A Soldier's Wish

A Soldier's Wish Review

The year is 1969…

Gary Fairchild is proud to be a hippie college student, and he protests the Vietnam War because he believes in love and peace. To him, it isn’t just a counterculture movement—it’s a way of life. When tickets to the Aquarium Exposition—3 Days of Peace & Music, or Woodstock, as it was better known, go on sale, there’s no way he isn’t going.

Richard Ronsman is a sheltered farm boy who lives in the shadow of his overbearing father. He’s hidden his darkest secret to earn his father’s love, but nothing is ever good enough—not even volunteering for the Vietnam War. And with just a few days left before he’s deployed, a striking hippie invites him to join them at a music festival.

Three days of music, drugs, rain, mud, and love forged a bond between these two very different men that would shape the rest of their lives. They share dreams and fears, and when Richard is shipped off to war, they share letters and love. For Richard’s first Christmas home, he is gifted a special angel ornament that just might make a soldier’s wish come true.

    I have never read a romance that takes place during the Woodstock and the Vietnam War. I requested A Soldier's Wish because of it but was also afraid it could be the reason I wouldn't enjoy it. It is ...

    N.R. Walker is one of the only author's that can take a story that includes one of the MC's going to war, to Vietnam, and still managing to make the story fluffy. There was angst, to be sure, but the ...

    4.5 StarsHow in the hell do I review this? Maybe it's because I'm partial to the setting (supposedly I was AT Woodstock seeing as my mom was pregnant with me at the time) or maybe it was the constant ...

    I should know by now not to start an NR Walker book before bed. There is no "one more page" or "one more chapter" with Walker's books and me - it's "whelp, I'm going to be tired and bitchy tomorrow at...

    This is not a typical holiday read, having more angst than usual. But that made it more meaningful to me. I loved this story of the gentle soldier who went to Vietnam to escape his oppressive parents ...
