I would have loved to know more about Gerda and Jack, but I suppose this would have been difficult due the the fact that this was a fictionalised account of a real-life couple.
As for the remaining 36% of the download, this was an extract from "No Place for a Lady" by the same author - a bit of a con really. But one way to publicise your work, I suppose.
This was a big disappointment as the eShort only had an estimated reading time of 42 minutes. Maybe it would have been better to have combined two e-Short stories in the Kindle download, rather than just one very short story and an extract from another story - which was no use nor ornament.
The story focuses on the real life romance of Jack Welsh and Gerda Neilson who fell in love aboard the Lusitania only to face the tragedy of the ship being hit by a wartime torpedo that nearly tore the couple apart. In this short story, Gill Paul manages to convey the desperation and terror that passengers must have felt as they tried to get away from the Lusitania as it rapidly sank to the depths of the Irish Sea. She makes you believe that the power of love saved this tragic couple who had met and fell in love only days before. She pulls at the old heartstrings.
We Sink or Swim Together is a harrowing little short that will have you gasping for breath until the last page.
We Sink or Swim Together by Gill Paul is available now.

I had high hopes for this story. Unfortunately it fell a bit flat. While short stories are of necessity brief, I felt a few more pages would have added to the story. The tale ends rather abruptly with only a two sentence epilogue. I would have liked to follow the story to its natural conclusion.
