Description

Wartime intrigue spans the lives of three women - past and present - in this emotional novel from the acclaimed author of As Bright as Heaven.

February, 1946. World War Two is over, but the recovery from the most intimate of its horrors has only just begun for Annaliese Lange, a German ballerina desperate to escape her past, and Simone Deveraux, the wronged daughter of a French Résistance spy. 

Now the two women are joining hundreds of other European war brides aboard the renowned RMS Queen Mary to cross the Atlantic and be reunited with their American husbands. Their new lives in the United States brightly beckon until their tightly held secrets are laid bare in their shared stateroom. When the voyage ends at New York Harbor, only one of them will disembark.... 

Present day. Facing a crossroads in her own life, Brette Caslake visits the famously haunted Queen Mary at the request of an old friend. What she finds will set her on a course to solve a 70-year-old tragedy that will draw her into the heartaches and triumphs of the courageous war brides - and will ultimately lead her to reconsider what she has to sacrifice to achieve her own deepest longings.

Don't like ghost stories

What could have made this a 4 or 5-star listening experience for you?

If I had known it was about Ghost I would not have purchased. I think there needs to be something in description explaining that it is. Love the writer just not this story.

Only half of this book was good

If I could omit the "now" character Brete, it would be an ok book. Brete was a whining, annoying, pathetic, selfish character. The stories told from the past were much better.

I loved Secrets of a Charmed Life! But, don't get this book if you think it will be as good as that. I was disappointed.

Loved it!!

What a great story. All of them rolled into one makes such a good story. Also a lot to ponder and think on. And yes it had me too! Characters well done. Narrator excellent!! Loved the different stories the age and the feelings it evokes.

Spirits...

I love Susan’s books, but this one just sat uncomfortable with me talking about spirits. I’m a spiritual person, believe in spirits good and bad..just don’t want to “mess” with them.

LOVED This Book!! The only bad part was that it ended. Possibly my favourite historical fiction book yet. Loved the added ghostly part!!!

A ship, a ghost, and war brides

Any additional comments?

I adore Susan Meisner books...this one, however, was a bit difficult to get into at first but was interesting and engaging. She always does a great job of telling several stories in one book and tying them all together. I was a little underwhelmed with the main character but loved the women of the stories from the war.

Love all things Susan Meissner

I am not much for super natural, but still found this book worth the read!
