As the 100th anniversary of the sinking of the Titanic approaches, Goyer honors those which were lost and those who survived with a story filled with love, forgiveness and sacrifice. Her characters are well rounded and well thought out and they’ll touch the reader’s heart.

Amelia Gladstone is excited about being reunited with her sister in America. When she discovers an unkempt man trying to stow away, she gives him the extra ticket she has because her cousin decided not to accompany her. Quentin Wade has only himself to blame for losing all his inheritance. Now his chance at starting a new life in America might just come true when a stranger gives him a ticket to board the ship. When he learns his father and brother are also on the ship, he needs to keep himself hidden from them, but Amelia wants him to reconcile with them. Will an estranged family have the chance to make up? Can a young woman looking for true love realize her dream? Or will all of their dreams sink to the bottom of the ocean?
