“The Ship of Brides: A Novel” is a good book that you can read online or download to read it later. 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.
Brief Summary The Ship of Brides by Jojo Moyes
This was an interesting and enjoyable book. I was not aware of the ships of brides which took so many women to UK to be with British servicemen they had married during shore leave in WW2. Nor was I aware of the extent that those small island of Indonesia played a role during the war.The characters were all believable and Jojo Moyes did a great job involving them in their individual and joint storylines. I can imagine how hard it was for the captain to try to contain the crew and be able to keep 600 women entertained on long journey like that on a ship not built for that role. For the women, the initial excitement of heading to new country to be with their husbands suddenly became fear that they may end up unwanted with rumors and gossip spreading like wildfire. For the crew, keeping themselves contained was an obvious struggle.
