Overview

ALONE IN A COUNTRY AT WAR.
As the young wife of a USAF pilot, the writer is not authorized to accompany her husband when he receives orders for Vietnam. She decides to go anyway, on her own, and ends up in the country before her husband.
Join her, as she arrives alone, the day after a coup, and in the middle of a cholera epidemic. Accompany her through her fears, challenges, and joys. You will be at her side as she taps into a hidden western culture that seems to flow as an undercurrent beneath the noise and clamor of an over-populated city. You also will witness her interaction with the Vietnamese people, and learn how she developed such a great affection for them and their country.
BOTTOM LINE
It is the author's hope that the readers will develop a similar fondness for this lovely country and its beautiful and gentle people, as they travel vicariously with her through the pages of this book.
