War Brides by Helen Bryan

War BridesWar Brides by Helen Bryan
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

I enjoyed this interesting look at war time in rural England. The story centers around a group of woman who all find themselves in a small rural English village during World War II. The women come from a variety of backgrounds, including an American, a jew who escaped the Nazi's, a poor London resident evacuated to the country, a local girl and a rich slightly spoiled young woman sent to the country to 'stay out of trouble, yet they all somehow come together as unlikely friends while they survive the struggles of war and even devise a plan for a daring rescue. There are romances in the story, but the main focus is the relationship between these woman. The characters are interesting, and the story offers a genuine look at the untold story of war through the eyes of women, but for me the ending fell a little flat. If you like historical fiction, you will enjoy War Brides.
