Publisher Description

A moving novel based on a true story, by Jojo Moyes, internationally bestselling author of Me Before You, After You and the new bestseller Still Me.

****

'Brimming over with friendship, sadness, humour and romance, as well as several unexpected plot twists, it's a tremendously satisfying read and (for my money) even better than ... Me Before You.' - Daily Mail

Australia, 1946. 650 brides are departing for England to meet the men they married in wartime. But instead of the luxury liner they were expecting, they find themselves aboard an aircraft carrier, alongside a thousand men.

On the sun-baked decks, old loves and past promises become distant memories, and tensions are stretched to the limit as brides and husbands change their minds. And for Frances Mackenzie, one bride in particular, it soon becomes clear that sometimes the journey is more important than the destination.

The ship of brides

I have read all of jojo moyes recent books and have loved them all. I decided to try one of the first books that she wrote to see how good they were. Wow is about all I can say. I was gripped to this book from the first paragraph and actually felt that I was onboard that ship. The knowledge regarding that passage was amazing and I really thoroughly enjoyed the book
