A Vietnam war story written from the perspective of young wives left in the US as their soldier husbands are either missing in action or held prisoner in North Vietnam.

An unvarnished account, including how the military bureaucracy attempted to "guide" the responses of the women - "always act positively and bravely", etc. Some women persevered, some did not, and some who did hold on to the end and got their husbands back, did not receive a happy ending.
