They called it R&R. It was supposed to be romantic, a week's vacation from the war, a second honeymoon for soldiers and their wives, an idyll of rest and recuperation courtesy of the U.S. Army. But for three women who meet while flying to join their husbands in Honolulu - a Berkeley student who is an avid anti-war protester, the African-American wife of a career soldier who worries about managing a family in the military, and a pregnant San Francisco hippie who sees facets of her husband that terrify her - many things have changed since the men went off to Vietnam and those changes have traveled to Hawaii, too. Aspirations and ideals are colliding; nothing is going as smoothly as they'd hoped. The men - a draftee committed to advancing civil rights after his service, an ambitious Master Sergeant determined to promote his career, and a battle-hardened corporal called Super Snipe by his peers - have trouble adjusting to the quick trip to Paradise. As the women struggle to repair the damage that the war has inflicted on their plans for the future, one of the men sets out on a quest for vengeance that has nothing to do with romance, or even rest and recuperation, and their R&R becomes too much like the war itself - a matter of life and death. R&R was inspired by the personal experience of its authors. Stephen Greenleaf wrote the John Marshall Tanner series of detective novels and the courtroom dramas The Ditto List and Impact. Ann Greenleaf is the author/illustrator of several books for children. This is their first collaboration. f "Mr. Greenleaf is a real writer with a real talent." The New Yorker.
