    1. I really enjoyed this novel. Despite the four hundred some pages, I devoured it in two days. Sarah and Lily come from a very tense household. Sarah gets herself pregnant and marries Ralph, unknowingly going from the frying pan into the fire. Sarah doesn't realize that Ralph has a cruel, dark side. On top of that, he has a thing for her sister, Lily. Lily wards off his advances not realizing Ralph's determination to get revenge on her. She takes up with his brother John. Meanwhile, family scandal [...]

    2. I grew up reading authors like Lyn Andrews, Meg Hutchinson, Josephine Cox - all the kind of authors that write very well, and write for a specific time period. That period is quite often before/during/after World I & II. I bought this book, purely because it was about the Titanic - as depicted on the cover - but got a very similar author to the above. However, it wasn't AS good as the above authors. It wouldn't be a book I would normally pick up, had it not been about the Titanic. I'd never [...]

    3. I thought it was a good read. A bit long perhapse titanic was what interested me in the first place and unfortunately it doesn't enter into the story until 2/3rds into the book but it was well written and I could really see it as the writer described it. Overall a good read.

    4. I really enjoyed the story and the twists and turns but if I had to read the word "bairns" one more time I'm not sure I could have finished.
