Review: Home Before Morning

User Review  - Amy - Goodreads

Very moving - it's strange to say that I enjoyed this book, because it was such a heart-wrenching story - but I did. I'm amazed at what the author and so many women like her experienced in Vietnam, then once they returned home. Read full review

Review: Home Before Morning

User Review  - Linda - Goodreads

One of the most memorable books I have ever read. The women who served in Vietnam were not even acknowledged for many years after the end of that war. I cried more tears than I want to admit while reading this book. Should be required reading for everyone in the US Read full review
