- Leatherneck magazine

"Mollie Gross is the Chelsea Handler of the milspouse community. She's unfiltered, honest, and hilarious, with an underlying message to stop whining and be proud. Think of it as heartfelt humor for the home front."

- Military Spouse magazine

"This book will have you laughing so hard you cry, but mostly nodding your head in agreement. As Confessions aptly demonstrates, military spouses lead interesting lives. Leave it to Mollie to turn some of our most candid military spouse moments into fits of laughter!"

- Tara E. Crooks, military lifestyle writer, speaker, talk radio host, and co-founder of Army Wife Network (

"Better put on your big girl panties for this wild ride! Mollie's Confessions is not for the faint of heart. She expresses her faith, but nothing is sacred, so if you can handle the minute details of a Brazilian wax and what Bunco parties are really all about, dive right in. Prepare to be uplifted, and by that I mean right out of your chair. You'll either laugh uncontrollably or throw the book across the room. Either way, Mollie's tales of her life as a Marine wife will not leave you unmoved."

"Underneath this crafty blend of humor, kindred friendships, and life-changing experiences lies the universal wisdom applicable to generations of military spouses, past, present, and future. Mollie's comical epiphanies depict her resilience as she grapples with familiar military spouse dilemmas: marriage, deployments, self-discovery, PCS, and career changes. Confessions of a Military Wife is a must-read book, and bound to become a hallmark of contemporary military spouse titles."

- Tanya Queiro, 2009 Military Spouse of the Year

"My husband was out of the Army for two years before I read Mollie's book. He and I rarely talked about deployment and how it affected our relationship. After reading the book I felt comfortable and knowledgeable on how to talk to my husband. Our relationship changed for the better and continues to strengthen each day. I credit Mollie and her book for opening our lines of communication and will forever be grateful."

- Julie Murphy, Reality TV producer, E!, Style, Bravo,
Oprah Winfrey Network

"Confessions should be issued to EVERY military girlfriend or wife. I wish I had this book when I married into the military. It is a must-read for every wife stationed on a military base, and serves as comic relief during the most stressful times of deployment. After reading it, I knew I wasn't crazy or alone. It is Survival 101 for every military wife or girlfriend."

- Autumn Leigh, Marine wife, Key Volunteer

"Mollie's book should be in the hands of every military wife, or anyone curious about the inside scoop on military life. It is refreshing for those of us who have been waiting for someone to tell it like it is! I went from shock to crying and laughing all in one paragraph! Her comedy shows were always the most anticipated event on Camp Pendleton, and I am glad she can now share her hilarious experiences with everyone!"

- Melody Abshear, Enlisted Wives Club President, Camp Pendleton,
