Every Lover is a Soldier: A Story of Vietnam

In this sweeping tale of one woman’s experience of the Vietnam War and its aftermath, Samantha Sullivan loses her brother to the war only to gain the love of his best friend, Sergeant Jake Westergaard.

When Sam joins the Army Nurse Corps and is sent to the 91st Evac Hospital, Chu Lai in 1967, she is shocked to find Jake is stationed there as a platoon sergeant. Forbidden from fraternizing due to the difference in their ranks, they develop their relationship in secret, supporting each other through the violence and pain of their respective duties. 

They marry in secret—on R&R in Hawaii—and return to Vietnam to serve one more tour each, all the while maintaining the utmost discretion about their illegal marriage. 

Sam works long shifts at the evac hospital, doing what she can to put broken and burned men back together again.  She is haunted by the death of her brother—she sees him in the men she treats—and is terrified that one day Jake will end up on a stretcher laid out before her in triage.

Sam discovers she is pregnant, and despite the death and danger around them, Sam and Jake decide Sam will stay at Chu Lai for the first two months of her pregnancy. Jake’s tour will end six months later, in time for the birth of the baby. But seven weeks into her pregnancy, as Sam is planning to tell her superiors, the Viet Cong and NVA launch the Tet Offensive. Sam is wounded on the first night of Tet and is sent home. 

Two weeks later, Jake’s chopper goes down. No bodies are found, only blood trails. 

Is he alive? Has he been captured? Sam is left to wonder, and to wait. When her son is born--a son who has the same coal-black hair as Jake--she wonders what she will tell him about his father’s fate. And what will she believe for herself? 
 

The Deer's Ashes

The air of the late Southern summer was thick and heavy, more like soup than air, but I didn’t mind. The shade of the trees by the river was cool; the sun barely peeked through their thick leaves to the ground below. I shifted in my hammock, closed my eyes, and took a deep breath. The sounds of the river rushing next to me, the wind rustling through the trees above, and the muffled sounds of voices walking up and down the path always calmed my heart...

Maddie Sam is a twenty-six-year-old bisexual artist, four years out of college and still working at the local coffee shop downtown. She has a vague relationship with Zadie, who is still in the closet and insists she's going to marry a good ol' boy one day. Suddenly, someone from Maddie Sam's past arrives in town, not entirely by accident.

As I passed the small used bookstore, I saw a faded blue Nissan truck across the street with stickers all along the bumper. I paused and looked at it, and in a rush the memories all came back, bright as day, overwhelming me.

Getting to Goal

All her life, people have been telling Beni she's too - too tall, too serious, too honest. The only girl on her high school's ice hockey team, she refused to listen. Her team captain loved that she was too determined to know when to quit, so why did the rest of the school matter?

When a public school versus private school match ends with her knocking the priveleged star player down and scoring the winning goal, Beni hoped it would be a turning point where the few teammates still grumbling about her position on the team would change their minds, but having caught the attention of a guy too goodlooking and too rich to have any common sense, Beni finds her love of hockey and self tested.
