For the past
two days, I immersed myself in the pages of Solo Vietnam by Jeanette Vaughan. In this, her second novel, a sequel
to Flying Solo (reviewed here in July 2012) in which we are introduced to
an amazingly courageous woman, Nora Jean Broussard once again takes to the skies as a dust cropper by day and a torch singer
by night. She find herself managing a USO canteen in South Vietnam, hoping to find her former lover. This good, solid historical
novel about loves lost and regained and living life to the fullest is steeped in the morass of the Vietnam War era, complete
with action and adventure that will satisfy any mature reader.

I've enjoyed most of the books I've read lately--okay, I admit, there might have been one or two really bad klunkers. But
while I liked the author’s style, I was somewhat disappointed in the overall presentation of Dear Lucy: A Novel by Julie Sarkissian.
