“The Women” by Kristin Hannah

Kristin Hannah‘s latest historical novel tells the story of a young American woman serving as an army nurse during the Vietnam war. When 20 year-old Frankie McGrath embarks on her journey in Vietnam, she is a naïve and sheltered girl from California, seeking to make her family proud. She is met with the brutality of war and quickly faced with confronting themes of loss, deception, trauma, and addiction. The Women underlines the essential role played by female nurses during war and the lasting post-war impact on veterans and their families.

Renowned for her bestselling World War II text The Nightingale, Hannah’s newest novel similarly adopts a female perspective towards the largely male-centric understanding of history. A fast paced and gripping novel that educates and entertains.
