A tragic collision with an iceberg. A ruthless quest to assign blame. Can one young woman stand her ground in the face of a deadly mob?
North Atlantic Ocean, 1912. Kate Royston longs to bury her family’s shame. Struggling to start a new life on board the Carpathia, she’s startled by her own tenacity as she helps rescue the Titanic’s desperate survivors. But when they’re forced to return to New York City, Kate’s wounded sense of self-worth leaves her stranded in the chaotic streets without a passport or papers.
Digging deep to find her courage, she negotiates her way to safety and becomes entangled in the high-profile investigation of the shocking disaster. And though she’s dismayed by the witch hunt she observes, she’s terrified that pitting her eyewitness account up against powerful men with a clear agenda will leave her ruined.
Can Kate’s humble perspectives stem the tide of public rage?
