After thoroughly enjoying The Sugar Girls, I was excited to see that the authors had a new book coming out and preordered it at once. History books are not usually my chosen genre, but I have a soft spot for social history and this is social history at it's finest. I could not put this down! The author's have a great way of truly bringing Margaret's tale to life. The insights they give into the lives of the often forgotten women during war times are fascinating. I did not know anything about GI brides before reading this book, so it was certainly eye-opening to see the hardships Margaret (and I'm sure many other GI brides) faced. It's pretty harrowing and at times, a tragic story, but the epilogue provides a really lovely touch.

This is a truly enjoyable read. It's quite short, so I even read it again later in the day, as not to miss any details! I look forward to reading the rest of the stories when they are released.

Since reading the memoirs of a couple of close relatives who had recently deceased, I have been keen to read personal tales of "ordinary people" and their often unordinary lives. Margaret's story is often tragic and heart breaking, but is also filled with love. The story evokes life during the war and in Britain and the States. As a piece of social history it sheds light on how families coped with marriage, divorce, childbirth, domestic violence and addiction without any form of state support. A fascinating and moving read, I can't wait for the other stories to be released.

I liked the honesty of the character Margaret. It is unusual for the sister of an alcoholic to support her sister I. Law. It was well portrayed. Alcoholics have to be strong enough to really beat it. This story told how hard it is even when you have everything you really want.

good read as I can remember the Americans in Oxford mainly after the war,it was believable as some brides were soon home again,but also many have had a good life and have remained in USA with their families.

Lovely stories of what life was about in the 1940's, and the outcome of women who fell for the Americans with their flash attitude to life.
