Helen Austin’s new book, Like Shadows in the Corner, is now available in print form due to popular demand.
The book explores how wives coped while their soldier was fighting the war in Vietnam. Wives were invisible to the Armed Services and the community during this time and Helen’s book demonstrates these wives’ courage, tenacity and unending ability to manage under enormous pressure while they raised their children alone and went to work, waking up each morning not knowing if their husband would make it through his day. These women are strong and resilient.
