Book Description

Jun 1990
As a journalist, Paxton Andrews would experience  Vietnam firsthand. We follow her from high school in Savannah to  college in Berkeley and then to work in Saigon.

For the soldiers she  knew and met there, Viet Nam would change their  lives in ways they could never have imagined. For the men  in her life, Viet Nam would change their lives in ways hey could not  escape or deny. Peter  Wilson, fresh from law school, was a new recruit  who would confont his fate in Da Nang. Ralph  Johnson, a seasoned AP correspondent, had been in  Saigon since the beginning. He knew Vietnam and the  war inside out. Bill Quinn, captain of the Cu Chi  tunnel rats, was on his fourth tour of duty and it  seemed nothing could touch him. Sergeant Tony  Campobello had come to Vietnam from the streets of  New York to vent a rage that had followed him all the way to Saigon.

For seven years  Paxton Andrews would write an acclaimed newspaper  column from the front before finally returning to the  States and then attending the Paris peace talks.  But for her and the men who fought in Viet Nam,  life would never be the same again.

Product Description

Book Description

In this bestselling novel, Danielle Steel takes us to the war in Viet Nam, with all its power and tragedy and excitement. It is a message you will never forget. --This text refers to the Paperback edition.

From the Back Cover

How do you tell someone what it's like to kill a man hand to hand, run a bayonet through his guts, or shoot a sniper in the face who turns out to be a woman? How do you explain the nine-year-old boy who throws a grenade and kills your best friend? How do you tell them what it's like? Or about the sunsets on the mountains or the green of Viet Nam, or the sounds and the smells, and the people, and the girl who can't even say your name, but you know you love her. There was nothing any of them could say. So most of them rode home in silence.

For seven years Paxton Andrews would write an acclaimed newspaper column for Americans from the front, before finally returning to the States and then attending the Paris peace talks. But for her, and for the men who fought in Viet Nam, life would never be the same gain.

In this bestselling novel, Danielle Steel takes us to the war in Viet Nam, with all its power and tragedy and excitement. It is a message you will never forget.

5.0 out of 5 stars All heart 3 April 2001
By A Customer
Format:Paperback
Danielle Steel truely poured her whole heart into this book, as it leaves the heart truely torn for emotion. The brutal honesty, and pure torn people that the war left is placed in all truth down in this book. Each character developes thorugh the book, and they each become magnificent in their own way. Danielle writes with such compassion, and warmth, that i found it hard not to cry outloud, or jump for joy, when situations of this emotionally written book form. It tells a tale of grief, surprise, and shear heart ache but more of love, and strong friencdships that can bulid in the most horrific situations. A truely fantastic book and one of her best. You would miss out on a amazing book if this is passed by.

5.0 out of 5 stars Summer read 21 April 2002
Format:Paperback
A typical offering from Steel, the story combines real life history and drama with the lives of the main characters. Set during the Vietnam war, Steel's context is impeccable as always and a suitable backdrop for the personalities of her characters. The strength and courage of the heroine should serve as an inspiration to us all.

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent 18 Oct 2006
Format:Paperback
I love this book and take it with me every year on holiday! It is the most serious D Steele book I have ever read and the detail of the war is excellent. I cried a few times during this book (howled actually), and it is a rare book that moves me to tears. The ending was a wee bit abrupt but didn't spoil the book.

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent 17 Feb 2007
By Mrs. A. M. Chadwick VINE VOICE
Format:Paperback
Great story from Danielle Steel. This is one of the first novels I'd read of hers a few years back.

I've read this book more then once,( come to think of it I've read all her books more then once as I think she's a great author).

An easy read, it's a compulsive story, so be warned. It's like all her book, once you start reading it you can't put it down.

I don't want to telle you anything about the story as it will spoil it for you, and to me that wouldn't be fair.

A lovely and emotional novel by the great Danielle Steel.

A must for all fans and for people who have never read any of her books. Keep up the great work Danielle Steel. :-)

By A Customer
Format:Paperback
I thought this book was great, it had a very emotional story line that kept you hooked until the end, the story helped you to understand what it was like in Nam and feel how someone might have felt whilst they were involved in the war...I feel that I have gained a lot of information about Nam and it has made me want to read more Steel books
