Reader recommendation: War Brides

Monitor readers share their favorite book picks.


War Brides, by Lois Battle, follows the lives of three Australian women who marry US servicemen during World War II as they attempt to adapt to life in America. “War Brides” has rich character development, thoroughly researched details, and a story that kept me reaching for the book. I now have a new favorite author.
