In this heartfelt historical fiction romance, a survivor's story encourages a troubled young woman to put her life back together, with the knowledge that life and love mean everything, and deserve appreciating to the fullest.
The author does not back down from the horror and tragedy of the event, but still conveys hope, for the survivors and those who draw inspiration from their stories. Worthwhile for history and romance readers.
The Girl Who Came Home by Hazel Gaynor is a story of the Titanic based on the true story of the Addergoole Fourteen, fourteen Irish immigrants who boarded the Titanic to sail to a new life in America. Eleven perished when the Titanic sank, and three survived. It tells the story of one survivor-Maggie – through descriptions of the journey, Maggie's journals, and the research her great-granddaughter Grace does years later.
