“We must do more to increase awareness of our women veterans’ place in history,” said Hughes, inspired to write In a Heartbeat by her mother’s WWII service. “Women, since the beginning of their military service, volunteered to serve on the land, at sea, and in the air. They served in dangerous places, came home wounded and died in defense of the truths we knew at the time of their service. This book is my effort to place women veterans’ service front and center.”
