Professional Reviews

Smiles and Tears
"The smile on my face breaks through the tears in my eyes as I read reminders of a time in my life I will never forget."
--Sheri Jo Jessup, Marine Wife and Former Marine Corporal


Surrounds the Heart with Memories
"It surrounds the heart with memories; it captures the heart and soul of an old soldier. In a silent whisper it says, 'Yes,' we have taken that journey."
--LTC and Mrs. Frank Saunders, U.S. Army Retired


Strength and Beauty
"By opening her heart through poetry, Margaret Roberts has revealed a strength that is in the heart of every true military wife. Her words have captured the essence of the trials and triumphs of our modern warrior families. Be careful when you pick up Desert Flowers because you won't want to put it down!"
-- Joe Robinson, Captain (Retired), Orlando Police Department and Father of a U.S. Marine
