Publisher's Summary

On April 15, 1912, Lydia Beaumont is on her way to a new life with a boundless hope in love and faith. Her new friendship with Caroline Chadwick is bonded even more as they plan Lydia's wedding on board the "grandest ship ever built." Then both women suffer tragic losses when the "unsinkable" Titanic goes down. Can each survive the scars the disaster left on their lives?

Decades later, Alan Morris feels like a failure until he discovers he is the descendant of an acclaimed, successful, heroic novelist who went down with the Titanic. Will he find his identity with the past, or will he listen to Joanna Bettencourt, Caroline's granddaughter, who says inner peace and success come only with a personal relationship with the Lord? Will those who survived and their descendants be able to find a love more powerful than their pain?

Easy listen...

What did you love best about Hearts that Survive?

This one's an easy listen with enough intrigue and suspense to be engaging, but not so deep that you have to remain super-focused to get it. Great commute read!

What other book might you compare Hearts that Survive to and why?

Danielle Steel's "No Greater Love." Girl falls in love on the Titanic, boy drowns on Titanic, life forever changed...

Any additional comments?

I know people are going to say this story has been told before and complain about that, and it's all true. If you're looking for something about the Titanic that's new and different, go for Hazel Gaynor's "The Girl Who Came Home." But if you're looking for an easy listen, clean romance, with a famous historical event (Titanic fans anyone?) - then this book is perfect for those folks. I enjoyed for what it is!
