Lindsey thought she knew who her father was. But when she finds a photo of her mother with a man she doesn't recognize, dated nine months before her birth, she realizes that the man who raised her wasn't her father after all. She wonders what kept the man in the photo from coming back to her mother, and she sets off to find out more about him. She learns that his name was Steve Nathan, and he was an American operative in the Vietnam War. Missing, presumed dead.

Nate has grown up knowing who his f

I won this book from Goodreads. If I could give it TEN stars, I would do so! It is a novel...but it is so real, I wanted to ask the author if she was (secretly) Lindsey! This novel did so many things..taught me all kinds of things about Vietnam, and about what the Vietnamese call "the American war". I thought I knew so much about it, but I have learned that I didn't know what I thought I knew! It also made me cry, because it is a very, very sad story. And, the end is so unexpected! If you have a ...more

"What Really Happened to Steve Nathan" is an engaging novel about two people looking for answers about their shared father. I won’t go into the details of the plot because I don’t want to give spoilers, and the books’ description does a fine job of it. Suffice it to say that the plot is strong and the narration and dialog pulled me along throughout the story. The author did several things that I found really effective. She’s telling the story from the perspective of two different characters, who ...more

A gripping page-turner that you won't be able to put down!

Mary's writing captivates you from the first sentence and doesn't let go until the last. Her vivid descriptions of Vietnam, its culture, people, and history are as compelling as the mystery of "What really happened to Steve Nathan?" If you love the kind of story that engages you thoroughly and leaves you thinking about it for days afterward then you'll LOVE this book. I'll be standing by, anxiously waiting for Mary's next novel!

People fascinate me. All kinds of people. I like to imagine getting into their heads and seeing life through their eyes. I also like to garden, cook, read, go to the movies, theater, concerts, play with my granddaughters, hike, do yoga, and laugh with my friends (in no particular order.)

I have a degree in English Literature and have been a feature writer for a newspaper, a technical writer at IBM,
