Hazel Gaynor has written a novel that connects two generations across 70 years – 17-year-old Maggie Murphy and 22-year-old Grace Butler.

The inspiration for this novel was the story of 14 people who set forth from a single small county in Ireland, bound for new lives in America. They had all booked passage together, set to cross the Atlantic on the largest and most majestic ocean liner ever built – the Titanic. Of the fourteen who left that parish, only three survived. This statistic made for the most loss of life per capita of any region represented on the Titanic.
