Powerful Remembrance. For many, the Vietnam War is a painful subject to unearth from its place in history. The harsh impact of those harrowing years is still felt today. Sadly, the veterans of that war were not appropriately cared for or revered for the heroes that they were. And much like other facets of history the brave women who played essential roles were mostly marginalized and forgotten. Learning about the traumatic experiences of female service members during and after the war is both heartbreaking and inspiring.
I highly recommend this novel if you can handle the vivid accounts of what occurred in combat zones and struggles with healing from post-war PTSD.
I’d like to thank NetGalley for an advanced copy of The Women for my unbiased evaluation. 5 stars
