Notes:
Mrs Heatherington sets sail alone on a cruise. Vic, the on-board entertainer, recognises an elderly woman whose heart he thinks he can unlock as fast as her purse. This novel uncovers the poetry of self-discovery and the possibilities of change for us all.
Violet Hetherington has taken the rash step of joining a transatlantic cruise ship to New York to visit Edwin, an old friend. As she makes the six day crossing, she relives the traumatic events that led to her losing Edwin's friendship, and abandoning her career as a poet, for the safety of marriage and domesticity.

Reviews
Reading Group Review. We would recommend this novel but with some reservations. Some of the opinions were that the author had ‘lost her way’ with the novel’s focus. Various styles of marriages were presented, inviting comparisons. We liked the inter-weaving of current and past event narratives and the sense that a poet regained her powers. There were some fine comic moments to appreciate, and a variety of literary references that stimulated discussion.
