Reviews for Hearts That Survive
Hearts that Survive
I have read a few books that revolve around the Titanic, but "Hearts that Survive" easily is my favorite. The author provides the reader with very realistic characters and scenes that make you feel as if your right on board the ship. Even though I knew ultimately what would happen with the ship this story took a few twists I didn't expect.
Lydia Beaumont knew her father had hoped that she would marry thirty-five year old Craven Dowd the man who ran his railroad company, but she has other ideas. Her heart belongs to John Ancell, and she is expecting his baby. While aboard the Titanic she tells John the news and he immediately decides they should marry. They have a beautiful wedding but then the ship starts to sink!
Yvonne Lehman really knows how to spin a story. It was so easy to experience the highs and lows right along with the characters in this story. I felt like I was seeing the tragedy first hand, the chaos that ensued as the ship began to sink seemed very realistic. It was interesting to see how the sinking impacted not only the survivors but their families as well. Overall, this was a compelling story that allows us to feel tragedy and loss, but also hope and forgiveness. A story that grabbed my heart and wouldn't let go! Highly recommended.
