Journalist Paxton Andrews goes to Viet Nam and for 7 years writes a column about the lives of the soldiers she meets and the way the war changes everyone.
~wonderful book very moving~
I found I had a duplicate copy of this book and decided to share my favorite copy of it
I just LOVE Danielle Steele. This is another one of her greats!!
As a journalist, Paxton Andrews would experience VietNam first hand. We follow her from Savannah to Berkley to Siagon. For the soldiers she knew and met there, Vietnam would change their lives in ways they could never have imagined. Peter Wilson, fresh from law school would confront his fate in Da Nang. Ralph Johnson, a seasoned AP correspondent has been in Siagon from the beginning and knew VietNam inside and out. Bill Quinn was on his fourth tour of duty and it seemed that nothing could touch him. Sgt. Tony Camobello came to Viet Nam from the streets of New York to vent over the rage that had turned him into a fighting machine. For Seven years Paxton Andrews would write her column from the front and then attended the Paris peace talks. But for her and the men who fought in Viet nam, life would never be the same again.
Danielle Steel's book about a journalist in Vietnam during the war. One of my favorites by this author.
If you like Danielle Steel, you'll enjoy this!
This was the first book I read by Danielle Steel & from then on I was hooked--
lady journalist in viet nam - a page-turner
Great Danielle Steel work, as usual
As a journalist, Paxton Andrews would experience Vietnam firsthand. We follow her from high school in Savannah to college in Berkeley and then to work in Saigon.
For the soldiers she knew and met there, Viet Nam would change their lives in ways they could never have imagined. For the men in her life, Viet Nam would change their lives in ways hey could not escape or deny. Peter Wilson, fresh from law school, was a new recruit who would confont his fate in Da Nang. Ralph Johnson, a seasoned AP correspondent, had been in Saigon since the beginning. He knew Vietnam and the war inside out. Bill Quinn, captain of the Cu Chi tunnel rats, was on his fourth tour of duty and it seemed nothing could touch him. Sergeant Tony Campobello had come to Vietnam from the streets of New York to vent a rage that had followed him all the way to Saigon.
For seven years Paxton Andrews would write an acclaimed newspaper column from the front before finally returning to the States and then attending the Paris peace talks. But for her and the men who fought in Viet Nam, life would never be the same again.
The names and dates may be made up but the story is one experience by many in this war. Ms Steel done an excellent job researching for this piece.
i simply loved this book, it is passionate and involved it has true substance (which I do not always find in Danielle Steele). The characters come alive and you are truly brought into the book. I highly recommend it, to me it was not just another Danielle Steele romance, it has it all.
The fist and only Danielle Steel I will ever read. The married men in this story and their infidelity turned me off to Ms. Steel's other work.
This is absolutely my favorite Danielle Steel novel of all times. Message to Nam takes you on a journey through love and tragedy during the Vietnam War. This is a must read.
The cover is different on this book that I have to share. Wonderful story!! This book has been read several times. You will enjoy reading this book. The covers inside are yellow.
