Review by TheoClarke
A seafaring adventure in which vessels on both sides of the Second World War find a storm to be the greater enemy. Subplots include the doomed love of a German sailor for a nun and backstories for some of the characters aboard the wrecked tall ship and its rescuers. In many ways a large part of the story is a reworking of A Game For Heroes (Higgins writing as James Graham, 1970).
