Interview, Excerpt

On April 15, 1912, Lydia Beaumont is on her way to a new life with a boundless hope in love and faith. Her new friendship with Caroline Chadwick is bonded even more as they plan Lydia's wedding on board the "grandest ship ever built." Then both women suffer tragic losses when the "unsinkable" Titanic goes down. Can each survive the scars the disaster left on their lives?

Decades later, Alan Morris feels like a failure until he discovers he is the descendant of an acclaimed, successful, heroic novelist who went down with the Titanic. Will he find his identity with the past, or will he listen to Joanna Bettencourt, Caroline's granddaughter, who says inner peace and success come only with a personal relationship with the Lord?

Will those who survived and their descendants be able to fin d a love more powerful than their pain?


 Hearts that Survive Discussion Questions: Yvonne Lehman


1. If someone said, even jokingly, “Not even God could sink this ship,” what happens inside you? How would you respond?



2. Is there any situation that might lead you to think, not even God can, or will, change a particular situation. Why or why not?



3. Do you think you’d be a so-called coward or hero if you were on that sinking ship?



4. What do you think of Lydia’s decisions about her personal situation? Can you sympathize or condemn? What do you think you’d do if in her condition?



5. What does Lydia’s and Caroline’s relationship say about friendship? What kind of friend are you? What kind do you want? Are there various degrees of friendship?



6. Craven accused Lydia’s love for John of being a fairy tale. Do you think her love was more fantasy or real? Are there many kinds and degrees of love?



7. Did any event or situation bring about any character’s growth in faith? What events have strengthened or grown your own faith? The blessings or the trials?



8. Who is your favorite character in the story, or which one do you best identify with? Why?



9. What motivated Craven Dowd’s actions? Do you think you really know him? Why or why not? Do you think others really know you? Why or why not?



10. Could you tell which characters fell into the description of being Christian? Was it what they said, did, how they reacted? What in your life shows what Christianity is? Talking, going to church, action, all of it?
