Overview

Imagine you're a young British or European woman caught up in the dramatic reality of war. You fall in love with and marry a soldier from a foreign country. When the war ends, you leave behind all you've ever known — family, friends, and way of life — for a new life in Canada. This is the story of nearly two thousand war brides who made their way to New Brunswick to join their servicemen husbands at the end of the Second World War. Arriving in a mainly rural province, these city girls faced culture shock, and social, religious and linguistic differences that would have tested the mettle of many relationships. More than sixty years later, their stories paint a compelling portrait of love, passion, perseverance, and hope in a world torn apart by war.
