Soldier’s Wife provides insight into the often-overlooked life of the women standing behind service men. Historically, military wives have made contributions and sacrifices that were critical to their husband’s success, and Lucy was no exception. As a patriotic American woman, her pivotal role was just as important as the soldiers who were actively serving in the United States armed forces. Lucy was born in the midst of the Great Depression and grew up during World War II, she never allowed herself to be bogged down by poverty. Rickey Butch Walker has provided highlights poignant accounts of Lucy's tumultuous and often painful journey from the cotton fields of North Alabama to some of the most politically turbulent places in the world during the Cold War. Lucy lived the chaos of the Soviet Communists building the Berlin Wall and narrowly escaped the terror of a life-threatening incident at the beginning of a revolution in Tripoli, Libya. The compelling narrative of the courage that she displayed in the face of adversity and in a near-death experience commands attention.
