    The Ship of Brides characters ë 107 The Ship of BridesI don't think I would have picked this up by myself the synopsis didn't sound all too exciting to me but I got the book gifted to me by someone who knows how much I loved Me Before You I definitely need to remember to give this person a massive 'Thank you' nowI was majorly surprised by how interesting I found the entire journey The plot is very linear there are no big surprises or plot twists However I was still glued to the pages due to the wonderful and realistic characters I fe

    The Ship of Brides characters ë 107 The Ship of Brides25 StarsThis is my fifth Jojo Moyes novel and unfortunately the only one I thought would never endThe storyline is GREAT based on actual historical events of post WW2 war brides traveling aboard a naval warship to reunite with their husbands in England I also enjoyed reading the newspaper and journal entries posted at the beginning of each chapter but other than Frances' and Nicol's story I am sorry to say it was pretty much slow going with confusin

    The Ship of Brides characters ë 107 The Ship of BridesWhat a wonderful book that I've just finished One of those that really mean something It was a pleasure to read this book the first of Jo Jo Moyes that I have had the pleasure to read This is a beautiful story that is based on a factual voyage each chapter starts with an non fictional extract based on experiences of war brides or those who served on the 'Victorious'The year is 1946 and almost 700 war brides are making their way to England the war is over We follow a group of gals who have so many stories to tell Maggie feisty girl of the land Lovely Avice society girl vein and focused on things not so important Annoying My favourite just Frances capable nurse who has survived a horrible upbringing A treasure We learn about life on board in trying times and the crew that is charged with getting our brides there safe and sound
