Publisher's Summary

For John and Laura Foster, what began as a fairy-tale honeymoon in 1857 aboard the steamship SS Vandervere quickly turns into a nightmare. A terrible hurricane strikes, and the grand ship begins to sink. 

Just before it goes under, a rescue ship appears on the horizon. But it only has room enough to save the women and children. 

Laura soon finds herself sailing away toward New York city on a ship filled with orphans and widows to meet John's family, whom she's never met. Desperate for a miracle, Laura braces herself to face life alone.

Pretty good

This is a good story to listen to when you’re doing other things. Not gripping or something that you can’t put down because it’s pretty predictable. I enjoyed the audible version. A few times the reader gets two characters’ (Joel & John) names confused but good otherwise.
