Litfuse Blog Tour--By the Light of the Silvery Moon

About The Book:

Amelia Gladstone's hopes are tied up in the Titanic--hopes for a reunion with her sister and an introduction to an admirer. But when she offers a spare ticket to a down-and-out young man, her fate is about to change.

Quentin Walpole is stunned when a sweet lady secures his passage to America--and even more surprised to find his wealthy father and older brother on board the ship. Suddenly Amelia finds herself caught between the attentions of two men, but who should she entrust her heart to? As the fateful night arrives, will Amelia lose everything to the icy waters?

My Review:

This is my first Tricia Goyer book but will not be my last.  Her story about the Titanic comes at a most timely point as its 100 year anniversary is approaching.  Thus making her subject and plot all the more interesting to me.

By incorporating a compassionate woman, wealthy yet loving father, stubborn son, and prodigal son, the author definitely set you up for an unforgettable journey. It was not until I was half way through the book, that I realized the story was written in a time period spanning only a week. This made for a  fast read. The author did a wonderful job at describing the surrounding scenery aboard the great floating palace. You could very well feel the lush carpets in first class, imagine the joy the second class passengers experienced at being on the ship of dreams, and almost hearing the rumble of different languages below in third class.

The majority of the story was aboard the Titanic, however, the sinking of the so called unsinkable ship was retold magnificently. Vivid descriptions allowed one to  envision each the battle of emotions waging war in the hearts of man-from confusion and shock,  screams of horror, even anger, to the sheer joy of being alive.

Though the majority of the book took place on the magnificent ship and lasted only a week, the author ended the story well leaving no loose ends to tie up. It incorporated everything from romance, to the power of forgiveness, the transformation of man through God, redemption of the prodigal son, and true everlasting love found only in Jesus. I would give this book a 5 out of 5.

I received this book for free from Litfuse Publicity in exchange for my honest opinion and review.

You can purchase this book at CBD.
