Snapshots of a War Bride's Life
by Joy Beebe
A 1940s account of a young English girl and her family living and working during WWII. After an eternity of scary bomb sounds, sleeping under a table, and watching London burn, 22-year-old Joy marries American soldier Carl and leaves Britain behind. Traveling first by troop ship, then by train the couple arrives in Salem with $10 to their name and a two-year-old son to begin their life in America.
