March is Women’s History Month — a very appropriate time to offer my novel MRS. LIEUTENANT for free on Kindle.
The story is inspired by my own experiences as a new Mrs. Lieutenant in the spring of 1970 right after the Kent State shootings. I experienced friendship with women whom I never would have come in contact with had my husband not gone on active duty at Ft. Knox with the U.S. Army.
This particular time was a very interesting slice of women’s social history, right at the beginning of the women’s liberation movement. But for those of us who were new Mrs. Lieutenants, we had very specific expectations to be met.
Here is a quote from the “Mrs. Lieutenant” booklet we had to follow:
It has been said that when a man acquires a commission, the government has gained not one, but two — the officer and his wife.
Another piece of advice from the same booklet:
If the wife is well informed as to what is expected of her, the probability is greater that the officer will have an easier and more successful career.
MRS. LIEUTENANT was selected as a 2008 Amazon Breakthrough Novel Award semifinalist. I hope you will click here to download a copy and enjoy the story.
