I was very excited after I received this book to find out that it is the same author as The Yellow House. I read that book quite a few years ago and really enjoyed it.

It was very easy to get into. Two sisters, Nora and Delia, are excited to be starting a new life in America. The two sisters are as different as night and day. They are leaving from Ireland on the ill-fated Titanic. Of course, we all know what happened during that journey.

They both survive the journey but get separated during the rescue operation. Neither sister knows what has happened to the other. This is when the story becomes a little hokey for me.

The book alternates chapters between Nora and Delia. While the sisters are totally unaware of the final fate of eachother, the reader knows exactly what is happening.

The story had tons of potential but the way it was presented was too far on the unbelievable side. Just too many coincidences for my taste. I don’t always need a story to be realistic because I read for entertainment. I will not go on about this fact because I don’t want to give out spoilers.

I never felt a connection with most of the characters. I think they needed more depth.

But, enough of the negative. The story did keep a good pace and it did remain interesting. I already know from reading the other reviews that the things that bothered me did not bother others.

In the end, it was an interesting and fast read. And, it ended the way it should have.

Thank you to NetGalley and the publisher for an advance reader’s copy
