    1 thought on “'Tis the Season”

    1. This third book in the Echo Company series goes in a different direction, with the main character being Lieutenant Rebecca Phillips, a nurse in Vietnam. She's cheerful, friendly, a little goofy, and lovable, and I was interested in her immediately. After some establishing scenes, however, everything goes wrong when she illicitly goes along on a rescue mission when no military corpsman is around. What happens next changes Rebecca forever.I wouldn't have been so easy-going about not seeing more of [...]

    2. This is Rebecca's backstory, what you miss in The Road Home. Solid characters in an untenable situation, doing the best they can. So achingly true, so well written. I need to have this whole series of books. They surely do pass the 3 a.m. test. Rebecca is such a wonderful person, complicated and fierce and devoted and broken. I think there needs to be a sixth book. And maybe a seventh.

    3. Rebecca is the singing nurse, with a green ribbon in one braid, a red ribbon in the other. Too much Christmas spirit to be able to suppress it. Even in Vietnam.At least that’s the part she plays, for the boys who come into the ER tent bleeding and shot apart and asking what happened to their squad members.But at night she’s the one counting needles or numbing her mind with alcohol. And trying not to remember the guy who confessed he loved her, then came home in a coffin.Three months. She’s [...]

    4. I am loving this series. The books aren't long and are easy to read, but man, they transport me to another place and time.

    5. Christmas in Vietnam. Perspective switches to nurse Rebecca, and gives much-needed backstory for anyone who read The Road Home first.

    6. Coming off the mentally and physically exhausting battle from 'Hill 568,' the narrative switches from Michael to follow Lt. Rebecca Phillips in 'Tis the Season. Rebecca is in Vietnam for many personal reasons, one being the army paid for her nursing degree so she's agreed to spend one year as a nurse in a field hospital in Vietnam. Full of sass herself, Rebecca impulsively jumps on a medi-vac helicopter which then crashes in the jungle and kills her friends. Bad enough right? To her horror, some [...]

    7. I read The Road Home over and over and over in middle and high school - and college and grad school and beyond. I love Rebecca madly. And this, finally, is her introduction. Finally, I see the Rebecca that everyone referenced as lost throughout her sequel. It's heartbreaking to finally see what happened in the jungle. It's pretty much exactly what I imagined from hints and discussions in The Road Home, but it's still different to experience it as it happens. Excellent characters and storytelling [...]

    8. I relate to Rebecca more than is reasonable. I am not a nurse, an extrovert(ish), a party girl, nor do I make terrible snap decisions. And yet I recognized her.The research and accuracy of a Vietnam hospital are notable for such a short book and for how seamless they blend into the narrative. Rebecca encounters Vietnamese people, but because of the language barrier, she is still very much disconnected. She does question her own internalized racism but ultimately lacks the energy and motivation n [...]
