Yes, it is good to be home especially when the surgery went well. Our son-in-law was feeling well yesterday, and we headed home a little after noon. His doctor is talking to him now, I assume, because neither he or my daughter will answer their phones.

Before we left, I finished The Victory Club, by Robin Lee Hatcher. It was a good story about four ladies working at a military base during World War II. There were stories about each woman and her connection with the war. One had a son, one had a sweetheart, one had a husband, and one had no one. Pen, the one with no one was a little selfish. Her husband had fallen and hurt his back. He could not enter the military nor work. It taught us how our lives can change even during distress.

My only problem with the Kindle version was the spelling errors. I can overlook one or two, but several and trying to decide what the correct word was threw me off several times. I can't say too much because I have a book coming out soon and you may find several errors in it.

As far as the book goes, I'd give it a 5 star, but with the spelling, I'd have to give it a 4 star overall. Here's the cover and the blurb.

In times of war, sometimes victory seems like an impossible dream …

In 1943, the women of America banded together to make a life for themselves while their husbands and sons fought overseas. Evan as the men engaged in war, these women faced battles of their own on the homefront.

Margo King: A woman whose past threatens to control her future.
Dottie King: one passionate mistake could destroy her dreams.
Lucy Andersen: Lonely and afraid, she turns to another while her husband is away.
Penny Maxfield: Desperate for a new life, nothing – not even her family – can hold her back.

Margo, Dottie, Lucy, and Penny never expected to face the hardships they must now find a way to conquer. But through the power of Christ, and the power of friendship, perhaps this Victory Club will achieve more than any of them could ever have imagined.
