The Look

Jacquelyn Brown

Don't be too eager to shrug a cold shoulder at a stranger, It might Be the first and only time you see that person. But that person, over time, may change the course of your life in a wondrous, incredible way that can only be seen with hindsight. "The Look" is based on a true short story by the same title; the true story of a trauma nurse on the edge of burning out when she runs into a mysterious Marine at a convenience store on a stormy night in 1989. The look that passes between them sends them back to hell where love once lived. That brief encounter laid the foundation for "The Look" and now, after a sixteen years journey, to be where it is today...in your hands. "The Look" is not about the Vietnam War. It is about the relationships that take place during the war. In the bowels of Vietnam''s hell where soldiers fight to live and medical personnel fight against death, love can find its way into the hearts of lovers, friends, and warrior comrades. Falling in love under wartime conditions does not permit the luxury and the formalities that comes with romantic courtship. Where there is life, death is close by. Where there is love, there is hate trying to stomp it out. But hate and death have no victory over those sweethearts, wives, friends, and fighting comrades. Love cannot be conquered... it conquers. This is what "The Look" is all about.
