"Individual responsibility is the central theme of this earnest allegorical tale of a young American who recalls the events leading to his capture...during the Vietnamese war. Scott's parable...presents the brutality of war in a narrative voice that is almost childlike in its deliberate simplicity." --Publishers Weekly
"The singing lilt of Scott's clear narrative reflects her background as an accomplished poet. She has peppered the story with metaphors and similes that are stunning. A medevac helicopter, carrying away one of Charlie's dead platoon-mates, for example, goes 'sobbing its way across the treetops.' Her meticulous research is reflected in the conversations of her soldiers. They talk the language of the war. The combat scenes, too, ring true... Scott is believable. She doesn't stumble. She has crafted an unusually graceful war story that depicts the experiences of young soldiers in Vietnam. It is a prodigious feat for a writer...and it is a reflection of her enormous talent." --Stan Sirmans, in The Veteran
