What People Are Saying About Confessions

I’m reading Confessions for the tenth or twentieth time right now. I want..no NEED to thank you. Your book is top on my list to recommend to everyone. Spouses of any branch, extended family, even civilians in similar lifestyles.

Every good comment you have ever read, please insert here. I don’t want your eyes to glaze with them all.

Someday I hope to meet you and thank you in person.

Until then, I eagerly await your next book.

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!

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.

— Terri Barnes, “Spouse Calls,” Stars and Stripes “Experience the military wife’s life through Mollie’s eyes.


You will laugh your way through every chapter.

— Karen Kelly, “Marine Wife, I MEF”


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.

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, 2007-2009


Mollie’s Confessions explains the wonderful and funny moments of base living—and the culture shock of life as a Marine Corps wife. Open Confessions of a Military Wife to any page and get a quick infusion of laughter that will get you through your day.

“Hi Mollie! I just finished your book and laughed my way through last week reading it! It is so relatable and real! I think you are a role model in which all military wives should look up to. Your book was exactly what I was looking for and what I needed. I took away tons of great advice (the extended family stuff was especially helpful) and have asked his FRO to take a LINKS class while I’m visiting next month. You gave me an amazing insight to what life is like being married to a Marine and I think in addition to wives all girlfriends and fiancees should read your book. Thank you thank you!”

— Nicole Comeau



“I just wanted to let you know that our book club that we do through MCFTB (I’m a Readiness & Deployment Support Trainer) just finished reading your book! It had really great insight and prompted excellent discussions from all of our wonderful spouses! I caught myself several times saying “Yep! That’s about right!” Great read!”

— Mary Jo Boice of Beaufort, SC


Not a Military Wife? That’s OK. Mollie’s humor is for everyone! Check out this review:

“I’m not a military wife but I am loving your book Mollie Gross! I have been laughing so much it must be annoying my daughter; she keeps asking, “what is so funny?

Perfect for a snowed-in pick me up!”
