Reviews - What do our customers think?
A little cheesy, but a good read.  Oct 20, 2006
This is a wonderful story and was a joy to read, but for my taste, I found it to be a bit cheesy. It was just a little to perfect for the real world. By that I mean it borders on being unbelievable or unrealistic. At times, particularly during family conversations, it reads like a soap opera script, which is a shame because much of the narrative, particularly the depiction of battle scenes and traumatic events, is not only plausible, but at times exceptional!

THE LOVED ONE, by Catherine Palmer and Peggy Stoks is the story of a mother struggling with her only sons' decision to turn down a Yale scholarship to enlist in the military. The mother has spent several years tracing her husbands' family genealogy and through the stories of her sons' ancestors, she discovers more reasons to support his decision than she has reason to oppose it.

Other than being a little much at times, and I hesitate to use "far fetched" because it really isn't that, it's just a writing style that I personally find to be a bit of a stretch at times, this is a wonderful story and certainly serves a purpose. The story exhibits many forms of virtue including commitment, dedication, courage and sacrifice. There is just enough history, which is basically accurate, to attract readers of historical fiction, and the book poses several scenarios of why no one, regardless of social standing, intelligence or family situation should be exempt from serving their country. This book would also be invaluable for anyone having difficulty dealing with having a child in the military.

I hope my review hasn't come off as too harsh, because I truly did enjoy this book and give it a high recommendation. It may not be exactly my style of reading, but it was enjoyable, nonetheless and I'm sure many readers will find it to their liking.
A familiar story for many  May 12, 2006
I was blessed to receive this book as a gift during a deployment which had both my brother and my husband in Iraq at the same time. Although I don't put my own feelings or needs before my husband or brothers duty, I can certainly identify with the fear.
The story gave credibility to the many moms of prospective recruits who may be too afraid to speak thier heart and to those who are bold enough to do so. Even if some of the reviewers found the book or the storyline "boring", the most amazing aspect is that it gives reassurance to the parents who struggle with their son or daughter voluntarily going off to war.
I would recommend this to everyone, even if they don't have a family member serving or considering the military as a career.
If you are a Military Wife/Mother  Jun 29, 2005
If you are a Military Wife/Mother who is struggling with the fact that your loved one is going to war then this is the book for you. My husband is in the 120th and his unit was shipped to Iraq and served for eighteen months. I felt I was blessed, because of my husbands asthma, he was not allowed to deploy with his unit. This has been a terrible struggle for him as deploying in America's time of need was what he enlisted to do. After reading this book, I realized how selfish I had been in not wanting him to go. True love means "being willing to sacrifice everything-to surrender all hopes of security, comfort, and give up safety and the promise of a profitable future with family and lay down even one's own life."-Catherine Palmer. After reading this book, I called my husband at work to let him know how proud of him I would be if he is deployed. So, if you are struggling with this dilemma, I strongly suggest you read this book. If you don't belong to a military family, you will probably think this book is drivel...and isn't it nice that our sons and husbands fight for you to be able to say what you think about anything-including a book!
boring boring and boring  Jun 17, 2005
Catherine palmer is supposedly a best selling author.Based on this book it truly seems that people have forgotten what a great book is because their buying this crap.Here's the low down on the amazingly young and the restless soap opera plot.THe prejudicly catholic meg chilton and her equally overly christian son tyler are preparing for the big graduation ceremony for tyler when OH NO tyler drop's the bombshell that he's decided to join the army even though he could go to a great college.Meg chilton of course rejects tyler's desicion and blah blah blah.THe rest of the story is filled with such bestselling worthy things as characters who have no true life to them, emotional scenes which try to be worthy of a made for t.v movie but slip fast into this book's abyss of boring unoriginal and lifeless plot.THis book is supposedly moving fiction and it is.It will move you away from any other catherine palmer book. Another is the over christianity of this book.THis book makes it seem as though everyone who isn't a christian has low morale standards when that's bull crap.this book is not even worth remembering for a week
this book is @#!%^&  Jun 14, 2005
OH my God this book sucks so bad.When i first read the review of this I WAS Shocked at what I read. The person made it seem like the storyline and characters of this book were actually original.I could find a book exactly like this in a trash can or on the street.The reviewer also made it seem like the main character and her son are locked in an epic battle of emotions worthy of a tv movie.The reviewer is in my opinion a much more exciting writer than catherine palmer.Even the supposed action parts are boring and unoriginal
