WILMINGTON, NC (WECT) - A Wilmington author has written a book that she hopes will help female soldiers who are overseas fighting for our country.

Kirsten Holmstedt held a signing for her book "The Girls Come Marching Home" at the Barnes and Noble Bookstore in Mayfaire Sunday.

The book focuses on how female soldiers who are overseas fighting in Iraq deal with physical injuries, mental health issues, and emotional health when they return home.
