Want to read a gripping story about the lives of those involved in the era of the Titanic This is the book for you. Kate Maloney was headed for a new life in America; her friend, Cathy Madden was going with her; and, friends Daniel and Seamus, were sailing too. Some of those boarding the ship, had friends and family in America who had gone years before. This was a comfort to the families left behind in Ireland. The trip, it's pitfall, the heartaches, and the people met on the journey is the story in this book. The writing is excellent and I felt I was on the trip with the group of immigrants that looked forward to a better life. Extremely interesting and informational Authors Notes at the end were perfect. Thanks for a great read.
