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. New York Times bestselling author Jojo Moyes delivers another historical romance to fall for in THE SHIP OF BRIDES (Penguin E-book; On-sale May 27, 2014; $9.99; 978-0-69-8156340), an earlier work now available in the U.S. for the first time.
In Sydney, Australia, four women join 650 other war brides on an extraordinary voyage to England—aboard HMS Victoria, which carries not just arms and aircraft, but a thousand naval officers. Rules are strictly enforced, 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, the journey will change her life in ways she never could have predicted—forever.
