Australia, 1946. 650 brides are departing for England to meet the
men they married in wartime. But instead of the luxury liner they
were expecting, they find themselves aboard an aircraft carrier,
alongside a thousand men. On the sun-baked decks, old loves and
past promises become distant memories, and tensions are stretched
to the limit as brides and husbands change their minds. And for
Frances Mackenzie, one bride in particular, it soon becomes clear
that sometimes the journey is more important than the destination.
