Details

The ocean liners that plied the Atlantic between the wars offered freedom and opportunity to women seeking work, leisure or a new life. This book follows the fortunes of a dozen such voyagers of all backgrounds, among them Marie Riffelmacher, a 15-year-old economic migrant from Germany, the singer and dancer Josephine Baker, the actress Tallulah Bankhead and the journalist Martha Gellhorn.
