Romany Gallo’s first book is a non - fiction piece based on her own life, she describes emotionally and physically her life as a teenager coping with unplanned pregnancy and a military life, the isolation and removal from her friends and family to raise her own.
With a true insight into the routines and regulations that effect not only serving personnel but their dependants Gallo tackles issues that many civilian families would not even consider as being problems.
With the breakdown of one relationship and the rebound into another with disastrous repercussions Gallo is forced to deal with medical and social consequences of her lifestyle.
Gallo reflects on a 'real time' catalogue of events leading up to her husband’s deployments of both Iraq, in 2005, and Afghanistan - only eight months after his return home.
Often funny and sarcastic Gallo’s personality escapes as do her angry outburst which she keeps under lock and key, mostly by writing in her diary. Sadly with little support or education in the relevant subjects, at the time, Gallo and her relationships suffer and her writing will lead you to explore her emotions such as betrayal, rejection, grief, anger, justification, adjustment and finally acceptance.
Leaving her finally to dissect and explore the emotional damage and a she describes the other victims of the war on terror as being 'The Military Family - The Silent Ranks'
