    Disappointed...

    Based on the majority of reviews I was lead to believe this was a book of some substance. I was very disappointed. The author's attempt at mystery and suspense was just a lot of hopping around time and locale. Perhaps this confusion as to relevancy was supposed to draw the reader in to wonder what would happen next? In any regards this book can be tolerable if you get it for free, but it would be a waste of your time and money to pay more than a buck for it. The author gave mixed messages. I couldn't root for anyone nor could I invest in the characters' fates. This is no classic in the making.

    This was the most boring book I ever read.  Ever.

    It was especially disappointing because I am interested in both the Titanic and in spiritualism and because I enjoyed Katherine Howe's first books so much.
