Overview

April, 1912: It's the perfect finale to a Grand Tour of Europe-sailing home on the largest, most luxurious ocean liner ever built. For the Fortune sisters, the voyage offers a chance to reflect on the treasures of the past they've seen and contemplate the futures that await them.



For Alice, there's foreboding mixed with her excitement. A fortune teller in Egypt gave her a dire warning about traveling at sea. And the freedom she has enjoyed on her travels contrasts with her fiancé's plans for her return-a cossetted existence she's no longer sure she wants.



Flora is returning to a fiancé, a well-to-do banker of whom her parents heartily approve. Another man-charming, exasperating, completely unsuitable-occupies her thoughts, daring her to follow her desires.



Youngest sister Mabel knows her parents arranged this Grand Tour to separate her from a jazz musician. But Mabel has little interest in marrying at all, preferring to explore ideas of suffrage and reform-even if it forces a rift with her family.



Each sister grapples with the choices before her as the grand vessel glides through the Atlantic waters. Until, on an infamous night, fate intervenes, forever altering their lives . . .

Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher

Praise for SISTERS OF FORTUNE by Anna Lee Huber
 
Filled with luscious detail of the Titanic’s maiden voyage and spot on depictions of its many passengers, from the grand to the ridiculous. I felt an immediate empathy for the three young women whose life choices are challenged in the most unimaginable way. With the Titanic’s fate looming, Huber’s compelling narrative propelled me through the story, absolutely riveting until the very last page!” —Shelley Noble, New York Times Bestselling author of The Tiffany Girls
 
“Vibrant personalities collide on board a ship bound for certain disaster in [this] heartbreaking and ultimately hopeful story of a real-life Canadian family traveling on board the Titanic. Vividly detailed and painstakingly researched, SISTERS OF FORTUNE threads fact and fiction into a compelling story.” —Bryn Turnbull, author of The Paris Deception and The Woman Before Wallis
 
"Set against the heartbreaking grandeur of the Titanic’s fateful maiden voyage, Anna Lee Huber’s Sisters of Fortune is a beautifully-crafted—and ultimately uplifting—tale of three young women struggling with the personal complexities of love, loyalty and family as their world is about to change forever." —Andrea Penrose, nationally bestselling author of The Diamond of London

"Just finished...and LOVED IT. Historically rich and powerfully eloquent, Sisters of Fortune is an elegantly told tale of three strong and wholly unique Canadian sisters whose lives are changed forever during an ill-fated voyage on the Titanic. Anna Lee Huber’s writing is masterful, conjuring both the hopefulness and the tragedy of the past with profound sensitivity. The fate of the doomed luxury liner may be a foregone conclusion, but that doesn’t hinder the suspense of the story. I was held spellbound until the very last page. A spectacular read!" —Mimi Matthews, USA Today Bestselling Author of The Siren of Sussex

"I loved it! A fascinating and intimate look at life aboard the Titanic, portraying real people whose lives were so devastatingly impacted. Lush with sumptuous historical details and riveting as the events of that fateful voyage unfurl, readers will love this one!” —Madeline Martin, New York Times Bestselling Author of The Keeper of Hidden Books and The Last Bookshop in London
