RMS Queen Mary: Voices from Her Voyages (2018)

Indeed, there will never be another
ship like the iconic RMS Queen Mary. A prodigy of the seas, she was constructed by the people,
for the people and proved her worth on the North Atlantic and beyond. In both war and peace,
the Mary has carried people from all walks of life—and some of those people have come
together to tell their stories in this amazing book.
In RMS Queen Mary: Voices from Her Voyages, author and researcher Nicole Strickland has
answered the clarion call by not only sharing the sailing stories, accounts, and memories of
former Queen Mary crew, passengers, WWII veterans, and war brides, but also highlighting how
voyaging aboard this renowned vessel changed these individuals’ lives. Featuring rare historical
photographs, first-hand accounts, and exclusive interviews, RMS Queen Mary: Voices from Her
Voyages captures the visions of yesteryear and preserves the story of this glorious ship for
another generation.
