    Yes, America—and much of the world—is in for a shock. Edmund, as he contemplates his imminent death, finds a hitherto unsuspected romantic sensibility. It felt just like I was staring into their depths and something new about them would float up inside of me because I wished to know them more. Where do they come from, these secret arteries of the sea, tropical or polar?

    I want my fill of beauty before I go. Good manners, and well-bred English reticence prevail, and the friendship between Edmund and Laura endures. Would you read another book by this author? It speaks of a life drawing to a close, it is elegiac and it is haunting. Did they remind you of anyone?

    Why do I say all this? Delighting in having the sun on his face, Edmund settles into a lovely on board routine, frequently in the company of Laura. Vita and Harold had enjoyed cruise life before, yet on this last, sad voyage Vita began writing No Signposts… a novel about dying, unrequited love and how life should be grabbed at with both hands. Laura is presented as perhaps being a little unconventional — she discusses her views on marriage quite candidly and relates the touching story of a lesbian couple she knows.
