Although we think we know the story of the Titanic - the famously unsinkable ship that hit an iceberg on its maiden voyage from Britain to America in April 1912 - little has been written about what happened to the survivors after the tragedy.

How did the loss of the ship shape the lives of the people who survived? How did those who were saved feel about those who perished? And how did they remember that terrible night? Shadow of the Titanic will shed new light on this unforgettable event by showing how the disaster continued to shape the lives of those passengers who escaped the sinking ship.

Listener Opinions

    " Good but not great. More about the lives of the few steerage passengers would have been a positive addition. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Jennifer | 2/15/2014

    " An incredible collection of survivor stories that have been blended with biographical research into an addictive and highly readable tale of what happened to those who survived the sinking of the Titanic. Andrew Wilson has taken the stories of the survivors that we know and thoroughly details inconsistencies, realities, and the motivations/reasons of the survivors. Some of these stories are beyond tragic while others provide hope in the determination to survive and live life for those who had perished so tragically that April night in 1912. This is a book that will fill in the blank left in Titanic history of what happened to the survivors after they stepped off the Carpathia and onto the pier in New York City. It will captivate all readers with its interwoven stories. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Keith Slade | 2/12/2014

    " Extremely interesting stories of what happened to survivors of the Titanic. There were a handful of suicides, some became obsessive about it, and some had normal lives. Totally worth reading. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Deanne Wildsmith | 1/22/2014

    " A very interesting read on how the disaster affected the lives of the survivors. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Tessie | 1/22/2014

    " This book was very eye opening. I am a Titanic buff for many many years and I am always curious to read about true stories of the event. It's interesting to see how the tragedy continued to affect the survivors for the rest of their lives. So many of the stories end with the sinking of the ship but this one went beyond that. Good research done by the author as well. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Marguerite | 1/19/2014

    " good book but am finding it very hard to have sympathy for some of the people involved. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Eileen | 1/16/2014

    " This was really interesting. I never really knew anything about the survivors of the Titanic or what the rest of their lives were like. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Amy Wallace | 1/13/2014

    " This was the only book I bought from the Titanic exhibit, and I wasn't disappointed. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Sharon Scrimshaw | 12/24/2013

    " It was a great book to give insight to what happened to the survivors after the sinking of the Titanic. Easy read. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Danielle | 12/12/2013

    " Nice to read stories of people who survived, but most of the chapters were at least 40 pages and some of the stories seemed to drag on. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Karen | 10/5/2013

    " I was hoping for more from this book. Unfortunately Wilson only related what happened to Lady Astor after losing her husband in the sinking and a couple other passengers. It just wasn't very interesting. I wouldn't recommend it. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Mary Ontko | 3/19/2013

    " This is not the kind of book I usually read anymore (disaster related) but I actually don't know much about this and it was really interesting to read about the rest of the survivors' lives. Pretty good book. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Arlene | 2/27/2013

    " I thought it was very moving. The survivors had a rough time dealing with the tragedy. They all coped differently with surviving the sinking of the Titanic. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Sara | 7/19/2012

    " Factual titanic stories about the lives of the survivors AFTER the sinking. Interesting. "

    " Loved it but got slow towards the end. "
