Based on a compelling true story in an age when the collision between duty and love could
leave you with more than a broken heart. The year is 1946, and all over the world young women are crossing the seas in their thousands en route to the men they married in wartime, and an unknown future. In Sydney, Australia, four women join 650 other brides and hundreds of naval officers on an extraordinary voyage to England - aboard the Victoria. Rules of honour, duty and separation are strictly enforced, from the aircraft carriers captain clown to the lowliest young stoker. But the men and the brides will find their lives intertwined in ways the Navy could never have imagined... And Frances Mackenzie, an enigmatic young bride whose past comes back to haunt her thousands of miles from home - will find that sometimes the journey is more important than the destination.
