This 2008 Amazon Breakthrough Novel Award semifinalist is a story of unexpected women's friendship when their husbands attend Armor Officers Basic at Ft Knox, Kentucky, in the Spring of 1970 right after the Kent State shootings.. 

"Mrs. Lieutenant was a wonderful way for me to connect with what my daughter's going through - congratulations on capturing the intensity of that experience with such great characters!"  -- Bob Niemack, father of a daughter married to a brigade surgeon serving in Iraq and Afghanistan, April 2010

"I first became aware of this novel when it was an Amazon Breakthrough Novel Award semi-finalist. I read it again more recently. As a former columnist for Stars and Stripes in Europe AND an Air Force wife of 30 years, I love Mrs.Lieutenant."  -- Bonnie Latino,  co-author of "Your Gift to Me"

"You realize that not only did you read a good story, but you read one that stays with you on so many levels. When you learn the author herself lived as an officer's wife during this time period, it makes the unfolding story of these four women all the more intriguing." -- Tony Eldridge, author of the novel "The Samson Effect"


More reviews:

"Miller captures the freshness and naiveté of those women, all transplanted to an environment that forced them to deal with new challenges."--Dr. Cathy Goodwin, Top 500 Amazon Reviewer

"I loved MRS. LIEUTENANT. Reading it brought back for me, a military wife, memories of the Vietnam War era, when so many of our young men were in uniform due to the draft, and memories of what it was like being in the sub-culture of the military as a new Army wife." --Mary Raynor
