Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0972470530, Paperback)

What begins as a shipboard romance becomes a lifelong love affair with the sea. Go behind the scenes of historic Queens Line with Annie Moore, the companys longest continuous employee. This saga traces her career from a Lady Assistant Purser in 1962 to Social Hostess on a 21st century megaliner. Welcome aboard The Goddess, a Queens Line ship, and one of the most exclusive ocean liners sailing the seven seas. As the Jet Age of the 1960s eclipses ocean travel, the historic British lines future is far from certain. Annie falls in love with the ships piano player, who leaves her to find his fame and fortune on dry land. With the help of her friends, Annie travels the world in grand style, if only as part of the hired help. As the Queens Line learns to adapt and build ships for a new generation of travelers, Annie learns to treasure her true friends; stand up to those who take advantage of her, and realize that love can be worth traveling the world for.
