In early 2013, Chris and Taya Kyle's decade-long marriage had survived years of war that took Chris, a U.S. Navy SEAL, away for agonizingly long stretches while he put his life on the line in many major battles of the Iraq War. After struggling to readjust to life out of the military, Chris had found new purpose in redirecting his lifelong dedication to service to supporting veterans and their families. Then on February 2, 2013, Chris and his friend Chad Littlefield were killed while attempting to help a troubled vet. Now she embraces a future of service and sacrifice, faith and purpose that will inspire every reader.

Good adjunct to "American Sniper".

What a thoroughly enjoyable book that describes this brave woman's life through many obstacles. The loss of her Hero Husband and how she dealt with the grief is amazing and a very powerful motivation tool when life doesn't always go our way. Her two children are in good hands with their strong Mom. Highly recommended!!

Easy read. I read American Sniper so it was nice to read American Wife. Very revealing and I wish her the best in moving forward without Chris physically by her side but spiritually will always be there for her and the children. :)
