Message from Nam by Danielle Steel

Book Description

How do you tell someone what it's like to kill a man hand to hand, run a bayonet through his guts, or shoot a sniper in the face who turns out to be a woman? How do you explain the nine-year-old boy who throws a grenade and kills your best friend? How do you tell them what it's like? Or about the sunsets on the mountains or the green of Viet Nam, or the sounds and the smells, and the people, and the girl who can't even say your name, but you know you love her. There was nothing any of them could say. So most of them rode home in silence. For seven years Paxton Andrews would write an acclaimed newspaper column for Americans from the front, before finally returning to the States and then attending the Paris peace talks. But for her, and for the men who fought in Viet Nam, life would never be the same again.

Reviews

US Kirkus Review » The Queen of Romance in the jungles of Southeast Asia? Dedicated to "the boys who died/who lived/who cried/the boys/who fought/in Nam," Steel's 25th novel tells the story of the beauteous Paxton Andrews, a southern belle who leaves her repressive Savannah home for journalism school at Berkeley, where she falls in love with handsome law student Peter Wilson. The two are quickly radicalized ("Peter burned his draft card with Paxton's full approval"), but Peter is forced into the army anyway and quickly killed near Da Nang. Decked out in "combat clothes," a mourning Paxton heads for Vietnam in 1968 as a correspondent for the San Francisco Morning Sun, experiences the war firsthand ("Come in Lone Ranger, this is Tonto. . .Lone Ranger, do you hear me?."), and falls in love yet again-this time with a handsome infantry captain, later also killed. That leaves her free for a fiery relationship with Sergeant Tony Campobello ("her green eyes blaz [ed] into his like M-16 rifles"), who soon turns up missing in action. The distraught Paxton then bids Saigon adieu ("So long. . .goodbye, Viet Nam. . .goodbye. . .I really loved you") to take a job with The New York Times - but returns at war's end to seek out Tony, who may or may not have survived. Of Vietnam fiction this heavy-handed, implausible exercise is strictly bottom-of-the-barrel, ranking somewhere between a joke and a travesty - whether or not Steel's readers put her on the best-seller lists once again. (Kirkus Reviews)
