A Modern Military Mother – Tales from the Domestic Frontline is about the life, reflections and rants of military wife Clare Macnaughton. Sometimes funny, sometimes sad and sometimes crazy, this is a quick and easy listen, with Clare herself reading her account of life on the domestic frontline.
Meet ‘Hagar’, the Chinook-flying husband frequently on secret missions in ‘Afghan’, and the children, a son, ‘The Grenade’, and, a daughter, ‘The Menace’. Listen to accounts of the handbag-bashing, bake-offs and backstabbing that conceal the isolated and unpleasant truth of the life for wives and girlfriends, the long celibate months alone with the kids waiting for news from the war zone, and Hagar’s return, when, addicted to the high-octane thrill of combat, he is in need of action at home. This is a roller-coaster ride of laughs and home truths that will keep you on the edge of your seat.
