    A powerhouse book that takes you deep into the heart of darkness that was the Vietnam War This book is about one young draftees descent into PTSD but it is also a story about love and romantic yearning in the most unlikely of situations I can guarantee you one thing long after you put this book down you will continue thinking about it I give it the top rating
