I don't believe I have read a novel set aboard the Titanic_and if I have I know I haven't read one written in such a dramatic fashion.
There were twists and turns to this novel, deception and fear, faith and despair that kept emotions at riveting heights. The voice behind this story was engaging at the core and the character's struggles constantly kept the story moving forward.
The first hundred or so pages I wondered what was bringing these multitude of characters from so many walks of life together on one ship, but read far enough and you'll find that each one has a careful place to play in the story.
For anyone with any knowledge of American/British history, it was hard to read the scenes aboard the Titanic, knowing that the ship was not long for the high seas. The final scenes as the ship was going down were difficult to read, hoping that the characters I'd spent over three hundred pages with were among those going to make it.
I thought that the offerings of this novel were epic, well written and tasteful. I had a sense of being on the ship with the characters, a sense of being there as the ship went down. All in all a very enjoyable read.
This review is my honest opinion. Thanks to the publishers through Litfuse for my copy to review.
This book captivates you from the first chapter! The story was gripping as it led you from one charater to another and weaved a love story throughout. I enjoyed the historical elements as well. The ending suprised you, but doesn't leave you disappointed! Highly recommend!
