Kristin Hannah's THE WOMEN reveals women with grit

#Thewomen by #KristinHannah is a novel focusing on the exceptional women, who were female combat nurses, during the Vietnam War.

I am a huge fan of Kristin Hannah's Nightengale novel. This historical fiction novel recounts the experiences of women, who served as combat nurses during the Vietnam War. From a glimpse of female combatants in the 1960s-1970s, to an examination of how the US treated veterans, Hannah describes the challenges women veterans faced in the Vietnam War.

I loved the descriptions of how nurses helped save lives in the Vietnam War. Hannah is able to describe the moments of war and the violence and trauma for military veterans. There are quite a few issues crammed into this book, drug addiction, 1960s' politics, veterans' rights, misogyny, sexism, and music history. Hannah has a good instinct on how to create the historical viewpoints. I think the personal story of Frankie is compelling and keeps the novel's plot moving.

I liked the friendships of the women and how their friendships were the real love story. Thanks to #netgalley and #stmartinspress for the e-galley! The Women will be publishing in February 2024. #bookstagram #bookstagrammer #bookblogger #book #bookworm #bookshelves #kristinhannah #historicalfiction #netgalleyarc #netgalleyreviewer #netgalley #stmartinspress
