Product Description

Product Description

Emilia Cavendish is given a first class ticket on board Titanic and sets out to start a new life with her godmother. The first few days aboard the world-famous 'unsinkable' liner are everything she hoped for as she enjoys the unaccustomed luxuries of the fabulous ship. She makes new friends amongst her fellow passengers - not least the darkly handsome, if somewhat overbearing, Carl Latimer. But when Titanic hits the iceberg, Emilia finds herself in danger from an old enemy on board, and as she struggles to escape him, Titanic starts to sink. . .

Review for Titanic Affair:
“This is a well-crafted and fast moving story. Using the setting of the maiden voyage of the Titanic takes a degree of courage on the part of any author and in this case it paid off. I was delighted to find a fresh slant on the well-known events of the tragic voyage. What stands out is the excellent use of historical detail such as the Crown Derby china, the electric horse, the Oxford marmalade and the author's ability to blend in real passengers like Mr Bruce Ismay, the chairman of the White Star Line, with her fictional characters in a seamless manner.”- Myfanwy Cook, Historical Novel Society

Author’s note
This novel presents an accurate view of life on board Titanic as well as providing a detailed account of the disaster. It was carefully researched using contemporary newspaper articles, survivors’ accounts and official documents. Sometimes the eye-witness accounts varied and in these cases I used the account which best fit my story. Woven into the accurate portrayal of Titanic’s voyage and ultimate sinking is a love affair which transcends the disaster, providing a thoughtful yet entertaining read.

5.0 out of 5 stars I loved it 8 Jun 2004
Format:Hardcover
I took this book out of the library and then I bought a copy. I loved it. It was a much better story than the one in the film, though I love the film, too, but I didn't like the ending. In this book, I was really on the ship with the characterss and I loved 'seeing' round the ship as the heroine went exploring. I loved 'seeing' all the famous passengers, too. When the ship started to sink Titanic Affair was literally unputdownable. A keeper.

5.0 out of 5 stars Highly recommended 18 May 2013
By ElaineG TOP 50 REVIEWER
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I have always shied away from Titanic based fiction because, let's face it, no matter how you dress up the story, you know how it is going to end = the ship is going to sink, and nothing will change that. So I was pleased when I found I really enjoyed this story. The main theme running through the book is the romance between ordinary girl Emilia and super rich Carl, and this made really good reading. At first I did wonder if I was reading a sequel, because there is a "story before the story starts" which is revealed in good time, so that Emilia is a "woman with a mystery in her past" when we meet her.
You know virtually from their first meeting that Emilia and Carl are attracted to each other, but the author still manages to keep you interested, wanting to know if, how and when they will take matters further and to what end, knowing the fate that is in store for them.

There are some wonderful colourful characters in the book including the busy body matrons who are determined to keep the couple apart for their own selfish reasons as well as the evil Mr Barker who has his own plans for Emilia. The descriptions of the ship, its crew and passengers on that maiden voyage really bring the story to life in such a way that whilst reading the book I actually forgot that the ship was going to hit an iceberg and sink, and was really quite shocked for a moment when disaster struck. I found that the part of the book dealing with the iceberg and sinking was well paced and gripping reading and went on for just the right amount of time, without taking up hundreds and hundreds of pages so that I didn't lose interest.

The author has obviously done an incredible amount of research for the book, and it certainly pays off.

Highly recommended romance read.

4.0 out of 5 stars Surprisingly enchanting! 27 Dec 2013

As a massive Titanic buff and the proud new owner of a Kindle, I decided to purchase this book a few days ago and ended up reading most of it in one sitting! I'm not the biggest of romance fans, but this was really quite wonderful to read. I wished it could've been a bit darker, and certain plot points could have been expanded or a bit more well-written, but I enjoyed it nonetheless. Well worth two quid!

5.0 out of 5 stars read this book!!! 14 July 2004
Format:Hardcover
the Titanic Affair has a wonderful balance of romance and historical fact woven into it and in my opinion is so much better than the movie. From the decadent settings to the deadly collision, Amanda P Grange makes sure the reader is there every step of the way. Once you start reading this book, it's impossible to put down

5.0 out of 5 stars 6 stars!!! 24 Jun 2013
By izzie
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
This book is actually amazing. I have re-read it 5 times already having only bought it 3 weeks ago. This book is magical and for anyone who loves a historical fiction book. It contains a few surprieses, moments where i had to get out tissues, moments where i had to stop myself smiling too much. If there was a 6th star I would award it.

5.0 out of 5 stars Brilliant detail and a happy ending! 31 Dec 2012
By Sophie
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
A happy ending! Much more satisfying than the film!

This was a lovely story. Knowing the story of the Titanic I was dubious about reading this but I am glad I did. The detail about the Titanic was really interesting and informative and the characters were great as Amanda Grange's characters always are! There was a particularly great back story to the hero and the heroine in this one. A sweet plot with some interesting twists and turns right to the very end!
