Join Christi Wampler on Monday, June 10, at 6:30 in the Lawson McGhee Library meeting room for a discussion of The Last Cruise by Kate Christensen.
The last voyage for a luxury ocean liner provides the backdrop for this compelling and suspenseful novel. Commissioned back in the 1950s, the Queen Isabella is set to retire in style. From California to Hawaii, the last cruise of the stately ship is slated to be a retro, fun-filled nod to mid-century glamour. However, soon enough the various characters from above and below decks are embroiled in tension and conflict as a series of catastrophic failures threaten their voyage.
