This was an interesting take on a m/m romance. Their relationship begins on the Lusitania, bound for England. One passenger is Edmund Blessing, a naive young man fresh out of divinity school, off to assume the post of chaplain in the army. Unfit for duty because of his poor eyesight, he wants to serve any way he can. During the voyage, he is attracted to David, his Welsh cabin steward. Lame from a childhood injury, David is lucky to have his position, which was ordinarily filled by an able-bodied man.
The two discover a mutual attraction and are drawn closer and closer, until their relationship cannot be denied. The most interesting thing about the book was knowing the fate of the ship and wondering how that would affect their relationship.
