Another Titanic novel on board here! Tess really wants to use her talents as a dressmaker and designer, so making a rash decision, she quits her job as a maid and attempts to get hired on the Titanic. It is not as easy as she thought, and after surviving the horrible ordeal of the sinking, she finds life in America is not as dreamy as she imagined it would be. The court cases surrounding her benefactor, whose selfishness cost the lives of many more passengers is heartbreaking.
I was especially impressed at the reality that this author conveyed through the pages and through the simple maid, with talents for dressmaking. You feel the panic, and care in Tess, while the coldness and selfishness in Lucille is so clear you can taste it. She really knew no other way to survive, except by only preserving herself.

This book is a fictional tale of those things that surrounded the Titanic sinking.
