This was part of the Danielle Steel "Golden Age" where her books really were page turners.

This one is about southern belle Paxton, who decides to break from the southern belle tradition of women who know their place and goes to Berkeley for school during the height of the 1960s varying movements. There she falls for Peter, a older student going to law school and son of a newspaper magnate. Their love is blossoming but Pax won't stay tied down, dedicating her life to being a journalism major, not even to the man she loves. Then Peter gets drafted and ultimately killed, which breaks her heart because marriage could have saved him. That's what takes Paxton and her career to the battlefields of Vietnam. A search/hunt/suicide mission searching for Peter's ghost turns Pax into a seasoned journalist who finally gets what she wishes for, a life far away from southern gentility and one that shows her what life and the United States is all about.

Good book and an equally good adaptation movie starring Rue MacClanahan, Esther Rolle, and Hope Lange. ( )

I served one tour in Vietnam. I choose this book because of the title. I read the eBook version from Libby (12:59). The story mentions when Martha Raye and her troop came to Vietnam. I was there at the time. She came to Cat Lai where we ran a twenty-four hour a day port operation unloading ammunition from ocean going vessels anchored in the river. Cat Lai was an old French seaplane base with a huge hanger. The GIs set up a temporary stage in the hanger where Martha Raye performed. The book covers events during the many years of the war while telling the story of newspaper correspondent Paxton Andrews. ( )

I read this while pregnant with my youngest, and I cried through most of it. Well, about a third of the way through I started crying and didn't stop until the end. Maybe the pregnancy hormones had something to do with it, but I think this would be emotional for anyone to read.

Beautiful characters, heartbreaking yet also heartwarming story. I'd read again. ( )

I do realize that Danielle Steel writes romance into many novels, but I was hoping to learn more about the war. I would LOVE to have read some of Paxton's column entries. This title is the second for my book club discussion. ( )

It was a chill gray day in Savannah, and there was a brisk breeze blowing in from the ocean.
