Book
A young German girl finds friendship, camaraderie and even love while working on Gosport's ferries in the height of World War II. But will her new friends desert her if her nationality comes to light? Vee Smith is twenty-two when she starts work on Gosport's ferries. She soon makes friends with the other women workers, and together they enjoy nights out dancing in Gosport. Vee even feels herself falling for Sam, the skipper of the ferry and her unhappily married boss. But Vee has a secret: her real name is Violetta Schmidt, and she is half-German. If her true nationality is discovered, she and her mother could find themselves interned as enemy aliens.
