Summary
1939, Europe on the brink of war: Lily Shepherd leaves England on an ocean liner bound for Australia, escaping her life of drudgery for new horizons. She is instantly seduced by the world onboard: cocktails, black-tie balls and beautiful sunsets. Suddenly, Lily finds herself mingling with people who would otherwise never give her the time of day. But soon she realizes her glamorous new friends are not what they seem. The rich and hedonistic Max and Eliza Campbell, mysterious and flirtatious Edward and fascist George are all running away from tragedy and scandal even greater than her own. And by the time the ship docks in Sydney, two passengers are dead, war has been declared, and life will never be the same again..
Summary
On board an ocean liner bound for Australia on the eve of World War II, Lily Shepherd enjoys exotic stops while bonding with high-society passengers, a situation that is complicated by her growing love for a man far above her station and an untimely double murder
