Early morning on April 15, 1912, the RMS Titanic, on her glorious maiden voyage from Southampton to New York, sank after striking an iceberg in the North Atlantic. Thus the ship declared to be unsinkable was lost in one of the most infamous tragedies in history. Even now, a century later, the events surrounding the Titanic continue to haunt and intrigue us.

Critically acclaimed author Deobrah Hopkinson weaves together the voices of Titanic survivors and witnesses to the disaster to bring the horrors of that terrible night to life. there’s nine year old Frankie Goldsmith; Violet Jessop, a young stewardess; Jack Thayer, an American high school senior; Colonel Archibald Gracie, a well-to-do gentleman; William Murdoch, a brave seaman; Charlotte Collyer, a younger mother on her way to start a new life; and many others

Their recollections are filled with heart-stopping action, devastating drama, and fascinating historical details. Now, the saga of the Titanic is told in a brand new way, the stories of the survivors capturing the fateful voyage, from the majestic liner’s celebrated launch in Belfast to her cataclysmic icy end and the Carpathia’s rescue of the survivors.
