Frankie Byrne Tennyson stunned everyone when she decided to enlist in the U.S. Marine Corps. Now-after bravely serving her country in Iraq-she's finally come home. Home to a husband whose lingering feelings of abandonment make her wonder if their lives can ever be the same. Home to a daughter whose painful encounters with bullies can only be healed by a mother's love. And home to a father who still can't accept his daughter's decision to serve in spite of his own stellar career as a brigadier general. But the most difficult part about coming home lies within Frankie herself. To save everything she holds dear, she must face the toughest battle of her life . . .

A moving portrait of a modern American family, WHEN SHE CAME HOME reminds us that some things-honor, acceptance, and, above all, love-are truly worth fighting for.

I enjoyed how this examined not only the impact of war on someone who is trying to reintegrate into their life, but also how it is viewed because it was a woman who went to war and left her family "behind." Throwing in the extra stuff didn't really add much value to the overall story line (private contractors shooting inappropriately in war action), and would have been fine without that piece in the whole story. Seems like it was added to simply make a neater, cleaner way to have the father finally accept and support the daughter.

This is a very interesting look at life after serving in a war zone, especially from a female perspective. So many lives changed, what must life be for the people who live in a war torn country without therapists and a secure neighbourhood to come home to?
