Kristin Hannah’s newest novel is “The Women.” In 1965 the world is changing and Frances “Frankie” McGarth, who was raised by conservative parents, dares to imagine a different future for herself. When her brother ships out to serve in Vietnam, she joins the Army Nurse Corps and follows his path. Green and as inexperienced as the men sent to fight, Frankie is overwhelmed by the chaos and destruction of war. Yet the real battle for Frankie and her veteran friends is coming home to a changed and divided America, angry protesters, and a country that wants to forget Vietnam. “The Women” is also available digitally in Libby.
