War Brides

( 22 )

Overview

As war moves ever closer, the sleepy English village of Crowmarsh Priors settles into a new sort of normal: Evacuees from London are billeted in local homes. The nightly German air raids become grimly mundane. Rationing curtails every comfort. Men leave to fight and die.

Overview

As war moves ever closer, the sleepy English village of Crowmarsh Priors settles into a new sort of normal: Evacuees from London are billeted in local homes. The nightly German air raids become grimly mundane. Rationing curtails every comfort. Men leave to fight and die. And five women forge a bond of friendship that will change their lives forever in this engrossing novel of loyalty, loss, and love in the shadow of World War II.

With the hardships of war intensifying every day, the women band together to defeat formidable enemies and find remarkable strength within themselves to help one another. It is a war-forged loyalty certain to endure years and distance.

When four of the women return for a celebration fifty years later, their mission is not simply to commemorate or remember. They’ve returned to confront a traitor whose actions cost countless lives—and to avenge one of their own at last.

    This is the reason I am considering ditching my Nook and getting a Kindle. Books I want are available on Kindle but not for Nook. Also, if the books I want are available, they are more expensive than the Kindle version. Please, B&N, I prefer the Nook over Kindle, but you are tying my hands.

    Learned a bit

    I would have loved to give this book five stars but it didn't quite cler the bar. Granted, keeping five stories going is a challenge to even the best pro and there were times when I wasn't sure whose head I was in. Switching POV within the same page, without a hiatus, makes it difficult for the reader. Still, I did learn some things about the situation on the home front in England during WWIi. Would I read her other book, the one on Martha Washington? Possibly.

    B&N should extract any reviews where the reader complains about the availability of the book. I found the book to be a dud. I didn't care about many of the characters and found them boring. I kept hoping the book would get better. Even the ending was ho hum. I would not recommend this to serious readers or book clubs.

    Good story but needs polished

    The storyline flows well and for the most part is well written. It could be further edited to polish the book up and make it easier to read. It was a good story an kept my attention.

    Very Good

    I enjoyed this book and the ending caught me completely by surprise. The characters were believable - but I wish there was more about the twin girls. Guess I just like happy endings.

    For those complaining about this book not being on Nook - look at the Publisher.  It is Amazon.  They don't have to make it available on Nook if they do not want to.  BN does a great job.  We have over 2 million books available on Nook, and the Nook device is the best e-reader out there.  Regarding the book War Brides, it is a very interesting story.  I recommend it.

    I really enjoyed this book (on my Kindle) and wanted to get it for a family member's Nook as a gift, but it is not available. I'm disappointed...I had not realized that the Nook had fewer choices than the Kindle.

    Good

    This book was very good. I liked the characters and the tie ins. I appreciate the reality of what went on in those war years, and as time goes by I think society forgets what people went through during that war. We read this for our book club at work. My only negative comment is about the ending. I think it could have been a little more detailed, more personable, a little longer. One would have liked more insight into the lives and the discoveries of the past.

    Great Historical Fiction!

    This is a great historical read! The storyline takes place in England during the blitz and the government evacuates mothers and children to the country because they expect to soon be at war with Germany. It was through these evacuations that five women met ...."the War Brides." The story begins in 1995 at the 50th anniversary - VE Day with the women who lived through this darkest hour. These war brides were being reunited in their wartime home of Crowmarsh Priors, England, to relive their experiences during the war and to reflect on how the war impacted their lives. I highly recommend this book!

    Very good!

    This book was a good surprise. It's about a group of young women in England during WWII. The story flowed well and really kept my interest. It switched from a present day reunion to the war years. I really enjoyed reading it.
