Rhys has written a sophisticated story that is sure to captivate readers. With passengers confined together for five weeks on an ocean liner, tensions are high, love affairs begin and dark secrets haunt.
It’s 1939 and Europe is on the brink of war as Lily Shepherd leaves England for Australia to escape her past. Lily farewells her parents and steps onto an ocean liner where she meets an eclectic group of passengers who both intimidate and seduce her with their glamour.
Working class Lily finds herself rubbing shoulders with decadent couple Max and Eliza Campbell and the flirtatious Edward Fletcher. But as her friend Maria remarks, like Lily, everyone is trying to escape something.
When the ship arrives in Sydney war has been declared and murder has been committed.
