Item description for Courageous Bride: Montclair in Wartime, 1939-1946 (Brides Of Montclair) by Jane Peart...
Overview Niki goes to France to seek her true identity and to experience the richness of her French heritage, but what starts out as a pleasant vacation ends up as a series of dramatic challenges and dangerous decisions as World War II breaks out
Publishers Description 'Niki's heart was thrumming as the taxi stopped with a jerk in front of the gray, stone building behind tall, black iron gates. On a metal plaque was engraved Les Soeurs de Merci. Niki thrust several franc notes staring through the rungs of the gate. Years ago another young woman-perhaps her mother- had stood in the same place, a baby in her arms, the child she was going to give up. What emotions had run through her heart?' Niki had come to France to seek her true identity and to experience the richness of her French heritage. But what begins as a romantic, carefree summer holiday for Niki, her stepbrother Luc Montrose, and their friend Paul Duval, ends with the outbreak of war, changing their lives forever. As World War II ravages Europe, Niki wants desperately to serve her native country in its time of need. She finds herself making dangerous decisions and facing dramatic challenges, aware of- but unable to do anything about- the impact the war is having on her loved ones back at Montclair. Caught up in the firestorm of world conflict, this courageous young woman with an unknown past faces an uncertain future, with only her newfound faith to sustain her.

Reviews - What do customers think about Courageous Bride (Brides Of Montclair #14)?
The Montrose family enters WWII Jan 1, 2001
Courageous bride is the story of the next generation of Montroses, Luc and his adopted sister Nikki, and their roles in WWII. Nikki goes to France searching for her natural mother and stays in Europe to enter service in the WRENS. Quite by accident, she meets a Scottish Montrose cousin, and events unfold that keep the two meeting each other at Garnet's English home at different times throughout the war. Luc, who follows in his father's footsteps to become a fighter pilot, also finds love in Garnet's home, as have so many young people before him. But before any of these young people can fulfill their happiness, the war must come to an end. What will happen to Luc, who is reported missing in action, and to Nikki, who has been chosen to fulfill a dangerous assignment on the front in France? Peart has again woven a story of young people searching for fulfillment of God's plan for their lives, and has successfully found a fitting way to remove the matriarch Garnet Cameron Montrose Devlin from the series. Once again, my only criticism is that Peart needs to put a detailed family tree in each book, as the cousins, half-cousins, in-laws, and other members of the Camerson/Montrose families continue to grow and get more confusing in each book.
Another fantastic book in the series!! Feb 11, 1999
I really enjoyed reading this book. I have read all of the previous 13 books in the series and I loved them all. "The Brides of Montclair" series is probably one of my most favorite of all time. The history and heritage in each of the books is brought to life in the mind of the reader. It has really been neat reading each book and following the Montrose and Cameron families as they continue to grow. I would definitly recommend this book to anyone, but it really helps if you have read all of the other books because they are refered to quite often. I anxiously await another book in this series.
