Take two: Maiden Voyages: Women in the Golden Age of Transatlantic Travel, Sian Evans

For a full review, see my Patreon

I bought this at Collins Booksellers in Thirroul on the final day of last year. At the time I was between houses and staying sometimes with friends, and sometimes in a hotel in Mascot. On the day in question I was with friends, who lived at the time in Wollongong. My reason for buying this book was in order to savour more of a gilded past, one that, it seemed from remnants that had passed to me from my parents, others’d also regretted missing out enjoying. After dad’s retirement he went seafaring with my mother on occasion, for part of the year the two of them living in the Caribbean.
