This is another book from KSL's like Downton Abbey list. I am torn on this one. I could not get into this book. It took me sooo long to read. It took way too long to establish a real story line. The story alternates between three times (the father's youth/the Titanic/3 years after the Titanic.) I felt like the Titanic story could have been left out. There is enough told in the 3 years later chapters that you don't need to read about time actually on the ship.
Once we really got to the storyline, it was interesting and I wished that they had more time to explore that story. (Don't you hate when that happens?)
So, perhaps this is a better book for someone who just picks up a book once in a while to read. This isn't a book for sitting down and just reading though.
Enjoy, if you don't have a lot of time for reading.
