Con artist Charlotte Digby lied her way through London and onto the Titanic. The disaster could be her chance at a new life - if she hides the truth about her past. Esme Harper, a wealthy American, mourns the end of a passionate affair and fears that everything beautiful is slipping from her grasp. And Anna Halversson, a Swedish farm girl in search of a fresh start in America, is tormented by the screams that ring out from the water. Is one of them calling her name? Twenty years later, a sudden death brings the three women back together.

I was instantly drawn into the story of the three girls and the history of the Titanic. Unfortunately, throughout the story, I cared less and less about each individual storyline and was sort of waiting for the story to end. A good effort, but missed the mark for me.
