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.

"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.
