Lily Hates Goodbyes

Lily Hates Goodbyes
by Jerilyn Marler



Lily must deal with the feelings of separation from her military Dad. The emotions range from confusion to loneliness, sadness to anger. She does find ways to stay connected to him, with the help of her mother and family. Through this support, she also learns to trust that she is not abandoned, and that they will all be reunited. When they eventually are, Lily sees she was never alone. Many families are separated by the military, and because they are family love and support reunite them.

This book is written by “the real” Lily’s grandmother. It is an honest, sweet book, with a real purpose. There is a page of suggestions for families separated by military service. The page is designed to help get the most out of the book.
This is a very special and important book.
