I have always been a huge fan of historical fiction, and have been fascinated by the Titanic so Tricia’s latest book was a perfect marriage of the two for me!
Even though readers know what is going to happen regarding the Titanic, this book was interesting in that it gives some insight as to the frenzy taking place in the days prior to the ill-fated voyage. The characters are interesting, and there’s scandal and deception right from the start so from page one, I was drawn into Trica’s writing. As always, Tricia managed to weave sound morals and faith all through the book, solidifying what she stands for.
One of the main characters, Amelia, is sweet and unassuming. She’s also a bit naïve and soon finds herself in a bit of a love triangle. And to muddy the waters even further, she’s on the Titanic for the purpose of meeting up with her beau in America, Mr. Chapman. If you’ve read any of Tricia’s books, then you will love this one just as much as her others. If you haven’t read her books yet, this is a great one to start with.
From the back of the book:
Destiny brought them together.
Will tragedy draw them apart?
Amelia Gladstone's mind is filled with promise as she gazes at the marvelous new ship, ready for its maiden voyage. The Titanic holds the promise of a reunited family...and of possible love waiting on American shores. Nothing could mar Amelia's joy, until she sees a ragged stowaway being escorted down the gangplank.
Down-and-out after squandering his fortune, Quentin Walpole thought his voyage to America ended on the Southamption peir. Then a sweet lady--his angel of mercy named Amelia--secured his passage with a spare ticket. Now he's headed to America, eager for a second chance.
But once the voyage begins, the past confronts Quentin when he discovers that his wealthy railroad tycoon father and older brother Damien are also on board. As Amelia tries to bring about a reconciliation between father and son, she suddenly finds herself the center of both brothers' attention with a choice to make: Who can she trust with her heart?
Then the fateful night arrives, and one brother faces a greater choice.
Will Amelia's fate ultimately be one of love or loss?
