Imagine you're a young woman caught up in the ugly reality of war and you fall in love with a young soldier from a foreign country. You marry and when the war ends, you leave all you've ever known behind to begin a new life in Canada.
This is the story of hundreds of women who made their way to New Brunswick at the end of the Second World War. Between 1942 and 1948, young women from all over Europe came with their servicemen husbands to New Brunswick. In this compelling volume, wives, widows, fiancées, and those who and returned to Europe after failed marriages tell compelling stories of prejudice, perseverance, kindness, hope, defeat and triumph.Author: Melynda Jarratt
