All the romance, danger and real-life adventures of the war brides who came to Australia to make a new life, from the First and Second World Wars to Korea and Vietnam.

Popular journalist and author Carol Fallows recreates the urgency and immediacy of wartime romance - the humour and bittersweet moments of the first meeting, the anxious watching and waiting for news of soldier-sweethearts at the front, and the exciting - and terrifying - journey to a strange new land.

But reaching Australia was just the beginning. As the brides stepped off the cramped transports and into their soldiers' arms, they were also embracing the challenge of carving out a new life, with an unknown and often hostile family, new language, unfamiliar culture, climate and food.

Interwoven against the backdrop of the larger historical, political and social events taking place on the world stage and in Australian itself, these stories bring to life another place and another time both for those who lived through it and those who followed. Inspired by her own parents' incredible romance, Fallows is passionate about sharing these extraordinary stories before they are lost forever.
