Tess, an aspiring seamstress, thinks she’s had an incredibly lucky break when she is hired by famous designer Lady Lucile Duff Gordon to be her personal maid on theTitanic. Once on board, Tess catches the eye of two men—a kind sailor and an enigmatic Chicago businessman—who offer differing views of what lies ahead for her in America. But on the fourth night, disaster strikes, and amidst the chaos, Tess is one of the last people allowed on a lifeboat.
The survivors are rescued and taken to New York, but when rumors begin to circulate about the choices they made, Tess is forced to confront a serious question. Did Lady Duff Gordon save herself at the expense of others? Torn between loyalty to Lucile and her growing suspicion that the media’s charges might be true, Tess must decide whether to stay quiet and keep her fiery mentor’s good will or face what might be true and forever change her future.
BONUS: This ebook edition includes an excerpt from Kate Alcott's The Daring Ladies of Lowell.

It was a spellbinding book up until the last page. I even listened to it with Titantic music playing in the background. I got caught up in the story. She portrays each of the characters superbly.
Enjoyed the story
Wish it could have been a little longer as I would have liked
to know a bit more about the characters in the story.
Plodding, predictable ... Good for the sleep deprived.
