The Ship of Brides

A Novel

This book can be downloaded and read in Apple Books on your Mac or iOS device.

Description

From the New York Times bestselling author of Me Before You and One Plus One, in an earlier work available in the U.S. for the first time, a post-WWII story of the war brides who crossed the seas by the thousands to face their unknown futures

1946. World War II has ended and all over the world, young women are beginning to fulfill the promises made to the men they wed in wartime.

In Sydney, Australia, four women join 650 other war brides on an extraordinary voyage to England—aboard HMS Victoria, which still carries not just arms and aircraft but a thousand naval officers. Rules are strictly enforced, from the aircraft carrier’s captain down to the lowliest young deckhand. But the men and the brides will find their lives intertwined despite the Navy’s ironclad sanctions. And for Frances Mackenzie, the complicated young woman whose past comes back to haunt her far from home, the journey will change her life in ways she never could have predicted—forever.

The Ship of Brides

Not my favorite Jojo novel; slow and rather anticlimactic.

Wonderful Book!

This was the first Jojo Moyes book I read, and I absolutely loved it! It was a topic I never really thought about - war brides - but I was drawn in to the story. I also appreciated one of the morals - not to be judgmental. I don't recommend a lot of books, but this is one I did.

Slow to start but I fell in love!

I had trouble getting into this one - lots of characters to remember and just slow to start overall - but about 100 pages in I couldn't put it down! Loved the characters and learning about that period in history! Truly enjoyed it and glad I pushed through until it got really good.
