Synopsis:

She left everything behind to follow her heart …

The enthralling true story of a British war bride after World War II.

June Baker saw the American soldier walking toward her. In the gray of wartime England, he looked out of place—as if a blond movie star had just dropped out of the sky. They had a whirlwind courtship, and June fell in love with and married Borgy, the handsome GI from St. Charles, Missouri. She eagerly anticipated her new life in America. But when the war ended, June was horrified to learn they'd be moving to Germany—land of the enemy—instead. And just like that, June's unexpected journey began …

June's story is a bonus installment of the international bestseller GI Brides.
