A weak and unbelievable storyline populated by a whole town full of characters that all end up as criminals or murder victims.

Really enjoyed the storyline with it's unexpected twists but distracted by the irrelevant chunks about what to eat for dinner, where to go for a day out etc that had no bearing on the plot. Also found the Epilogue a bit of an anticlimax.

The first few chapters are dull, boring and repetitive but becomes a relatively good intriguing story with several twists and turns.

Elizabeth Farr never wanted to return to America. During her family’s vacation abroad, she has fallen in love with England, and is despondent when her father refuses to let her stay. Returning to New York means having her debut into society, and that means a swiftly arranged marriage. Elizabeth will never go to college, never learn to be a reporter - as she sees it, her life is over as soon as the Titanic reaches port. Of course, if she’s unlucky, her life will be over far sooner than that.
