The first novel in the series, which is called “True Devotion” was written mainly to give readers a good perspective into lives of the people who serve in the military. It goes in depth, talking about the lives of the family members and what they have to do (what they have to sacrifice and do). It is not just the men and women in the military that serve this country, but also their family members, too. Henderson did some extensive research on the jobs, duties, and responsibilities of the different characters to get it down just right. All so that she could give her readers a better understanding of what her characters are going through.
