The Titanic was such a Tragedy. It is ironic the world is in an uproar with the tragedy of war, so near the same date as when the Titanic left its shores and so many lives were lost.

We remember and honor the well over 2,000 individuals who lost their lives and for those others who sacrificed so greatly among the survivors. It is tragic, yet inspiring.

I appreciate Peggy Wirgau and the many other individuals who have spent hours, days, weeks and months and even years on research to make these Historical Fiction stories come to life in such an accurate way. I am a History “Buff” yet I learn so much I never knew before through Fiction and Non-Fiction writing by talented, dedicated authors, such as Peggy Wirgau!

Book Description:

“Sometimes we have to go a long way to find out who we are.”
The year is 1912. When doctors in India are unable to treat her baby brother’s illness, Ruth’s missionary parents decide there is one solution: move her mother and the children across the world—to Michigan.
But India is the only home Ruth knows. In a matter of days, she must leave Papa and all she loves behind, abandon her dream of one day playing violin in the Calcutta Orchestra, and embark on a rollicking, four-week journey across the Arabian and Mediterranean Seas, followed by the voyage to New York aboard the luxurious, ill-fated RMS Titanic.
Ruth’s story is one of courage and self-sacrifice as she earns her sea legs and faces the unknown, culminating in a desperate, tragic night she will never forget.
