Seeing Stars: a Memoir
the chronicle of one woman’s middle passage of marriage to a career soldier
de Margaret Robertson Honour
Seeing Stars is one woman’s story of the starlight ever present in the life she shared with her husband.
The term “seeing stars” is used in the military to describe ambitious soldiers who aspire to greatness as evidenced on the uniforms of generals that lead. While new Lt. Charles Honour didn’t ever expect to make it to general rank, he indeed was seeing stars as he daydreamed of what he might achieve in service to his country.
Both Chuck and Peg were certainly “star struck” with love when they experienced their whirlwind romance and marriage following WWII.
Several duty stations later, the “star light” in both their eyes evidenced itself in the persons of their three children.
A cartoon-like “seeing stars” might best describe the last few years of their relationship when Peg experienced the one-two punch of divorce and death.
And finally, Peg describes the transcendent meaning of the ability to see and “reach for the stars” in the latter half of her life.
