The Adult Hint

We're thrilled to unveil our February Adult hint, Their Untold Story! 🚁 🩺⁠

From the renowned author of The Nightingale and The Four Winds, this novel paints an evocative picture of youth during perilous times, weaving an expansive narrative of a nation torn apart.⁠

The power of women as heroes is at the heart of this story. When a 20-year-old nursing student grasps this truth in 1965, it opens her eyes to new possibilities. As the world evolves, she envisions a new destiny for herself. Her journey leads her to enlist in the Army Nurse Corps after her brother departs for Vietnam, plunging her into the harrowing realities of war.⁠ ⁠

Amidst the uncertainties of life and death, loyalty and deceit, she forms profound friendships that are as vulnerable as they are deep. In the throes of conflict, she encounters―and becomes part of―a group marked by luck, bravery, scars, and loss. Yet, the war is merely a prelude to the challenges of returning to a fragmented and indifferent America, facing hostile protests and a nation eager to move past Vietnam.⁠

This novel is not just a tale of friendship and valor, but a vividly detailed journey led by a heroine whose idealism and bravery epitomize an entire era.⁠ ⁠

Available until February 14th (or until we sell out), we eagerly anticipate our Book Club members diving into this impactful story, accompanied by four emotive gifts and a book from one of our most cherished authors. Boxes are expected to ship in late February.⁠
