Vivid romantic recounting of Pearl Harbor and its aftermath.
- Book: The Lieutenant’s Nurse
- Location: Hawaii
- Author: Sara Ackerman
Ackerman’s splendid writing pulls you into the lives and times leading up to and dealing with “that day of infamy.” With vivid, believable and complex characters she pulls you into the events of the time and how people might have faired. There is a lovely romance at the heart of it. Perhaps my favorite part is the description of a voyage on the Lurline, the famous cruise ship that brought visitors to Hawaii in that era. Make sure you have this one in your carry-on!
