Kristin Hannah’s New Book in 2024
On May 9, 2023, Kristin Hannah announced the title of her upcoming book, The Women. This new historical fiction novel currently has an expected publication date of February 6, 2024, and it’s available for pre-order now. You can watch the promo video released by St. Martin’s Press, and then read on for a synopsis of Kristin Hannah’s new book.
Frances “Frankie” McGrath is a 21-year-old nursing student who has been raised by her conservative parents to always do “the right thing.” But when her brother ships out for Vietnam in 1965, she begins to change her views of right and wrong. Frankie impulsively joins the Army Nurses Corps and follows her brother to Vietnam. As she tends to the green and inexperienced young men who have been sent to fight the war, she is overwhelmed by the chaos and destruction. Returning home to a changed America doesn’t prove to be any easier.
While The Women is the story of Frankie going to war, it also shines a light on the story of all women who risk everything to help others. The publisher’s description describes this book as “a novel of searing insight and lyrical beauty” that is “profoundly emotional” and “richly drawn.”
