All Afloat!


Written by Sue Morris

If you are aboard a luxury liner in the 1920s, sailing at a leisurely pace, the past can catch up with you…

SKU: 027 Category: Tags: ,


The scene is a transatlantic liner, sailing between Liverpool and New York in the 1920s. Lord Montague ‘Monty’ Carstaires is travelling to the Big Apple with his wife Lady Caroline and Monty’s younger brother Freddie. Their young, rich, guest Penelope ‘Pest’ Petersham is ripe for the picking. But an unexpected encounter on board brings to the surface a past which many had hoped had been buried along with the dead in World War I. A tale of spurned love and cowardice. And on board ship there is nowhere to hide…
