Bride of the War: My Journey from Liverpool to Chicago


November 24, 2022

Book Details

With a warm, genuine voice, Provenzano draws you into her life in war-torn Liverpool, filled with air raids and blackouts, backyard shelters, incendiary bombs on parachutes, food rations and grade-school gas masks. She marries an Italian-American GI at the age of 17, and brings us across the choppy Atlantic in a converted cattle ship, heading for post-war America, train rides, headlines in newspapers and sudden deaths. Longing for mother England and friends back home, she paints a picture of her own headstrong children, journeys back home and abroad, and unexpected twists of fate. A unique blend of eyewitness history, nostalgia and the joy and pain of American immigrant family life, this lively, illustrated story reminds us of the 'Greatest Generation' and their hard-earned independence. With heart and a British "Scouser" sense of humor, Provenzano will bring a tear to your eye, and a smile to your face.
