Publisher's Summary

As a motorcycle dispatch rider in London during World War II, Maggie Cameron faced her share of dangerous situations. Yet none filled her with as much dread as the thought of moving to America to join her GI husband, John MacPhee, after having been separated for six months. Except for the beautiful Blue Ridge Mountains, everything in Lilac is different from her beloved Scotland. How long before John discovers his Scottish bride is completely unsuited for life as a banker’s wife?  

Life in the orderly MacPhee household has been completely upended since John’s return from the war. His father’s sudden injury puts John in charge at work and at home, leaving little time for battle scars to heal. Will Maggie forgive him for dragging her away from the country she loves and into his chaotic life?

Sweet Story

This was the perfect little listen while I spent several hours on the road for work. The characters were wonderfully narrated and they held my attention to the finish. I could have listened much longer.

Cute WWII time period with a spunky main character

His Scottish War Bride by Pamela Ferguson is the story of an American GI, John, and his Scottish bride Maggie. Maggie and John met and were married during the war. Once John returns stateside, Maggie arrives to live with John in Lilac. She's spunky, opinionated, and not ready to become a complacent, dutiful bankers wife, which is what she's afraid John is looking for, isn't it? This is a cute story and a quick listen. The characters have fun, unique personalities and if you're a fan of Pamela Ferguson's stories, I'd definitely check this one out. That being said, Mercy Me, another one of Ms. Ferguson's stories taking place in Lilac, was more up my alley. While this one was definitely cute, Mercy Me just caught my attention a bit more. So I'd recommend checking that out out too!

Rebecca Fine did a good job with the narration and she brought the characters to life. She voiced the various accents well and was easy to listen to. I was voluntarily provided this free review copy audiobook by the author, narrator, or publisher for an honest review.

Fun, sweet

This novella was a lot of fun to read, it gave a really interesting glimpse into life as a war bride going to live overseas with a husband that you only had a short time with.

The descriptions were really well done, it was easy to picture the characters and what was happening. The characters were also well done, especially for a book this length, they were very realistic.

The narration was excellent, the character voices sounded real including the male voices and the pacing was spot on.

I'd love to read more of these with the brides arriving to all different kinds of welcomes. In this book everything works out well, but in real life war brides ended up in all kinds of marriages from loving to well... ones to be regretted, it would be good to see different experiences shown in books like this one.

I received a free copy of this book from the author and/or narrator and/or publisher and I voluntarily wrote this honest review.

WWII Era Delightful Romantic Story!

It's nice to read such a delightful story! I usually read the darker stuff - true crime, hauntings, etc so this was a refreshing change. So sweet, I loved this. It's not very long, but it's definitely great and worth the money or credit. It's a fairly common thing in today's world, coming to a new place to try and fit in with a lot of things that are different. It's one of those ones that makes you smile. Great story, great narration :)

A Sweet Romance with a Lot of Heart

A completely sweet and beautiful romance, I quickly came to love both Maggie and John. The writer makes the story have depth and a loveliness about it that just feels right. There are some Christian undertones, and everything is pitch perfect. The story encouraged me to think about WWII in a way I never had before, and I feel all the better for it. This is a voluntary review of a copy gifted by the author, and I highly recommend it. Both be writing and did narration is worth all the stars.

WWII Bride and Her American Husband

Beginning on ship entering New York Harbor at the end of WWII, the ship is full of brides who married American soldier’s over seas. Some welcomed, some not. This story is about Maggie a Scottish free and loving spirit going to America to reunite with John who now works in a bank.
It’s fascinating learning about the effects of WWII, the brides, and return to civilian life.
Loved the story..a wonderful couple..Sweet, fun, educational..Fantastic
The Scottish accent was great and the emotions perfect.

Lovely Story!

Maggie is a World War II bride who emigrates to the United States from
Scotland to meet her new husband, John. She doubts she will be able to
fit in with her new family and town but wont compromise her values.
John’s family improves their moral character and outlook because of
their interactions with Maggie. This was a lovely story. The ending was
rather abrupt. I was gifted a copy of this audiobook in exchange for an
honest review.

Loved the story. Great narration.

What an upbeat story His Scottish Bride is! At just over 2 hours long, there is no time to delve into the many of the issues these characters face, but the story had sufficient depth to feel the fears, hopes and love for each other than Maggie and John felt.

Rebecca Fine’s narration was wonderful. Her character voices felt genuine, and both her male and female voices were done extremely well. The tone and pacing were spot on. I particularly liked the voice of Maggie; she sounded so optimistic even having lived through what were undoubtedly very hard times.
