Baker & Taylor

Perseus Publishing
Raised as an Army brat, Angie Ricketts thought she knew what she was in for when she eloped with Jack—then an infantry lieutenant—on the eve of his deployment to Somalia. Since that time, Jack, now a colonel, has been deployed eight times, serving four tours in Iraq and Afghanistan. And Ricketts, has lived every one of those deployments intimately—distant enough to survive the years spent apart from her husband, but close enough to share a common purpose and a lifestyle they both love.

With humor, candor, and a brazen attitude, Ricketts pulls back the curtain on a subculture many readers know, but few ever will experience. Counter to the dramatized snap shot seen on Lifetime’s Army Wives, Ricketts digs into the personalities and posturing that officers’ wives must survive daily—whether navigating a social event on post, suffering through a husband’s prolonged deployment or reacting to a close friend’s death in combat.

At its core, No Man’s War is a story of sisterhood and survival.

& Taylor

An insider account of domestic military culture by the wife of an army colonel describes her elopement with her then-infantry lieutenant husband, his eight deployments to such regions as Somalia and Afghanistan and her first-hand experience with the unique challenges of officer families.
