5.0 out of 5 stars
A cracking read but have your hankie ready!, 27 Mar 2012
As the 100th anniversary of Titanic is almost upon us I thought I should make an effort to read something about it and this was a great choice!
Clearly well researched, the details of life on board the ship as well as life in the Irish village are effectively recreated, drawing you straight into the story and into the characters' lives.
Although the events of Titanic are well known to most people, this novel uses a little known but tragic true story as a framework, adding another level of interest.
A moving and very readable novel. Hope there will be more to come from this writer!
