The Voyage Home book. In The Voyage Home, Jane Rogers Takes important contemporary themes (immigration, colonialism) and uses them as a basis for a profound and page-turning novel.

Helen Falconer is enchanted by Jane Rogers's poetically transparent prose in The Voyage Home. During the voyage it becomes clear that the ailing woman has not been taken to a sick bay but tossed over the rail into the sea, so that the sailors will not be fined for smuggling refugees. Anne keeps imagining the unborn child as still alive, far below on the ocean floor. Floating and moving in that element, surviving there without air as he had lived in his mother's womb, his movement slow and graceful, his tiny hands raised to his mouth in wonder as coloured fish swam by; he would be upright, like a sea horse, his huge eyes filled with delight.

Anne, a woman in her 30s, is bringing home the body of her missionary father, David, who has died suddenly in Nigeria

Anne, a woman in her 30s, is bringing home the body of her missionary father, David, who has died suddenly in Nigeria. She has decided to take the long way home, by container ship, to help her come to terms with his death. What she has not reckoned with though is that she gets involved both with two stowaways (clandestinely) and the ship's mate (sexually) and that the journey will end in murder.

Hailed by the New York Times Book Review as an ambitious and important writer, Jane Rogers has earned acclaim on both sides of the ocean for her signature blend of psychological intensity and resounding moral underpinnings.

Anne Harrington, voyages home from Nigeria to England after her father's burial. She lies on her state bed in a grief-stricken torpor, reading her father s diary and drawn into the world of her family s past. She is forced into action when an illegal stowaway begs her to help his deathly ill pregnant wife. She confides in the first mate and finds herself drawn into the shadowy and ambiguous world of seduction, lies, and murder. Back in England, Anne's need to punish herself for her part in the shipboard nightmare leads her into a relationship through which she finally discovers her own power and what she wants to do with it. Dark and brooding, The Voyage Home is ultimately redemptive in Jane Rogers strong hand; it is a devastatingly intuitive exploration of the relationships and actions that make us who we are and that force us to become who we want to be.
