The Fourteenth of September is a powerful book about the Vietnam War during the 1969-1970 lottery drafts and it’s written from the female perspective. The protagonist’s journey represents the complexity of every generation’s timeless effort to align conscience with action.
This debut novel, neither idealistic nor fatalistic, offers the unique perspective of a young woman facing her own private rebellion to follow what she believes is right or to follow what is expected of her.
While women in their 50s were a bit young to fully experience the Vietnam War, they have lived in it’s aftermath. This time period in the US shaped modern feminism and represents a time when female empowerment was at it’s height.
