Laugh, cry and rejoice as you experience the "front-line" of military life through the poetic expressions of a Marine's wife.
spending most of her husband's active duty career in the desert of Twentynine Palms, California, author Margaret Roberts developed a respect for the military and a fascination with the desert flowers surrounding her. She eloquently compares those desert flowers with the sometimes harsh survival of the military wife.
Nothing is more delicate or more beautiful than a blanket of desert flowers. Yellow, purple, red, blue and white flowers growing as far as the eye can see. Flowers displaying a beauty that cannot be measured or explained, covering what seems to be dead, dry, infertile soil...
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
