I found a lot of similarities between this and my other favourite Titanic fictional book, No Greater Love, by Danielle Steel. Both books deal with the Titanic and how it affects the lives of the characters for years afterwards. The characters in this were well thought out, and well described, so much so, you almost feel like you know them by the end of the book.
The only quibbles I do have with the book, are the title and the the Titanic itself. The Captain's Daughter is completely the wrong title for the book, as the person to whom it refers features very briefly, although there are one or two other brief references to her. Otherwise a totally different title would have fitted the book better. Whether the author was initially writing a different story, or whether it was the publisher's decision for that title, it was the wrong one. Also, yes I know everyone knows what allegedly happened on the Titanic by now, but the sinking happens by page 50 of the book. Although we had a nice introduction to the characters, I did feel it was a bit rushed and would liked to have seen the actual events expanded a little bit.
Quibbles aside, I recommend this not only to fans of the Titanic, but to anyone interested in a good historical read.
Spanning from 1912 to 1959, The Captain’s Daughter ties the tale of the two women and their families to the night of the sinking. Ella’s survival is based on a legend of Captain Smith handing a baby into a lifeboat after the ship went down, while Titanic heroine Molly Brown makes an impression upon Celeste. The characters are vibrant and well drawn, with actions made believable through devastating circumstances. Not only do we experience the loss of the Titanic, but we also live through the tragedies of both world wars. My only complaint is that the book is a bit slow in spots, but the grand opening and even more heartfelt ending make it an entirely enjoyable saga in which to lose oneself. Recommended.
Thank you to the Historical Novel Society for providing a copy of this novel for review.

While the story line was good the book seemed to just drag on and on. It took to long and added little to the story. I just jumped to read the endPublished 2 months ago by M Jane
