Household Baggage

Household Baggage

Household Baggage is an entertaining collection of funny, poignant, and disarmingly candid essays written by Marna Ashburn, an Army wife for twenty years and mother of two children.

Her lively and revealing stories explore the challenges confronting today’s military family—frequent moves, long separations, uncomfortable living quarters, and wartime deployments.

Household Baggage is perfect for the military spouse who alternates between surviving and thriving, and who always welcomes an extended hand, a sympathetic ear, and comic relief.
