You can hear the buzzing excitement whenever a new novel is out from KRISTIN HANNAH. So it is with The Women, her latest, which debuted at #1 on The New York Times Best Sellers list. The author of The Nightingale and Four Winds has given us another compelling heroine, young Frances “Frankie” McGrath, who leaves her sheltered Southern California girlhood to become a combat nurse in Vietnam as the war rages. Brave in the face of death and heartbreak, she returns to a deeply divided America that wants to forget everything about Vietnam. In conversation with JENNY EMERY DAVIDSON, head of The Community Library in Ketchum, Hannah will talk about The Women and how the idea for the book first captured her.
