The Lotus Eaters by Tatjana Soli

The Lotus Eaters follows Helen Adams as a photojournalist in Vietnam from 1965 to 1975. At first she is naive, a woman in a man's profession, and startled by the violence and despair she sees. Sam Darrow is a Pulitzer Prize-winning photojournalist who goes from competitor to mentor to lover for Helen. Like many others, she is drawn by the intoxicating adrenaline rush of war reporting and is transformed by her experience. Linh, a Vietnamese assistant to Helen and Sam, sees the war through an entirely different set of eyes. Tatjana Soli's debut novel has received positive reviews with BookPage saying, "Soli's incredibly moving work comes to an expertly crafted conclusion, and her novel should serve as a fitting tribute to the people of Vietnam, the land itself, the soldiers who fought there and those individuals who seek to forever capture war's horrifying - and edifying - images."
