This is Margaret's story, one of four true stories from the book GI Brides.
"Margaret's eyes were on the handsome of?cers who milled around the US Army headquarters. But it was one young second lieutenant that she particularly looked out for. And she secretly determined to make him hers."
An attractive young English girl, Margaret finds herself working at the US Army headquarters in London, where she meets a dashing American officer who breaks her heart. Soon she falls pregnant by another GI, marries, and follows him to America's deep south. What she finds out in Georgia about her husband's true character will shock her.
Margaret's story is extracted from GI Brides, written by the bestselling authors of The Sugar Girls. It tells the true stories of four of the 70,000 British women who crossed the Atlantic for love after the Second World War.
Duncan Barrett and Nuala Calvi are the bestselling authors of The Sugar Girls, which chronicled the stories of young women working in Tate and Lyle's factory in the East End of London.
Duncan studied English at Cambridge and is a writer and editor, specialising in biography and memoir. As a journalist, Nuala Calvi has written for The Times, The Guardian, The Independent, The Express, the BBC, CNN and numerous Time Out guides.
