Abandoned by his part-Cherokee Ma, Charlie Kincaid escapes servitude with his uncle. He jumps a boxcar, accompanied by his schoolmate Roxy, who is escaping troubles of her own. Charlie becomes a US Navy Diver.
Mattie Blanc is from a genteel New Zealand family. But when her brother's friend persuades her to take a ride, it all goes horribly wrong. Desperate, she flees her family's stifling expectations for a new life in Auckland.
After the 1941 Pearl Harbor attack, Charlie sets sail for Auckland aboard the USS Rigel. And there she is, the girl of his dreams. Mattie is everything that Roxy isn't-- sophisticated, tender, and patient. But the war intervenes... Rigel embarks for the Pacific war zones.
Charlie's letters are sporadic. Mattie is tormented by doubts; did he truly love her, or was it only a dream?
The Rigel Affair produces a rip-roaring wartime romance and chilling danger unknown to most.
