Reviewed at http://www.mandikayereads.com/archives/1366 (4/2/12)Despite my low rating, I did end up enjoying this book. The 3.5 stems primarily from the extraordinarily slow beginning. It took awhile before things started coming together, but when they did I found myself looking forward to turning the page.This book isn’t action-packed; there’s no murder or high speed chases. There is a young woman who misses her mother and sister, both of whom drowned on the Titanic; there is the story of a young sailor in China; and there is the story of a mother and daughter the night the Titanic sank. All three stories are expertly woven together to tell the tale of a family.And while I probably will never read this book again, I am glad to have read it.
