True life, not the TV Show

Don't expect it to be like the TV show. Though I love the show and the characters are loosely based on the book, they are very different. It is the real life story of 4 wives and their families. It is sad, sweet, funny and real. It gives people an insight into our world, the world of military families.

Disappointed

After loving the show, I thought I'd love this. The reader had an old voice and didn't fit the part at all. I stayed confused how she jumped from character to character. I didn't care for this.
I am a huge military supporter but this just didn't do it for me at all.
