NIGHTMARES by Paul Kasper
NIGHTMARES by Paul Kasper Nightmares will keep you wanting to read more. If you never truly understood what a soldier went thru during the Vietnam war, this will give you a good idea. This is about a unit of the 9th Infantry Division. The unit goes on patrol looking for Viet Cong or NVA regulars. They are put under fire and lost members while out. They learned to survive both mentally and physically, as death on both sides of the war could happen at any moment. Yes, it is a fiction! The names were also changed, but it is based on facts. You will go on patrol with these young men, age range of 18-24, as they become exposed to the horrors of war. Their lives were changed forever, then returned home to supposedly forget it. I lost many friends who became Brothers in Vietnam. Some were shot, some were taken by booby traps, now called IED’s. We continue dying now due to age and exposure to Agent Orange since returning home. Agent Orange (is a blanket term for 15 chemicals used as a defoliant) a large variety of illnesses such as various cancers, diabetes and many more deadly diseases are a side effect of our exposure.
BETSY AND CATHERINE: AN UNCOMMON FRIENDSHIP by Helen Gailey Set in eighteenth-century London, England, this fictional novel touches on the life of the upper crust and those who served them. As they both come together, foolish choices and harrowing consequences take two women—one an aristocrat and the other her servant—into a storm of trial, scorn, and tribulation. Stripped of title, recognition, and value, one wonders who the heroine really is, Catherine or Betsy? Catherine repeatedly asks, How will Lord Edward find us? A twisted and perverse judge condemns these two women to the Australian colonies. What is his motivation? Why would he want to hurt two women he’d never seen before? When everything about her life and station no longer has meaning, tears flow for Catherine. What has she done? Her foolishness has bought shame both on herself and her dearest friend, Betsy. How can she go on if they are parted? As Betsy looks back in time, her memories share love, concern, and deep anxiety. As she looks forward, she questions, Am I worthy of kindness above my station?
