Holly Furtick & Friends discussing the book The Women


The Women
Raised in the sun-drenched, idyllic world of Southern California and sheltered by her conservative parents, twenty-year-old nursing student Frances “Frankie” McGrath has always prided herself on doing the right thing. In 1965, the world is changing and when her brother ships out to serve in Vietnam, she joins the Army Nurse Corps and follows his path. The Women is the story of one woman gone to war, but it shines a light on all women who put themselves in harm’s way and whose sacrifice and commitment to their country has too often been forgotten. A novel about deep friendships and bold patriotism, The Women is a richly drawn story with a memorable heroine whose idealism and courage under fire will come to define an era.
