About the book:
Amelia Gladstone's hopes are tied up in the Titanic--hopes for a reunion with her sister and an introduction to an admirer. But when she offers a spare ticket to a down-and-out young man, her fate is about to change.

Quentin Walpole is stunned when a sweet lady secures his passage to America--and even more surprised to find his wealthy father and older brother on board the ship. Suddenly Amelia finds herself caught between the attentions of two men, but who should she entrust her heart to? As the fateful night arrives, will Amelia lose everything to the icy waters?

My Review:

As we observe the hundred year mark of the sinking of the Titanic we are remembering that cruise.
Amelia Gladstone is about to embark of the journey of a lifetime. She is traveling to Connecticut with her Aunt Nelda. Her cousin Henry was to join them, but ended up in jail. She has his ticket, and when she observes a man being manhandled and thrown off the ship, she does what she does best, and goes to his rescue.
Quinten gladly takes the ticket and boards. God has his hand in all of this...I am in awe of all that happens. Yes we relive this tragedy, but we also find wonderful God Loving people. Enjoyed reading the description of this great "unsinkable" ship, such opulence.
You meet the Rich and famous and some with a lot of notoriety...and we know the fate of most. We relive the moment of the iceberg hit, and the loading of the life boats...even if we wish things would change here it doesn't.
While reading this enjoy going with Amelia around the ship, and we hear her thoughts! Great! We also experience the wonderful experiences of "Forgiveness". I loved embarking on this cruise, thank you Tricia Goyer.

I received this book from the Publisher Barbour, and was not required to give a positive review.
