The Military Wife - Spotlight

A Heart of a Hero Novel

Laura Trentham

In award-winning author Laura Trentham’s emotional, heartbreaking and heart mending new novel THE MILITARY WIFE (St. Martin’s Griffin, February 5th 2019, $16.99), a young widow embraces a second chance at life by helping those who understand the sacrifices made by American soldiers and their families. Written with Brandon Webb, a former Navy Seal, Trentham provides an authentic look into post-military life.
Harper Lee Wilcox has been marking time in her hometown of Kitty Hawk, North Carolina since her husband Noah Wilcox’s death nearly five years ago, while serving as a Navy SEAL. With her son Ben turning five and living at home with her mother, Harper fights a growing restlessness, worried that moving on means leaving the memory of her husband behind.
Her best friend, Allison Teague, is dealing with struggles of her own. Her husband, a former SEAL who served with Noah, was injured while deployed and has come home physically healed but fighting PTSD. With three children under foot and unable to help her husband, Allison is at her wit’s end.
In an effort to reenergize her own life, Harper sees an opportunity to help not only Allison, but a network of other military wives, who are eager to support her idea of starting a string of coffee houses close to military bases around the country.
In her pursuit of her dream, Harper crosses paths with Bennett Caldwell, Noah’s best friend and SEAL brother. As her business grows, so does an unexpected relationship with Bennett. A man who has a promise to keep, entangling their lives in ways neither of them can foresee. Can Harper let go of her grief and build a future with Bennett even as the man they both loved haunts their pasts?
