“Maggie Bright” by Tracy Groot, book review
While the US has not entered WWII, Europe is fully engulfed in the conflict. Clair Child’s has inherited the “Maggie Bright” a 52′ yacht. She plans to sail it, alone around the world. But first, she must learn to sale and support herself in the process. She has turned the boat into a Bed and Breakfast.
But then a stranger appears on the boat, searching for something. He will not speak even when arrested. She makes the trek to Scotland Yard to find out, but is denied entrance, as prisoners are allowed only 1 visitor per day, and he has already had his visitor. As luck would have it, Clair runs into Murray Vance. He is from America and the son of the owner of her yacht. This creates more questions than answers about the “Maggie Bright.”
This is a novel about the Battle of Dunkirk. For those in America we usually view WWII after December 1942 when we entered the war, but there were many battles prior to that. I enjoyed the novel, but had a hard time following the story for quite a few chapters, as there were different groups of characters in various places that seemed unrelated for a long time. But I keep going and they all came together.
I would recommend this book for those interested in WWII especially Europe’s involvement and those interested in yachts.
