The inspiration for the Merchant Ivory film starring Kris Kristofferson, Barbara Hershey, and Leelee Sobieski, A Soldier's Daughter Never Cries is a rich and poignant family story from the daughter of novelist James Jones (From Here to Eternity, The Thin Red Line). This brand new edition of Kaylie Jones's highly acclaimed third novel includes an author's introduction and a new chapter, "Mother's Day." Based on the author's early years in Paris with her famous father, A Soldier's Daughter Never Cries chronicles the growth of an extraordinary family. Previously the adored only child, Channe finds her world disrupted by the adoption of a French brother, Benoit. This inspired novel explores the complex, volatile relationships between a brother, a sister, a mother, and a father, as they confront their own experiences of orphanhood. Book jacket.
