Don’t Go is the story of a soldier who discovers what it means to be a man, a father, and ultimately, a hero. Called to serve as an army surgeon in Afghanistan, Dr. Scanlon is acutely aware of the dangers he’ll face and the hardships it will cause his wife and newborn daughter. Ironically, while he is saving wounded soldiers in a war-torn country, his wife dies in their suburban kitchen, the victim of an apparent household accident. A gripping, thrilling and profoundly emotional story.

BOOK GROUP

Sunday, September 16th at 2:30 pm

On Sept. 16 we will end the summer with the discussion of GI Brides: The Wartime Girls Who Crossed the Atlantic for Love by Duncan Barrett & Nuala Calvi The “friendly invasion” of Britain by over a million American GIs bewitched a generation of young women deprived of male company during the Second World War. With their exotic accents, smart uniforms, and aura of Hollywood glamour, the GIs easily conquered their hearts and offered an escape route from Blitz-ravaged Britain. Through the true stories of four British women who crossed the Atlantic to make a new life with the American servicemen they married, GI Brides illuminates the experiences of war brides who found themselves in a foreign culture thousands of miles away from family and friends, with men they hardly knew.
