Kristin Hannah’s The Women is headed to the big screen, Deadline reports.

Hannah’s novel, scheduled for publication on Feb. 6 by St. Martin’s, follows a 20-year-old nursing student who, in 1965, joins the Army Nurse Corps to serve in Vietnam. A critic for Kirkus called the novel “a dramatic, vividly detailed reconstruction of a little-known aspect of the Vietnam War.”

Warner Bros. Motion Picture Group acquired the rights to Hannah’s novel with plans to adapt it as a movie.

The Women won’t be the first novel by Hannah to get a screen adaptation. Her 2008 book, Firefly Lane, about the long friendship between two women in the Pacific Northwest, formed the basis for a Netflix television series created by Maggie Friedman and starring Katherine Heigl, Sarah Chalke, and Ben Lawson. The series was a hit for the streaming service but fared less well with critics.

Hannah shared news of the adaptation of The Women on Instagram, writing, “SO EXCITED to finally share the amazing news that @wbpictures has bought #thewomen to be on the big screen. So excited for this story about the nurses who served in Vietnam to be seen as well as read. Woo hoo! As soon as the book is out (Feb 6), we can start fangirl casting!”
