Annotation "Women can be heroes. When twenty-year-old nursing student, Frances "Frankie" McGrath, hears these unexpected words, it is a revelation. Raised on California's idyllic Coronado Island and sheltered by her conservative parents, she has always prided herself on doing the right thing, being a good girl. But in 1965 the world is changing, and she suddenly imagines a different path for her life. When her brother ships out to serve in Vietnam, she impulsively joins the Army Nurses Corps and follows his path. As green and inexperienced as the young men sent to Vietnam to fight, Frankie is overwhelmed by the chaos and destruction of war, as well as the unexpected trauma of coming home to a changed America. Frankie will also discover the true value of female friendship and the heartbreak that love can cause." -- Provided by publisher. -- Unrated. Commercial audiobook. Spanish language.
"«Las mujeres también pueden ser heroínas». Cuando Frances, estudiante de enfermería, oye por primera vez estas palabras, siente una revelación. Y cuando su hermano parte rumbo a Vietnam para combatir, ella se une de manera impulsiva al cuerpo de enfermeras del ejército estadounidense para seguirlo. Allí se sentirá igual de inmadura e inexperta que los jóvenes enviados para luchar en medio del caos y la destrucción de la guerra; además, un trauma inesperado la sacude al volver a casa: el de encontrar un país cambiado y dividido. Frankie descubrirá el verdadero valor de la amistad femenina y el dolor que puede causar un corazón roto." -- Proporcionada por la editorial. -- Traducido de la edición en inglés de 2024.
