    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....

    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...
