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?

Great Read

His Scottish War Bride was another great read by Pamela Ferguson. Maggie was a motorcycle dispatch rider in London during World War II. She moves to America to join her soldier husband John after they were separated for six months. John is a banker and Maggie is afraid that he will find out that she isn’t suited for life as a banker's wife. They both return to a very chaotic and hectic life. I enjoyed listening to Maggie and John's story. Rebecca Fine did a great job of narrating this book. I cant wait to read more by Pamela Ferguson.

Entertaining

I got this story via audiobook boom and this is my voluntary review. This was a fun way to get information about war brides. Magie was fortunate because her husband loved her. He also was not ashamed of the things she did and he allowed her to be her real self. This not only helped his family but all of the people she encountered. Her ideas helped his father to get up out of bed and join life again after breaking his leg. She also helped her friends back home. All in all a fun story. The narrator was good and made the story move along at a nice pace.

Wonderful Story & Listen🎧 Heartfelt & Enjoyable!

This is an amazing historical romance, it is well written and well told with interesting storylines that captivated me from start to end. This is a novella sized book but Pamela Ferguson fit a lot of story into it, a story that flows beautifully and has a lot of heart. She gives a nice glimpse of the times and what life was like for some after WWII, it is a great reflection of history. During war time, men stationed overseas meet the love of their lives. Maggie Cameron a dispatch rider for the Women’s Royal Naval Service, met her husband, John, an American Serviceman while he was stationed in the UK. When the war ended he was dispatched back to the US promising to be reunited soon. War Brides were very common and ships were sent for them to be brought to the US. I admire the courage of these women, leaving the homes they know for a life unknown. Maggie and John reunite when the ship docks in the NY harbor. She sets off to start her new life with her new husband and family. This is a heartfelt and realistic story, it captures the struggles she faces adjusting to a new life, a new family and country. John is supportive but has issues of his own, struggles with PTSD. I highly recommend this sweet and entertaining story.

I listened to the Audible edition, Rebecca Fine a terrific narrator and voice performer. She brings the characters to life, gives each their own voice and personality. She is an entertaining storyteller and a pleasure to listen to. Thank you for the great listen🎧

Make Do/Do Without

For most Americans, World War II was an exciting time, fear for the safety of loved ones, rationing and shortages notwithstanding. The conditions overseas were far different, with personal safety a daily issue and serious dietary restrictions and lack of goods an ongoing issue. This delightfully narrated (by Rebecca Fine) novella makes a number of such points and provides insights into the radical changes most War Brides faced upon coming to the United States. There is a great deal of tender humor to offset the more serious aspects of the story. Delightful!

A wonderful story

"I was given this free review copy audiobook at my request and have voluntarily left this review." I don't read a lot of contemporary books, but this one was full of love , commitment and family values. It is a story of a WWII couple and the adjustment they make at the end of the war. I really enjoyed reading this and feel that Pamela Ferguson and Rebecca Fine did marvelous jobs.

His Scottish War Bride

A sweet post WWII story. Maggie and John are reunited, in the US, following the war. Can they make their marriage work, or has the war left them with to many haunting memories?

The narration was beautifully done. I really loved Rebecca Fine’s Scottish accent!

Post WWII Romance

This was a fun look at what life looked like for some in the WWII era... love found during the war and oversea marriages and then what it looks like when they are reunited after the war. It was a clean little novel and a lot of fun to listen to. The narrator did a fantastic job with all of the character voices, especially the bride's Scottish accent. My only complaint is that I felt it was too short... I could have listened much longer.

What happens when the war is over?

It can't be easy to draw a nuanced picture of a certain historical period in 130 minutes, but Pamela Ferguson pulls it off, aided by solid narration by Rebecca Fine, whose "Maggie" voice was particularly appealing. I was especially moved by Maggie's simultaneous awe at the abundance of food and consumer goods in America and frustration (yes, even anger) at the realization that most Americans (her husband's family among them) are utterly oblivious to the shortages and suffering that continue in Europe even after the war is over. One has to wonder how many real-life war brides experienced those same conflicting emotions.

"His Scottish War Bride" wasn't so much a romance as it was a glimpse at what happens "after" "happily ever after," about the adjustments in store for two people who love each other, but who really don't know each other very well. Having fallen in love under extraordinary conditions, how will Maggie and John adjust to the "ordinariness" of daily life? I have the impression this book is the first in a series, and that we'll soon get a close-up look at some of Maggie's shipmates and fellow war brides as they explore their own post-war marriages. I'll be along for the ride.

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.

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.
