Anne Harrington, voyages home from Nigeria to England after her father's burial. She lies on her state bed in a grief-stricken torpor, reading her father s diary and drawn into the world of her family s past. She is forced into action when an illegal stowaway begs her to help his deathly ill pregnant wife. She confides in the first mate and finds herself drawn into the shadowy and ambiguous world of seduction, lies, and murder. Back in England, Anne's need to punish herself for her part in the shipboard nightmare leads her into a relationship through which she finally discovers her own power and what she wants to do with it.Dark and brooding, The Voyage Home is ultimately redemptive in Jane Rogers strong hand; it is a devastatingly intuitive exploration of the relationships and actions that make us who we are and that force us to become who we want to be.
