Lillian Marshall is making the best of her life, despite her somewhat-less-than-law-abiding father’s interference. Coerced into traveling with him to England, they embark on the ill-fated Lusitania. Before all goes to hell, she meets the well-heeled Edward James and they fall for each other. Seeing an opportunity to swindle, Lillian’s father again forces her hand and she becomes involved in his underhanded scheming.
Before all of her hopes are utterly ruined fate steps in, in the form of a German U-Boat’s torpedo. Now they must all fight for their lives, and the lives of those they love.
The scenes of sinking of the Lusitania are striking and extremely well written. The images of horror and despair, of determination and triumph are wonderfully wrought and moving, and will linger in my mind.
I also found having been on several cruises myself related to the well written descriptions of the on board life in this book.
The fascinating thing was that after I read this book a couple of nights later on TV, Foxtel showed a documentary of an expedition and dive by a scientific group to see if the Lusitania was in fact carrying arms and ammunition...and as it was they found heaps of ammunition and bombs still piled inside the hull and a portion of which looked like had exploded justifying the second explosion that some had heard after the initial torpedo strike..
Looking forward to Joanna's next exciting literary adventure...
