Tricia Goyer has once again written a fantastic masterpiece that I will remember for a very long time. I could visualize the grandeur of the magnificent ship, and could almost hear the excitement of the passengers as they were boarding the Titanic.
Amelia didn't have much for worldly possessions, but she had the biggest heart imaginable. When she had the opportunity to bless a young man down on his luck with a ticket to board the great ship, she didn't hesitate for a moment.
A story that resembles the well known tale of the prodigal son, Amelia somehow befriends a wealthy father and his two adult sons, yet she was not aware of the family history and hurts. The fateful voyage brought so much more than any of the three men had expected, and Amelia was at times caught in the middle.
Desperation, heartache, faith, forgiveness and redemption are just a few of the words that I would use to describe this book. Once again, I must give an absolute top rating for this stunning new novel by one of my favourite authors.
