The Ship of Brides: 'Brimming over with friendship, sadness, humour and romance, as well as several unexpected plot twists' - Daily Mail Kindle Edition
**From the bestselling author of The Last Letter from Your Lover, now a major motion picture**
A moving novel based on a true story, by Jojo Moyes, internationally bestselling author of Me Before You, After You and the new bestseller Still Me.
'Brimming over with friendship, sadness, humour and romance, as well as several unexpected plot twists, it's a tremendously satisfying read and (for my money) even better than ... Me Before You.' - Daily Mail
Australia, 1946. 650 brides are departing for England to meet the men they married in wartime. But instead of the luxury liner they were expecting, they find themselves aboard an aircraft carrier, alongside a thousand men.
On the sun-baked decks, old loves and past promises become distant memories, and tensions are stretched to the limit as brides and husbands change their minds. And for Frances Mackenzie, one bride in particular, it soon becomes clear that sometimes the journey is more important than the destination.

An enjoyable and indulgent page turner that reads less as a romance and more as a fairytale - The journey to true love is long and strewn with challenges, and the reader is left with imagining the "Happily Ever After".
The story follows four women from different backgrounds on their journeys with not always a successful outcome.
A really good read, recommended.
A brilliant story that grips right up until the final page.
Thanks once again for some fascinating escapism.
The story details the lives, both past and present, of four girls who share the same cabin for their six week voyage. Jojo brilliantly imagines the various things that occur, with many twists and turns to the plot, in turn uplifting or sad. I thoroughly enjoyed it as it was so different to much other contemporary fiction.
