Praise for Finding Pete:

“Jill Hunting’s story seized my heart. Her narrative of her lost brother is so urgent and compelling—a peacemaker sacrificed in an obscure corner of a terrible war; the mystery surrounding his death; the vacuum created in the life of his surviving sister, who grew up, a journalist, to explore that loss as no one else could; her courageous and dogged quest, which has produced this eloquent and unforgettable book.”

—David Haward Bain, Middlebury College, author of Empire Express 

and Aftershocks

“Part memoir, part history, part biography, part travelogue, Jill Hunting’s Finding Pete provides a fascinating view into the early years of America’s war in Vietnam, and a reminder of how deeply this war and its losses continue to reverberate in the American psyche.”

—Laura Flynn, author of Swallow the Ocean

“With enormous empathy, Jill Hunting has created complicated and vital characters. Hunting takes us with her from a quiet American life in the Midwest to war-torn, grieving cities, uncovering the secret of her brother’s death and giving Pete’s history to all of us as she recovers it for herself. Finding Pete is a beautifully written history—of loss, love, and redemption. It is the story not only of one family’s private tragedy, but also of the larger heartbreak of war. Hunting shows us that if we look carefully and lovingly enough, we can find not only what we’ve lost, but also ourselves—often in the most unexpected places.”

—Rachel DeWoskin, author of Foreign Babes in Beijing and
