(From the publisher):
It was August 1914, and a luxury German ocean liner had materialized at dawn in Bar Harbor.
The Kronprinzessen Cecilie was halfway across the Atlantic when war broke out in Europe. Rather than risk capture by British or French warships, the Cecilie's captain reversed course, seeking a safe port in the United States. Three days later, under cover of darkness, he brought a camoflaged Cecilie, and her hundreds of passengers and crewmen, to anchor at the small resort town of Bar Harbor, Maine.
The Magic Ship is a tale of the last fragile innocence before World War I, an idyll of love lost and love found during Bar Harbor's most memorable summer.
