I really enjoyed this book. As my mother in law was also a war bride, I found the story an interesting view of another was brides journey.

This is the 5th book I've read by Moyes and I didn't enjoy it nearly as much as the others. It was an interesting concept, but the execution fell short. It dragged a bit from time to time, but it wasn't horrible.
