Love. Betrayal. New Beginnings.
A young English war bride makes a new life in Australia in this romantic story set on the stunning coast of Sydney, by the author of The Soldier's Wife.
January 1920. Young Englishwoman Margaret Dalton is full of excitement as she arrives to begin a new life in the warm, golden land of Australia. She leaves behind the horrors of WWI and can't wait to see her husband, Frank, after two years' separation. But when Margaret's ship docks, Frank isn't there to greet her, and Margaret is informed that he already has a wife....
Devastated, Margaret must swap her hopes and dreams for the reality of living and working in a strange new city. And just as a growing friendship with army sergeant Tom McBride gives her a steady person to rely on, news arrives that Frank may not have abandoned her. Where should Margaret's loyalties lie: with the old life or with the new?
Inspired by the true stories of war wives who arrived in Australia, The War Bride is a gorgeously romantic story by the author of The Soldier's Wife.

Can't wait to hear what happens next!
The War Bride ranks up among the top stories that I've read.
Would love to see it in a movie form too.
The fact that I was always eager to hear what would happen next !
Her narration is very good. I really enjoyed how she 'personalised' each character with the change in her tone for each ones voice
Yes, there were moments of different emotions - laugh, cry, anger too.
I'm sure that readers will enjoy the War Bride as much as I have.
