A Night In with Kristin Hannah
Join award-winning and bestselling author of The Four Winds, The Nightingale and Firefly Lane Kristin Hannah to celebrate the publication of her brand new, hotly anticipated novel The Women.
‘Women can be heroes, too’. When twenty-year-old nursing student, 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.
The Women is a story of devastating loss and epic love. It is both an intimate portrait of a young woman coming of age in a dangerous time and a story of a nation divided by war. Sign up now for the chance to join Kristin as she delves into her inspirations and writing process behind this richly drawn story.
