Overview

The secrets in a woman's heart are deeper than the ocean…
For May Smith, travelling with her husband and baby girl Ellen, stepping foot on the Titanic marks the start of an incredible journey, one which is destined to take her from the back streets of Bolton to the land of opportunity: the United States.
But when the 'unsinkable' Titanic hits an iceberg one cold dark night, May's dreams are instantly shattered. Jumping from the sinking ship at the last minute, May loses sight of Joe and Ellen. Distraught, she is pulled into a lifeboat. Minutes later, the real-life Captain Smith swims to the lifeboat and hands May a baby swaddled in blankets.
Beside herself, and in virtual darkness, May believes the baby to be Ellen. This rescue is witnessed by fellow survivor, Celeste Parkes, married to an American industrialist who is on her way back to Ohio after her mother's funeral.
In horror, they both watch the death throes of the mighty ship; May traumatised, knowing her husband has drowned, Celeste wishing her bully of a husband had been on board and out of her life.
As the dawn comes up, and the two women are rescued by the Carpathia, a friendship is formed, one which is destined to transcend the Atlantic and social differences between them and last a lifetime. Then May makes a shocking discovery and a split-second decision which will change the lives of so many.

    A good historical read with a well woven plot

    This book revealed new perspectives on the titanic. I enjoyed the European influence and also how the author wove historical events to help the reader keep the timeline in perspectuve as well. I will look for her other books as well.

    Terrible writing

    The background and historical aspect kept it interesting, but the book was so poorly written I couldn't finish it and I am not one who easily gives up on novels. Specifically, there was very little in the way of character development and it was hard to feel anything for the characters at all. Typically if I find that I have made an error in choosing a book, I can muddle through and finish it because I care about the characters. Not so with this one.
    Also, the use of modern slang mixed in drove me a bit batty- I think I put the book down for good when one of the characters used the term "digs" to refer to their place of dwelling. Combined with no clear direction and the constant jumping from character to character, it is really not worth picking up and wasting your time and money.

    Titanic, family history, love, and a mystery!

    This book has it all wrapped up in one package. The Titanic intrigues me. I love genealogy and family history. Throw in some suspense and a mystery. Sprinkle in a few love stories. Not too short, not too long. For me, just right!

    Predictable

    It was an "OK" read. The story line was predictable but I did enjoy some of the historical elements.
