Description: The sweeping story of a great shipping line -- and the extraordinary woman at its helm... All the wealth, the excitement, and the glamour she could ever yearn for was hers. Yet, for the beautiful Brande Maddox, there was an aching emptiness inside that no amount of power and prestige could ever satisfy. As the charismatic First Lady of the Maddox Line, she ruthlessly schemed her way through boardroom battles and personal feuds. The great liners that sailed the oceans of the world reflected the stylishness and the elegance that were her birthright. But as a woman who had known tragedy painfully early in life, whose private affairs remained veiled to those who watched her dazzlingly rise to fame, she nursed a longing that was deeper than the ocean itself: she needed to find the man who could bring her the peace and fulfillment she desired, whose love would free her from the memories that haunted her.
