The Girl Who Came Home

A Novel of the Titanic

This book can be downloaded and read in Apple Books on your Mac or iOS device.

Description

Inspired by true events, the New York Times bestselling novel The Girl Who Came Home is the poignant story of a group of Irish emigrants aboard RMS Titanic—a seamless blend of fact and fiction that explores the tragedy's impact and its lasting repercussions on survivors and their descendants.

Ireland, 1912. Fourteen members of a small village set sail on RMS Titanic, hoping to find a better life in America. For seventeen-year-old Maggie Murphy, the journey is bittersweet. Though her future lies in an unknown new place, her heart remains in Ireland with Séamus, the sweetheart she left behind. When disaster strikes, Maggie is one of the lucky few passengers in steerage who survives. Waking up alone in a New York hospital, she vows never to speak of the terror and panic of that terrible night ever again.

Chicago, 1982. Adrift after the death of her father, Grace Butler struggles to decide what comes next. When her Great Nana Maggie shares the painful secret she harbored for almost a lifetime about the Titanic, the revelation gives Grace new direction—and leads her and Maggie to unexpected reunions with those they thought lost long ago.

Customer Reviews

Pleasantly Surprised

Great book! Somewhat predictable, but a good read nevertheless.

Couldn't put it down!

Even though there has so much written and shown about the Titanic, this book gives you a different perspective. I thoroughly enjoyed reading the characters' stories and seeing how they intertwine with each other.

Interesting

I haven't read it yet, but I will just out of curiosity. I work at the titanic museum and I actually play Catherine Murphy (margret murphys sister) on the ship. Even though this is just fiction, I wish that the facts were correct. Catherine was 18 and margret was 22, there are many more facts I've seen just in the description you read before you purchase that were very incorrect. I'm just a history nerd and very protective of my Murphy girls.
