Summary
  • "In 1946, three European women, having married American soldiers, board the Queen Mary to reunite with their husbands. But as they journey to the United States, secrets are revealed that will alter their lives forever"--
  • World War Two is over: Annaliese Lange, a German ballerina desperate to escape her past, and Simone Deveraux, the wronged daughter of a French Resistance spy, are joining hundreds of other European war brides aboard the renowned RMS Queen Mary to cross the Atlantic and be reunited with their American husbands. Their tightly-held secrets are laid bare in their shared stateroom; when the voyage ends at New York Harbor, only one of them will disembark. Present day: Brette Caslake visits the famously haunted Queen Mary at the request of an old friend. What she finds will set her on a course to solve a seventy-year-old tragedy, draw her into the heartaches and triumphs of the courageous war brides-- and will ultimately lead her to reconsider what she has to sacrifice to achieve her own deepest longings
Summary
Brette Caslake visits the haunted Queen Mary and makes a discovery that will help her solve a 70-year old tragedy involving two European war brides who sailed on the same vessel to New York Harbor in 1946
