praise for Home Front

"Home Front is Hannah's crowning achievement."The Huffington Post

“Readers of Home Front may not know what it's like to have a loved one in the military, but they can likely relate to the idea of a relationship in trouble and the challenges of juggling career with family.”—Associated Press

Home Front's heart-wrenching portrayal of one veteran's trials points out how much training goes into preparing for war—and how little is done to teach returning soldiers how to be parents again.”People

“Complex, captivating characters. A timely, dynamic plot. Gorgeous prose. Kristin Hannah's Home Front is a deeply emotional must-read you won't soon forget.”USA Today

“This new offering after a string of best-sellers is sure to garner a lot of attention, not only because of Hannah's track record with readers but also because of its heartrending and timely subject matter.”Booklist

"Hannah has written a remarkable tale of duty, love, strength, and hope that is at times poignant and always thoroughly captivating and relevant."Library Journal (starred review)
