Staff Reviews

"Women can be heroes." After hearing that statement, young Frances "Frankie" McGrath decides to follow in her brother's footsteps and go to Vietnam. As a newly graduated nurse, she is totally unprepared for the bloodshed and violence of war. This amazing book shines the light on one of the darkest periods in our country's history, the Vietnam War, the appalling treatment of the returning veterans and the ignorant dismissal of the women who served during that war. At times this book was hard to read due to the graphic details of Frankie's time amongst the horror and atrocities committed around her. As a female veteran, the treatment Frankie and her fellow nurses received when they returned home was particularly shocking and yet once I started reading, I couldn't put it down until I finished. A stunning read, I highly recommend this eye-opening example of outstanding historical fiction!
