    Inhaltsangabe

    Captain Sabine Fleischer is a skilled and dedicated US Army surgeon deployed to a combat hospital in Afghanistan. She is also one of the thousands of troops who are forced to serve in silence because of the military's anti-gay policy of "Don't Ask, Don't Tell (DADT)". 

    Usually driven and focused, Sabine finds that battles raging both inside and outside the perimeter walls are making it more and more difficult for her to deal with her emotions. Dealing with loss and mortality, lack of privacy, sleep deprivation, loneliness, and the isolation forced on her by Don't Ask, Don't Tell are all taking their toll. Plus, her long-term relationship with a civilian back home is quickly becoming another casualty of war. 

    Colonel Rebecca Keane is an enigmatic career officer who runs the surgical unit like clockwork. Well-liked and respected by those who work with and under her, she walks a fine line to preserve the military's chain of command while connecting with those under her care and supervision. Sabine knows the colonel is way off-limits but can't help fantasizing about her. Especially when she starts picking up unspoken cues - a stolen glance, a secret smile, an "accidental" brush of hands. Or is it just wishful thinking? After all, Rebecca's wedding ring shines almost as brightly as her deep blue eyes....

    Lieblingsgeschichte

    ok, zugegeben, die Geschichte ist etwas vorhersehbar, zumindest teilweise, dennoch avanciert sie zu meiner Lieblingsgeschichte. Dazu trägt ganz klar auch die Sprecherin mit ihrer wandelbaren und "offenen" Vortragsweise bei.
    Die Charaktere besitzen ausreichend Komplexität, um glaubhafte und tiefgeündig zu erscheinen ohne sich dabei in unnötigen Twisten zu verlieren.

    A different World

    I was looking to read something completely different when I stumbled upon the books of E.J. Noyes. I bought two books right away and I read "Alone" for starters but I could not warm up to it.
    Just as I thought I made the wrong choice, I gave this book a go, as I wanted to know more about the "Don't ask, don't tell" policy. I am so happy I did!
    What an insightful and moving story. The characters are likeable and easy to fall in love with. The military insight is impacable and the stories truthfully depict the horrors and challenges of army life and the choices that one has to make.
    It is a story of love, friandship and immense bravery.
    I would wholeheartedly recomend it. The German links are cute.
    The narrator is perfect.
    I am already on Book 2!!!!! My 3rd E.J. Noyes purchase in a week....

    Insightful

    👉🏻 This was an interesting read about the "Don't Ask, Don't Tell" policy in the US military, as well as the life in combat. Even though I liked the beginning, it felt like this story didn't live up to its full potential.

    💡 The story is about Captain Sabine Fleischer, who serves her 2nd time in the military and is stationed in Afghanistan. She's a surgeon and non-stop on duty calls. Her superior is Colonel Rebecca Keane who's working with her in the operating theatre. The captain seems to be very fond of the Colonel but doesn't act on it as she's in a relationship with Victoria.
    But Sabine's life is turned upside down when her girlfriend of 9-years breaks up with her while she's serving her time in Afghanistan. This causes immense emotional distress and leads to that the Colonel sends her home to the States for 2 weeks to solve personal issues. On one of her last days at home, something happens which makes it even harder for her to fly back to the military base. Literally, everything changes afterwards and so the outcome of her future life.

    I feel that some parts in the book were so slow and so extremely detailed while others feel so rushed and fast-paced. It bothered me because I liked to get these kinds of insights into what it must have been to be in the military as a queer person during the DADT policy. Also what happens to Sabine in the last third of the book was shocking and felt heart-breaking. I really don't wanna know how it must feel to be in that situation.

    ♥️ This story wasn't bad – I guess it just wasn't for me but I was glad I read it nevertheless.

    Amazing

    Good story, interesting details, part of real life. The narrator Abby Craden did an amazing job. Recommandation.

    One of the best lesbian romances

    5 stars. I just listened to it the second time and this reminded me why this is one of my favorite books.

    First, Abby Craden. I know that many consider „Alone“ as her masterpiece, but Ask, Tell is every bit as good.

    And then, Rebecca Kean. She is so one of my favorite characters. In my memories, when I first read the book, Sabine and Bec didn‘t have that much intraction. But that so wasn‘t true.

    But let me start at the beginning.

    Major Sabine Fleischer is a surgeon deployed in Afghanistan. She has
    had a crush on her boss, Colonel Rebecca Kean, for ages. She has never acted on it though, obviously because „Don‘t ask, don‘t tell“ is firmly in place, and more importantly, Sabine is attached to her girlfried Vic.
    Things between them haven‘t been great for a while though, but when Victoria ends things, Sabine is literally crushed. Her pride is wounded, she misses her cats deeply, and what person ends a nine year relationship via letter after having cheated on her for years! She can only confide in her best friend Mitch, who is also gay. But because of DADT, she can‘t talk to anyone else, not to her roommate Aimee, and especially not to her boss. Colonel Kean tries her best to show she cares for Sabine. That‘s really all I can say without any spoilers.

    Have I meantioned that Rebecca Kean is one of my favorite characters ever? Emphatic, intelligent, confident, caring, and oh so sexy. In true Emily Noyes fashion, this book is told in first person, by Sabine, and so we see Sabine through her eyes. They are one of those couples who are truly meant to be and you just know it‘s the real thing.

    This is not an easy book. The military and war play a major role, and Sabine also is a very complex character. I really liked that. Also the secondary characters are well crafted and I very much enjoyed her sister Jana‘s story in „If the shoe fits“.

    All in all, it‘s one hell of a journey that I thouroughly enjoyed. Plus, Emily Noyes and Abby Craden are a match made in heaven...
