Kaisa knows she should be happy.
To marry The Englishman, Peter, was a mere dream when she was a student in Helsinki. It’s now 1984 and Kaisa wants a career as well as Peter. But no one in Portsmouth wants to give a job to a young, foreign Navy Wife. Kaisa’s frustration creates bitter rows between the newlyweds, which Kaisa regrets each time Peter goes away to sea.
When Peter is posted to serve on a Royal Navy Polaris missile submarine in Faslane, Kaisa has little choice but to follow him up to Scotland.
Enter rich, charming and clever Duncan, who seems to have all the answers to Kaisa’s problems. With Peter away, can the lonely and bored Kaisa resist Duncan’s advances?
Can Peter and Kaisa’s love stay on course?
Nordic Noir meets Scandinavian romance in this 1980s love story.
I was lucky enough to win this book on a Goodreads giveaway.
It is a well written love story, of a foreign wife and a sub-mariner, and her struggle to be accepted, a ideal book for those lazy days when you just want to chill out with easy reading and a nice drink round the pool on holiday. 5***** on Goodreads
I recommend The Navy Wife to anyone who likes reading interesting and unusual novels about marriage and romance. Although I also recommend the prequel, The Englishman, The Navy Wife also works well as a standalone novel. Wondering and hoping now whether there will be a third book in the series… 5***** Debbie Young, author.
Excellent sequel to the Englishman, can’t wait for the next part of the story! 5***** on Goodreads
