FORMATION A Woman's Memoir of Stepping Out of Line

by | Read by Ryan Leigh Dostie

Biography & Memoir • 12.5 hrs. • Unabridged • © 2019

Ryan Dostie pulls no punches in narrating her raw, mesmerizing memoir. She entered the army right after high school because it seemed to be the road to freedom for a young woman raised in a strict Christian community. What she discovered in her military experience was alcohol, and what followed was a rape that no one believed happened because she had had too much to drink at the time. She keeps her emotions in check when she speaks of her service in Iraq and the rape, but the tension in her voice suggests her subsequent struggles with PTSD. Dostie provides a compelling account of experiences that are all too common among women in our nation's military. E.E.S. © AudioFile 2019, Portland, Maine [Published: SEPTEMBER 2019]
