The premise is also so original. The Titanic has been done but not like this with Lady Duff Gordon who was the Prada of her day. Very clever. And we do root for our heroine - perfect as she is - until the end.
Of course, there is nonsense. Wholly unlikely that a maid from rural England would speak like this or have this sort of presence. Equally that Lady Duff would give here the time of day. And we know which love interest will win out from the start. And the goody journalist is a bit of a bore. The characters are all cardboard cut outs, cookie cutter writing but what the hell.
And what is a shame is that the scenes on the boat and in court are shortened.
But do enjoy - I did.
An interesting slant on the Titanic sinking and story around it. Don't know how much was factual or fictional, but a story that was difficult to put down once started.
