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.

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.

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.

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.

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 Stacey on 17 April 2015
Format: Paperback
Message from Nam follows the life of Paxton Andrews.

We first meet Paxton as a school girl in Savannah, who declines an offer to attend Harvard University, opting to study journalism at Berkeley instead.

Whilst at Berkeley, she falls in love with law student, Peter, but when war breaks out in Vietnam, Peter is called up to serve for his country, and drafted overseas to fight.

When news gets back to Paxton that Peter has died in combat, she finds it hard to cope. To help with her grief, she wants to travel to Vietnam to see for herself what Peter went through, to understand why the war is taking place and why Peter died.

Paxton becomes the war correspondent for the newspaper she works for and over the course of the next seven years, we get to be with Paxton as she reports from the front line.

This is a heart wrenching, emotional, and at times grief-stricken story, surrounding life and the fighting in Vietnam, and one woman's determination to not only report from the front line, but to try to understand why the war is happening.

The book is powerful and informative about what happened during the war as it mixes a fictional story with real life.

Paxton is a wonderfully created character who I adore. She is headstrong, knows what she wants in life and will do anything to get there. She gets to witness some horrific scenes of war and we watch as she tries to come to turns with not only the events that she is reporting on, but also those that are happening in her private life.

We hear from the men who are fighting in the war as Paxton follows them and reports on their every move, whilst placing herself in danger on the front line.

Over the course of seven years, she returns to Vietnam three times.

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

This has been my favorite book for years and I re-read it every 18 months or so.

The characters draw you in to the story and keep you gripped until the end.

If I was going to recommend any book it would be this one.
