The previous reviewers have gone into excellent, in depth detail of this story so I will keep this brief. I thought L. Flemmings last novel, Winters Children would be difficult to beat as it is on my shelf of all time keepers and already well worn through several readings. However, in this novel she has taken an historical event, which was so momentous then created the lives of her characters to a believable conclusion. This book was released to co-inside with the obvious fervour that was expected on the 100th anniversary of the sinking of the Titanic and could have just become swallowed up with all the excess of recent publications. However, Ms Flemming is such an outstanding novelist, she has, in my humble opinion, produced a piece of fiction that will stand the test of time. It is touching, believable and quite simply wonderful. I agree with one of the previous reviewers in that the title is directed at the Captain; he rescued the baby and his subsequent actions created the story for this novel. I was totally absorbed within the pages of this book and it is such a treat to be able to write such an appreciative review.Just lovely!
