Interrupted Journeys: A Memoir of an Army Brat

by Barbara Fifield

Book Image Not Available
The Towers family moved on an average of every two years while Barbara's father was in the service. All of these changes created stress in this military family. Barbara and her sister, Marilyn, suffered nightmares every night and their mother began drinking. This memoir portrays the challenges which military families often endure.
"Not another move!" Barbara exclaimed. "We've only been a year." Military families can expect to be relocated every two years, sometimes every year. Constant changes in schools, friends and homes can take a toll on a family. Both the author and her sister, Marilyn, suffered nightmares every night. Their mother started drinking in secret and Barbara's grades at four different elementary schools she attended went down. "Interrupted Journeys: A Memoir of an Army Brat" is based on the author's childhood experiences as a daughter of an army officer. It portrays many challenges which military families endure and would appeal to those who have been members of the service and their families.
