War Brides

Author(s): Fallows Carol

Second World War

Popular journalist and author Carol Fallows recreates the urgency and immediacy of these whirlwind wartime romances u the humour and bittersweet moments of the first meeting, the anxious watching and waiting for news of soldier-sweethearts at the front, and the exciting u and terrifying u journey to a strange new land. But reaching Australia was just the beginning. As the brides stepped off the cramped transports and into their soldiers' arms, they were also embracing the challenge of carving out a new life, with an unknown and often hostile family, new language, unfamiliar culture, climate and food. Inspired by her own parents' romance, Fallows is passionate about sharing these extraordinary stories before they are lost forever.
