Book Description

Emilia Cavendish is given a first class ticket on board Titanic and sets out to start a new life with her godmother. The first few days aboard the world-famous 'unsinkable' liner are everything she hoped for as she enjoys the unaccustomed luxuries of the fabulous ship. She makes new friends amongst her fellow passengers - not least the darkly handsome, if somewhat overbearing, Carl Latimer. But when Titanic hits the iceberg, Emilia finds herself in danger from an old enemy on board, and as she struggles to escape him, Titanic starts to sink. . .

Review for Titanic Affair:
“This is a well-crafted and fast moving story. Using the setting of the maiden voyage of the Titanic takes a degree of courage on the part of any author and in this case it paid off. I was delighted to find a fresh slant on the well-known events of the tragic voyage. What stands out is the excellent use of historical detail such as the Crown Derby china, the electric horse, the Oxford marmalade and the author's ability to blend in real passengers like Mr Bruce Ismay, the chairman of the White Star Line, with her fictional characters in a seamless manner.”- Myfanwy Cook, Historical Novel Society

Author’s note
This novel presents an accurate view of life on board Titanic as well as providing a detailed account of the disaster. It was carefully researched using contemporary newspaper articles, survivors’ accounts and official documents. Sometimes the eye-witness accounts varied and in these cases I used the account which best fit my story. Woven into the accurate portrayal of Titanic’s voyage and ultimate sinking is a love affair which transcends the disaster, providing a thoughtful yet entertaining read.

4.0 out of 5 stars Surprisingly good spin on an old story. March 6, 2005
Format:Hardcover
I am a bit of a Titanic buff and will read almost anything concerning the ship and disaster. I admit I was skeptical of this book but found it surprisingly enjoyable. It took a fresh spin on an old story and even threw in a bit of a mystery. The writing at times is amateurish, and a bit repetitive (everything seemed to look "smart"). Some of the plot devices require a major suspension of belief (i.e., the side story of Carl's mother's "miraculous" cure). But the plot itself overcomes most of the faults. It is generally a fun, engaging read and not to be taken as serious literature, but still enjoyable.

4.0 out of 5 stars For Titanic Buffs October 9, 2006
Format:Hardcover
"Titanic Affair" is a novel aimed at Titanic buffs. "Titanic Affair" is just one novel in a long line of novels that take a historical event and fashion a fictional tale around the event. Take "Raise the Titanic" for instance. "Titanic Affair" is not bad as novels go and there is enough historical drama present to make most Titanic buffs take note.

5.0 out of 5 stars A keeper June 12, 2004
Format:Hardcover
I took this book out of the library and then I bought a copy. I loved it. It was a much better story than the one in the film, though I love the film, too, but I didn't like the ending. In this book, I was really on the ship with the characters and I loved 'seeing' round the ship as the heroine went exploring. I loved 'seeing' all the famous passengers, too. When the ship started to sink Titanic Affair was literally unputdownable. A keeper.

1.0 out of 5 stars Disappointed April 4, 2012
By JTK
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
Warning - portions of plot revealed!!! Unfortunately I purchased the book on the basis of other reviews. I was so disappointed that I spent even $4.99 for it. I really felt like she took the 1997 movie script and rewrote it with a happy ending. I can't tell you how many times I rolled my eyes in frustration with this story. From the conversation about not enough life boats, to the fact that that the "new money" kindly mother just "happened" to purchase a gown for a spiteful neighbors daughter that was too small and how it would just fit our plucky, beautiful herione who could then join the haughty folks in the first class dining room with her head held high... She even jumped out of the lifeboat as it was decending to be with her love - I am surprised she didn't name the lovers Rose and Jack. I would not recommend this book at all.

5.0 out of 5 stars a rushed but happy ending October 3, 2013
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
After finishing the drama Titanic: Blood & Steel, I wanted to read a happy ending Titanic novel. This was a pleasant read even if there were several typos/grammatical errors and the ending was a bit rushed and was unbelievable lol. However, it satiated my needs.

*SPOILER ALERT* Reading of the love & admiration the characters have for one another within this book reminds me of my own love and makes me so incredibly happy that I've found him. I could nearly feel the warm relief when Emelia found Carl.

4.0 out of 5 stars Light, Quick read September 29, 2013
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
While I did enjoy the book and its story line, I just wish it was a little bit longer, to give the busy bodies their comeuppance and to finish it right. Yes, it boarders on the movie, which annoyed me a little, not so much the characters, they were enjoyable, but the similarities,maybe backwards but still the same, Emilia was "money" but was knocked down to the poor label and Carl was poor but became a self made millionaire who met his match in Emilia. The role reversal was so similar to the movie and I wish the plot was a little less "copying". It is a good read, but if you seen the movie ( who hasn't), you may get a little agitated. The only thing I wanted from this book was an epilogue, to give a more happy ending,marriage, family, to put the biddies in their place and to have Ms. Brown in their happy ending. A light read for a day on the beach or when you are looking for that short book to read.
