SilveryMooncoverAbout the book:

Amelia Gladstone's hopes are tied up in the Titanic--hopes for a reunion with her sister and an introduction to an admirer. But when she offers a spare ticket to a down-and-out young man, her fate is about to change. Quentin Walpole is stunned when a sweet lady secures his passage to America--and even more surprised to find his wealthy father and older brother on board the ship. Suddenly Amelia finds herself caught between the attentions of two men, but who should she entrust her heart to? As the fateful night arrives, will Amelia lose everything to the icy waters?

Watch the trailer for the book below.

My Thoughts:

I was excited when I was chosen to review this book. I love historical fiction and really enjoyed Goyer’s Chasing Mona Lisa. In terms of historical fiction, it is great. The descriptions are well done (I’m sure I got ‘lost’ on the Titanic while reading *wink*). The only thing I really did not like were the wishy-washy attitudes of the characters in (just a few) spots. It doesn’t happen often, thank goodness, but I found myself rolling my eyes when I came to those parts. But then again, that’s a good writer when they can get you engaged with the characters Winking smile.

I appreciated the way Amelia could see the difference in status from 2nd class to 1st class. I would love to have read her going to 3rd class- those scenes could have been quite wonderful. Goyer places real people on the Titanic with Amelia- people who were truly there. I believe she captures the atmosphere of excitement that those aboard, and those seeing the travelers off, quite well.

I do not like romance books- the less the better. This one has just a tinge of romance, it’s more of a love story than a romance. I enjoyed that the focus was not on the ‘romance’ of the characters rather it was a part of the whole. It was very tastefully done. Cannot wait to read more of Goyer’s books!

I received this book free from LitFuse in exchange for an honest review and participation in the blog tour. No compensation was given. All opinions are my own. See Disclosure/Policies.
