"In this sweeping epic of love, heartbreak, and secrets that will leave you wanting more, Lehman engages all your emotions in Hearts that Survive. The story covers three generations and touches on two major historical events that bring their significance to life. Yvonne Lehman has dug deep to bring us a story worthy of the Titanic's 100th anniversary." - Ane Mulligan, Sr. Editor of Novel Rocket

"In spite of one of the greatest tragedies the world has ever known being the setting for Hearts that Survive, this is one novel you will not want to miss reading. Yvonne Lehman has made alive a story filled with adventure and romance, sin and redemption. Hearts that Survive drew me in immediately with believable dialogue and heart-breaking intrigue. In the end, Lehman shows how God moves through our mistakes and our silly beliefs that "even God cannot sink this ship.Bravo!"  - Eva Marie Everson, Author, Chasing Sunsets

    This review was written for Hearts That Survive: A Novel of the Titanic.
    This is a riveting story set in an era where social class determined much and a marriage to someone who wasnt in the same class was appalling. John and Lydias marriage based on love and mutual faith takes place on the night the unsinkable ship struck an iceberg. Their love and faith bathed in redemption grips the heart of the reader, dragging them into a whirlwind story that takes away ones breath.

    Other characters in the story, some of which were real people, bring back the night of April 1912 on the maiden voyage of Titanic. Like others, I have seen movies and read novels based on the Titanic that might give the impression that another tale based on the Titanic would be like other books. Nothing could be further from the truth!

    Yvonne Lehman offers both a heartbreaking story coupled with one of redemption. As most tales always have antagonists, this one has one by the name of Craven Dowd the president of a railroad who sees himself as the protector of an heiress, Lydia. Every time I read in the novel what the man was doing or not doing I kept getting the sense he wasnt what he appeared to be to others. You will have to read and make that determination for yourself.

    Other delightful characters like Molly Brown and the Astors bring delight and joy to the celebration of John and Lydias marriage. After that fateful nights events, Lydia along with other survivors must decide through the fog what their lives are to become now that nothing will ever be the same. In the pages, faith is a theme that enraptures the soul of some while others dont see the need for it and live without it. Each character grapples with finding peace or answers sometimes without those answers as to how a God could allow such a night to pass with so many lives lost.

    I read this magnificent tale in one sitting. I simply couldnt stop. The powerful message of forgiveness and redemption comes through all the way to the last page! I hope whether youre a fan of the Titanic story or not that you will read a novel that will surely bring you to an exciting conclusion!

    I really enjoyed this book. I thought it was going to just be primarily about the Titanic and some of the aftermath, but is book covers about another six decades after the tragedy; it follows the characters entire life span, basically. It is definitely an enjoyable story. The end of John and Lydia is sad, and Craven starts out the character you love to hate. Overall an enjoyable read that goes deeper than the surface level.

    The year is 1812 and Lydia Beaumont is very much in love. Her beloved John Ancell and [one could call him her guardian] Craven Dowd are on the Maiden voyage of the Titanic. Lydia and John are expecting and decide the right thing to do is to marry immediately. You will read a description of how one of the most glamorous and beautiful and magical wedding ends up being.

    The wedding takes place, at 1030pm on the 14th of April 1912. We all know what happened, almost to horrible to even say. Lydia and her baby to be, do survive, as does Craven. There are others that will impact each others lives for decades. There are the children of the famous author Henry Stanton-Jones, Phoebe and Henry. There is also Caroline Chadwick and her maid [friend] Bess.

    This book will hold you spell bound, and you will not be able to put it down. Loved it, but it is hard to read about all the poor people who lost their lives on this ship! Keep the tissues handy.

    I received this book from the publisher Abingdon Press, and was not required to give a positive review.
