This book does a beautiful job of weaving together three stories that span several decades and two continents. The ghostly elements added to the character development and helped build the atmosphere. My only complaint is that the “reveal” at the end was kind of a let-down.

7/10 Good read, this author tends to write very similar stories mixing the past and present. As noted in my review of another book by the same author, characters are likeable yet oddly 2 dimensional. The bit around the war brides coming to America has sparked an interest in doing more research about the war brides, which is the only reason the rating is higher than a 6.

I did not go into this one, having high hopes. I was totally wrong and just loved it. I love the multiple story lines that run in two different points of times. The author made it work.

Finished A Bridge Across the Ocean yesterday. It was a great, summer read centering around the ship The Queen Mary. I always wanted to pick it up and find out what happened next, and it had a some surprising insight and wisdom that I wasn't expecting. On the right are my some contenders for what to read next.

Another absolute hit by Ms. Meissner!! While one detail at the end had me deciding on 4 stars instead of 5, I definitely loved this one and would recommend.

My "owned" TBR pile isn't nearly the size as many but with my paper and Kindle books, I have over 300 unread books. I get overwhelmed because then I have library books always becoming available and then of course there's the always growing list of books I want to read. Does this overwhelm anyone else? I make myself crazy sometimes instead of just....reading ?

Bklover I have decided to just wallow in the feeling. All those books, and at the rate I am going I will never run out! 👍 3y

An historical fiction story that bounces between two different time periods. The twist is the paranormal theme in solving the mystery. The characters of the past were interesting - not so much the one from the present.

Even tho I already have 3 other books started, I have to start this one tonight. I love this author so much. Even tho I'm not ecstatic about the slight paranormal element to this, I am excited that it takes place partially on the Queen Mary in 1946. My mom sailed that ship in I believe May or June of 46 as an infant when her mom brought her to America. Im also going to be staying on the ship in Long Beach next year. Can't wait!!

JacqMac That is so cool! 3y

Absolutely love everything Susan Meissner writes and this is no exception. Two timelines that find themselves crossing, with delightful characters and an interesting mystery to keep you guessing. And on top of that...ghosts! 🌟🌟🌟🌟✨

I really enjoyed this historical fiction by a favorite author. Lived the alternating timelines with a few different characters whose lives eventually intertwine. The time period - WW II - is one I am immersed in at the moment, so it was interesting to have another take on that. Wonderful characters, beautiful writing, and last but not least for me, that lovely cover. Need to read more by Meissner!

I loved the way Meissner weaved the women's past into the story and how Brette was able to find things out. I loved how developed the "war brides" stories were so developed. I loved how this book was presented from the cover to the end. I will be reading this author again.????? for full review lovintoread.blogspot.com

Three women board the Queen Mary to meet up with their American soldier husbands after WWII. Only 2 get off the ship. Meissner merges this story with a present day character and you'll be intrigued.

I'm a sucker for historical fiction so I liked this book. It took me a while go get into it though. The present day storyline was a little ridiculous but it eventually starts to make sense.

This was fascinating and beautiful historical fiction that talks about WW2 and war brides and the RMS Queen Mary. It had interesting detail, but the end fell a bit flat to me. I did enjoy the book, and fans of Meissner's work will surely like this book. I reviewed an ARC copy of the book.

I took this image from Google. As soon as this story comes out try and find a copy. It is that good. I received it as an ARC from @PenguinRandomCa @PenguinPublishing @penguinusa @penguinrandomhouse @BerkleyPub

irregularreader I found myself a bit disappointed, actually. I loved the bits that occur during ww2, but found the present day parts a bit superfluous. Ahhh well, can't please everybody all the time I guess . . . 3y
