I received a free copy of this book to read and give an honest review.

Hospitals are known for saving lives but wars destroy them. Pam Webber masterfully portrays both the environment of a teaching hospital as well as the challenges of an army squad trying to survive in an atmosphere surrounded by death. The author's extensive research into the Viet Nam War is evident just as her background in the medical field gives authenticity to hospital protocols and the experiences of nurse interns. The horrors of war are counter-balanced by the skills and compassion of nurses.

Nettie and Andy are devastated when they are separated as they are planning their wedding. Andy is deployed to Viet Nam while Nettie is left behind to continue as a nursing intern in Northern Virginia. In their letters to one another they share their love but not the true details of their difficult lives including being bullied by superiors. They both deal with their bullies in their own kind and true to themselves manner.

All people must make difficult choices and then live them no matter the consequences. Nettie and Andy are no exception.

I strongly recommend that you read this book.
