From the Publisher
From the Historical Novel Society Review: 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. --This text refers to the Hardcover edition.

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.
Amanda Grange certainly did her homework to gather the facts and she is to be congratulated on her talented writing and making her story so gripping to the very end.
Such a tragedy and must have been an awful experience for the survivors.
Emilia's character was rather difficult to fathom and it was hard to understand why Carl would be so attracted to her with so many knock-backs. Carl, however, appeared as a far more charismatic personality.
This was well written but suffered from lack of proof-reading. It had a rather abrupt ending, I thought.
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!
Emilia is fortunate to be offered a first class stateroom on the liner's maiden voyage. On the ship she is subjected to the snobbery of the upper class, is fleeing from the threats of Mr Barker and falls in love with the charming Carl. Later in the novel, when the fated iceberg is struck, Amanda Grange is able to paint a vivid picture of the disbelief then horror felt by the passengers.
Once I started this book, I did not want to put it down.
