She held a weapon given to her by a stranger to end her own life. Except the stranger was her husband, a former war hero of Operation Iraqi Freedom who had somehow lost himself to an illness she did not understand. How would she carry on? Would she survive?
The War That Came Home is one spouse’s journey to face the lingering effects of war. Facing many obstacles as the battles escalate throughout her harrowing account, author Andrea Carlile walks toward an uncertain future while recollecting a colorful past. Through her tale, she represents the battered woman, the veteran’s spouse, and the wife and mother in marriage. Each is vividly brought to life as she engages in the war that enters her home. Through her discovery, she finds her heavenly Father and the hope to overcome her own hell.
Her story is an example to any who need the inspiration to face their own personal battles with the wars faced in life—to the battered, the broken, the veteran, and the spouse. Take the journey and discover your own feelings of hope and strength.
This story of Andrea and Wes Carlile will be featured in the documentary When War Comes Home, by the Emmy award winning producer and director, Michael W. King.
