    Fascinating slice of life at sea, on a container ship, no less. The author was only 19 when she set off for three months to see the world (and swab the decks). The reader gets to know the various German sailors on board, and the less vivid female passengers. Not so vivid because there ...

    This tightly-written, short read had me right from the get-go, when 19-year-old Diane Meyer Lowman's parents accompany her onboard the German container ship she was set to spend ten weeks on, prior to its voyage to Australia. Doing what? Mr Lowman quite rightly asks, and I found mys...

    I received an ARC from the author in exchange for an honest review. In this gorgeous memoir, we are taken back to the summer of 1979 when the author, then 19, decides to forgo a summer job at her local suburban Roy Rogers and instead signs on to be a ?workaway? on a German cont...

    NOTHING BUT BLUE: A SUMMER AT SEA is an elegant memoir with such poetic prose that you feel as if you have journeyed with author Diane Meyer Lowman during her 10 weeks aboard a German container ship. Her trip facing nothing but blue water with a mostly male crew took her from New York ...
