I was sent a review copy of The Oceans Between Us by Susan Wiggs and given information about a giveaway that I am excited to share with all of you.
Steve Bennett is a perfect navy officer with a perfect navy family, and he's confident that his world is just the way it should be. But his son wants to be an artist instead of attending the U.S. Naval Academy, and his stalwart and capable wife of 20 years, Grace, is tired of being the perfect navy wife. She wants her own home, and she wants her own career. She's feeling altogether unsettled, but nothing is more unsettling than the secret her husband has hidden from her their entire marriage. Nothing, that is, until the accident on the carrier.

I loved this book and finished it in two days. I read it at every possible moment, on my lunch breaks, during dinner, and I couldn't put it down to go to bed. This book captured what it is like to be a military spouse. Grace has been a Navy wife for 20 years and always put her husband's career and her family first. Now as she is preparing for her children to go to college and her husband to deploy yet again, she starts to wander about her life. Grace want's a home to call her own and to start her own business. These things had been cast aside because of her husband's career. I personally could relate to Grace's struggles. I have only been an Army wife for 2 years but I recognize the conflict between putting your husband and his career first over your own. Is it selfish to have goals and dreams for yourself while being a military spouse.
Grace and her husband both have recognized that their relationship has changed and both had realized that somehow along the way they drifter apart. The problem is figuring out how to get back to the way they were. I also think this is something that many spouses, military and non can relate to. As time passes along with starting a family and watching your kids grow older, how does a married couple sustain a loving and lasting relationship.
Grace and Steve's marriage is changed by the discovery of a secret and an accident aboard a carrier. I couldn't stop reading until I knew what happened between Grace and her husband. I rooted for Grace as she started achieving her own personal goals but yet I wanted Grace and Steve to rekindle their relationship!
I definitely recommend this book to anyone who is looking for a good read. It is fantastic!
