As war engulfs Europe, 1,500 passengers risk everything to find a brighter future. Cousins, Masha and Rachel Morgenstern, board the luxury liner the SS Manhattan bound for New York, desperate to escape the concentration camps that claimed the rest of their family. America offers a safe haven, but to reach it they must survive a hazardous Atlantic crossing. Among their fellow passengers fleeing the war, each with their own conflicts, secrets and surprises, are the composer Igor Stravinsky, making a new start after a decade of tragedy, and Rose Kennedy, determined to keep her four children from harm. Particularly worrying to Rose is her daughter Rosemary, a vivacious but troubled woman whose love for a Californian musician may derail her family's political ambitions. And then there's young Thomas, a Nazi with a secret... But, under the waves, the Manhattan is being stalked by a German U-boat. Will any of those aboard the ocean liner ever achieve their dream of a new life in America?… (lisätietoja)

Historical fiction set during WWII and takes place on the ocean liner Manhattan as it sails to New York City. I enjoyed the stories of the cousins Masha and Rachel Morgenstern. Their is an interesting cast of characters on board and learning about their stories was intriguing. I would recommend this book to friends and give it a 4 star rating. ( )

DNF

I am always in awe of writers who take a little snippet of fact and have the imagination to weave a whole convincing story around it. The author of The Ocean Liner brings a cast of real and fictional characters together on a cruise ship bound for the United States from Europe right before WWII. One of the passengers is a young Rosemary Kennedy. While living in England where her father served as Ambassador, she fell in love with a man named Cubby Hubbard. He truly loved Rosemary in return, and planned to marry her, saving her from the sad life she lived with the demanding Kennedy family. As history shows, this was not Rosemary's fate.

I thought that was such a tragic, romantic part of her story I had never known about before. But then I found out that this wasn't true, and the man never existed! (In fact, I don't think Rosemary was even on the cruise ship with the rest of her family, but instead stayed on in England for awhile with her father, but I'm not sure about that.) Anyway, that kind of killed what little interest I had in the story, so this one is a DNF for me.

Over 1500 people, rich and poor, desperate and hopeful, were on board the SS Manhattan on its voyage from Europe to New York City in 1939. Two young Jewish cousins (the only ones of their family to escape from the Nazis), a young Jewish boy posing as a member of the Nazi Youth, and well known names such as Stravinsky, Toscanini, and the Kennedys are just a few of the many to call the SS Manhattan their home for its long trip. Though all plan to begin life anew in America, each carry burdens that threaten their happiness, with their broken hearts and forsaken first loves laid bare.

In a way I enjoyed reading the stories of those who sailed on board the SS Manhattan so many years ago, however, I thought the author covered TOO many stories. I feel it would have been beneficial to focus on just a few individuals instead of so many because, after awhile, it got confusing.

However, because it was a good bit of historical fiction, my favorite genre, I will recommend it for Adults.

Historical fiction (so called) about an ocean liner leaving Europe as World War II is about to begin with a passenger list that includes the composer Shostakovich, the conductor Arturo Tosconinni. Rose Kennedy and several of her children and assorted Jewish refugees escaping the Nazis at the last minute

The plot is preposterous. The kind of audio book that puts listeners to sleep. Don't waste your time ( )
