Description

A stunning exploration of hope and desire, fear and control, this story is full of heart and heartbreak'
ASHLEY HAY, author of The Railwayman's Wife

'A compelling novel about the bruises inflicted by fate and by ourselves, and the blessings to be found in resilience, determination, and love.'
DEBRA ADELAIDE, author of The Household Guide to Dying

Sarah and Hannah are on a cruise from San Diego, California to Sydney, Australia. Sarah, Hannah's grandmother, is returning to the country of her birth, a place she hasn't seen since boarding the USS Mariposa in 1945. Then she, along with countless other war brides, sailed across the Pacific to join the American servicemen they'd married during World War II. 

Now Hannah is the same age Sarah was when she made her first journey, and in hearing Sarah tell the story of her life, realises the immensity of what her grandmother gave up.

The Passengers is a luminous novel about love: the journeys we undertake, the sacrifices we make and the heartache we suffer for love It is about how we most long for what we have left behind. And it is about the past - how close it can still feel - even after long passages of time.

'Two women, two generations, two countries, two journeys. Eleanor Limprecht gracefully navigates the crosscurrents of history and creates vibrant characters from the extraordinary true experiences of Australian war brides. Sarah and Hannah's urgent search for love and wholeness moved me in both senses: they touched my heart and I still feel I am churning across the Pacific with them. A deeply satisfying novel.'
SUSAN WYNDHAM, former literary editor, The Sydney Morning Herald

Customer Reviews

Courageous women

A great insight to the journey taken by war brides to the USA. You could feel their excitement for adventure, their uncertainty of the future and their struggle to overcome homesickness. I felt the grand daughter’s character wandered and didn’t go anywhere. I loved the story line but the ending or lack of ending, either uplifting or disheartening, was really disappointing.

Beautiful

This book is it is interesting and beautifully written, so I was captivated and moved.
