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?

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.
