Mia used to have a taste for thugs and hoodlums, but now she's moved on. All the thug life gave her was two fatherless children and a lifetime's worth of heartbreak. She's finally turned her life around and is making a go of it as a successful single mother when she gets a letter: Tyrone, the father of one of her children, is getting out of prison. He wants to get back in his son's life. Mia would have to be crazy to take him back . . . but this time, it seems the tiger really has changed its stripes. Or at least, he'd like her to believe he has.
A decade after America pulled out of Vietnam, the seeds of the often heart- wrenching oral history, A Piece of My Heart, were sown when writer and filmmaker Keith Walker met a woman who had been an emergency room nurse in Cu Chi and Da Nang. She and 25 others recount the time they spent "in country" as part of 15,000 American women who volunteered or served as nurses and in the military.NOTE: This edition does not include photographs.
