January, 1920. Young Englishwoman Margaret Dalton is full of excitement as she arrives to begin a new life in the warm, golden land of Australia. She leaves behind the horrors of WWI and can't wait to see her husband, Frank, after two years' separation.

But when Margaret's ship docks, Frank isn't there to greet her and Margaret is informed that he already has a wife ...Devastated, Margaret must swap her hopes and dreams for the reality of living and working in a strange new city.

And just as a growing friendship with army sergeant Tom McBride gives her a steady person to rely on, news arrives that Frank may not have abandoned her. Where should Margaret's loyalties lie: with the old life or with the new? Inspired by the true stories of war wives who arrived in Australia, The War Bride is a gorgeously romantic story by the author of The Soldier's Wife.

    Pamela Hart makes the details of daily life shimmer and pierces our hearts with a love story that carries the weight of sacrifice - iBOOKS on THE SOLDIER'S WIFE

    Evokes WWI Sydney to the point where the reader can almost feel the salty wind blowing off the harbour as the troops are shipped out through the Heads - BOOKS+PUBLISHING on THE SOLDIER'S WIFE

    Deeply insightful into the lives of the women left behind in Sydney. We fell in love with the headstrong heroine Ruby. - BETTER READING on THE SOLDIER'S WIFE
