Summary
"As the wife of retired ship?s doctor Dr Henry Parker, Evelyn is living out her twilight years aboard the Golden Sunset. Every night she dresses for dinner and regales her fellow passengers with stories of a glamorous life travelling the world. The crew treat her with deference. And forbearance.But when Henry goes missing, Evelyn sets off to search every part of the ocean liner to find him; misadventures are had ? all new to Evelyn. If only she could remember the events of the night before as clearly as she can recall the first time she met Henry on a passage from England to Australia in 1953 and fell in love ? abandoning her dreams to become a midwife to be a wife instead ? and the long-ago painful events that left Evelyn all at sea. Why is it so hard to remember some things and so hard to forget others? And where is Henry?"--Publisher description
