Annie Allen watches the Titanic set sail. She wishes her brother, Owen, had allowed her to go along with him, never dreaming the most precious individual in her life would soon be a casualty.
Even though he faced a sure death, Owen worked hard to secure the safety of his young friend, Michael Dunnagan. Annie deals with resentment that Michael lived while her brother died.
Owen made Michael promise to bring Annie to America. His correspondence and the encouragement of her friend, soften her heart. Friendship turns to love, but will a world gone mad keep them from ever realizing their dreams?
Cathy Gohlke's beautiful writing, stirring plots, and vibrant characters make her one of my favorite writers. This release comes at the 100th year anniversary of the sinking of the Titanic. She knows exactly when to send the tension into overdrive. Just when you think everything will work out, the characters face another hurdle to overcome.
This book is a keeper from both a historical and a romantic perspective. Don't miss the latest offering from this Christy Award-Winning Author.
Disclosure: Cathy sent me the book. As always, the opinions are all mine. I did not receive any remuneration for this review.
