Spouse Calls: Messages From a Military Life
by Terri Barnes
A collection of Terri's best military life columns, Spouse Calls was awarded Gold/First Place in the Midwest Book Awards for Best Current Events/Political Science Book of the Year and was named a finalist for Best Essays in ForeWord Reviews’ INDIEFAB Book of the Year Awards.
Terri’s Stars and Stripes column on which the book is based was also recognized by The National Society of Newspaper Columnists, earning second place in the nation for the best general interest column in a newspaper under 50,000 circulation. NSNC judges commended her for writing “with insight and remarkable sensitivity,” calling her columns “masterful” and “powerful.”
The book Spouse Calls features select essays on a wide range of topics, including motherhood, faith, friendship, family ties, war, current events, sacrifice, PTSD, moving, homecomings, and more. As a wife and mom, Terri highlights important, pivotal moments in her own family’s life as well as others’, in essays that resonate with both military and nonmilitary families.
“Many of the issues military families face are the same ones every American family faces, just in a different setting—a different setting every two or three years, in fact,” says Terri. “Moving colors our lives and complicates our marriages, parenting, and relationships with extended families. Moving and deployment are not military families’ only topics of conversation, but they are the backdrop, the setting, the environment of our lives.”
Through poignant personal stories, incisive interviews, and emotive reflections, Terri creates an historical snapshot of American and world affairs, preserving an important piece of our nation’s culture.
