    1. The War Within is a lovely written book which is basically two stories in one Meredith and Natalie s long, long, long awaited romance and that of Jordan Meredith s granddaughter and Tatum Natalie s niece We share Meredith s story as she recounts her time serving as an Army nurse in the Vietnam War From the lives she and her fellow nursing comrades saved to the missions and various postings throughout Nam The story also sheds light on Meredith s insecurities about her new found feelings for fello [...]

    2. In my humble opinion, this is the best book Yolanda Wallace has written It s an excellent blend of past and present that flows together seamlessly If you ve read many of my reviews, you know I m a sucker for military women stories and this is a great one I cannot imagine what it would be like to serve while risking life and also risking your career for loving the wrong sex Things aren t perfect yet but thank God we ve come a long way This novel also deals with loving someone who has a disability [...]

    3. Provoking, gripping and insightful I m not a combat veteran myself so I don t recognize it but I have now a greater appreciation of what the soldiers in the field went through, what this war was like for so many people But this book is not simply a book about war but also about two awesome love stories It s about grief, terror, survival, self effacement and love It s provoking, gripping, insightful The fear of a lesbian soldier to get caught, the consequences thereof, the dishonorable discharge [...]

    4. This is the fourth book I ve read by this author And to think, this all started from me asking for and receiving 24 7 through Netgallery and the publisher Who knows if I would have otherwise ever gotten around to reading something by Wallace, eh CharactersI could very well be confusing myself, but I believe this book has two points of view And it d be a much different type of book if those two points of view were the opposite sides of a coupling Since the point of views are that of Meredith Mose [...]

    5. A NetGalley read in exchange for an honest reviewA strong 3.5 stars Strongly defined characters who mature both in age and emotionally, interesting peek into the past I would ve like to see a bit to demonstrate the HEA, but then I m a sucker for an epilogue Here are some disjointed thoughts You would think that 4 main characters and a handful of secondary characters would be cumbersome and confusing But they re handled with precision and are so distinct that it s easy to discern each voice.This [...]

    6. The flashbacks are the highlight of the book Fast moving, obvious tension And props for having a character with a disability and a romance between older women However, the book felt too short and rushed I wanted I wanted to hear about the obvious problems the younger couple were going you face a relationship and facing what that means, the commitment, the responsabilities I wanted to know what were the implications of their decisions what would they do about school or moving across the countr [...]

    7. Meredith a Vietnam medical vet is a grandmother to Jordan, who is an outspoken opponent of war and student at Berkeley They are preparing to go on a road trip together which is what they do yearly over the summer to live and work in a new place of Jordan s choosing I thought it was an interesting concept and really liked their interactions from the start, though it seemed highly unlikely Jordan would pick out the town where Meredith s former flame lived It s possible I missed a reference in the [...]

    8. A genuine, very moving and heartfelt novel, The War Within is not only aptly titled, it is everything and the stirring cover promises I have to admit the best parts for me are the ones that deal with the Vietnam War flashbacks and Meredith s growing realization of her deep and romantic feelings for another woman, but, truly, the entire book is terrific and I highly recommend it as both a compelling and very sincere read

    9. The truth is, I don t know who I am I guess I m what you call a work in progress I know what I want to be, but I don t want to be defined solely by a title Nurse Wife Mother I want to be all those things, but I don t want any of them to make me stop being Meredith Meredith Moser from The War Within by Yolanda WallaceThe plot of The War Within is split between the present and a retelling of events during the Vietnam War Meredith Moser was an Army nurse in Vietnam, which is where she met Natalie R [...]

    10. Pretty well written, and there was complexity to the relationships than I expected The familial connection between Grandma Meredith and Jordan was just as important, if not so, than the eventual romance each of them gets involved with I didn t know how much I needed a grandmother and granddaughter bonding over their love of women And I loved the premise that each summer they would choose a road trip destination by Jordan closing her eyes and poking at the map randomly There s a sense of freedom [...]

    11. I was given this book in exchange for an honest review.This was a well written love story There are four main characters but the author does a great job giving each one a unique voice and not getting the reader confused cause lets be honest sometimes any amount over two main characters can get confusing The story is a mix between present time and flashbacks The transfer between the two is flawless Can t wait to read from the author

    12. Liked the characters, loved the story My only complaint is at the beginning of the book the characters are referred to by last name military style and later in the book by first name, made have to rethink who was talking Messed up the continuity for me.
