Grace Winter, 22, is both a newlywed and a widow. She is also on trial for her life.
In the summer of 1914, the elegant ocean liner carrying her and her husband Henry across the Atlantic suffers a mysterious explosion. Setting aside his own safety, Henry secures Grace a place in a lifeboat, which the survivors quickly realize is over capacity. For any to live, some must die.
As the castaways battle the elements, and each other, Grace recollects the unorthodox way she and Henry met, and the new life of privilege she thought she'd found. Will she pay any price to keep it?
The Lifeboat is a page-turning novel of hard choices and survival, narrated by a woman as unforgettable and complex as the events she describes.

Interesting and well written.
I thoroughly enjoyed this book. It brought out so many elements of human nature - the will to survive and endure and do whatever necessary to live. In contrast, it was interesting to see how others gave in and gave up more easily. It was very interesting to observe all the different personalities and how they coped with each other and the myriad of circumstances. It was also interesting to see how society judged something they could never understand. The good and the bad in people was laid raw to see. Wonderful!!
