Pages: 320
Format: Paperback

Remember the Titanic 100 years after its doomed voyage with Tricia Goyer’s fictional portrayal of one woman’s journey. To Amelia Gladstone, this ship means promise of seeing family again. To Quentin Walpole, the Titanic represents a new start in America…if he can get onboard. All seems lost until Amelia offers him a ticket, securing his passage—and bringing him face-to-face with his railroad tycoon father and older brother, Damian. As Amelia works to reconcile father and son, she finds herself the object of both brothers’ affection. Can she choose between two brothers? Or will she lose everything to the icy waters of the Atlantic?
While I did like this book, I felt that it was just a slight twisted version of the Titanic movie. Girl meets guy, they fall in love, tragedy causes problems. The end. Don't get me wrong, it was a great book! I just felt the plot-line was predictable and left me feeling a little bored. I do think you should try the book, because it is good. And the historical parts are great! Pick this up in time for the 100 year anniversary!
