The Women A Novel By Kristin Hannah
Kristin Hannah envelops readers in the untold story of awe-inspiring women who stood tall amidst Vietnam’s shattering volatility.
In 1965, sheltered nursing student Frankie dares to envision a bold future outside society’s narrow expectations. When her brother ships to war’s frenzied frontlines, she follows into the Army Nurse Corps. Despite confronting resourceful courage daily from soldiers, sexism deems females unfit for the battlefield.
Yet confronting combat’s grueling physical and emotional turmoil transforms tender youth into steely veterans overnight. Underestimated heroines bond together, drawing power from solidarity. Though the fallen cut deep, commitments run deeper.
Returning home, the trial by fire continues. A country eager to gloss over still-raw wounds spurns its daughters-in-arms. But bonded by shared sacrifice, Frankie and her fellow nurses kindle the convictions to reignite a movement.
More than a masterwork of historical fiction, The Women resurrects the overlooked legacy of invaluable WOMEN who shaped Vietnam’s aftermath in America. While one humble nurseCannot eradicate prejudice alone, many can ignite lasting change.
