Book Description

Two teenagers discover true love aboard the doomed ocean liner

Elizabeth Farr never wanted to return to America. During her family’s vacation abroad, she has fallen in love with England, and is despondent when her father refuses to let her stay. Returning to New York means having her debut into society, and that means a swiftly arranged marriage. Elizabeth will never go to college, never learn to be a reporter—as she sees it, her life is over as soon as the Titanic reaches port. Of course, if she’s unlucky, her life will be over far sooner than that.
 
As Elizabeth and her family settle into their first-class cabins, Katie Hanrahan, a young Irish girl with dreams of finding fortune in America, makes her way to a steerage berth. Both girls have plans for the future, but love and death are about to intervene.
 
This ebook features an illustrated biography of Diane Hoh including rare photos and never-before-seen documents from the author’s personal collection.

Diane Hoh (b. 1937) is a bestselling author of young adult fiction. Born in Warren, Pennsylvania, Hoh began her first novel, Loving That O’Connor Boy (1985),after seeing an ad in a publishing trade magazine requesting submissions for a line of young adult fiction.
 
After contributing novels to two popular series, Cheerleaders and the Girls of Canby Hall, Hoh found great success writing thrillers, beginning with Funhouse (1990), a Point Horror novel that became a national bestseller.

She is trying to escape both her debut into society and an impending marriage to a wealthy, older man she doesn't love, and to persuade her parents to allow her to go to college. Also in first class is Max Whittaker. Max defied his wealthy parents by travelling to Paris to study art. Now poor, he is only able to travel first class on the Titanic because his wealthy grandmother sent him the ticket. In third class is Katie Hanrahan, a 16 year old Irish girl dreaming of becoming a singer in New York. Katie has left her family and her small village to build a new life for herself. Also in third class are two brothers, Brian and Patrick Kelleher. They also dream of a new life in America. During the voyage, Elizabeth falls in love with Max, and is now more dertermined then ever to break off her engagement to the man she does not care for. Katie falls in love with Patrick, only Patrick is afraid to return her feelings, as he believes that Katie loves his brother Brian. It takes the sinking of the Titanic for true feelings to be revealed. But is it too late? Who will survive? Will Elizabeth, Max, Patrick, Brian, and Katie be among those who get out alive?

3.0 out of 5 stars Good, but... November 2, 2000
Format:Mass Market Paperback
Well first of all let me say that I actually really enjoyed this book. But I couldn't give it 5 stars because it doesn't seem as if the book was really Diane Hoh's writing. I mean, is it just a coincedence that it happened to come out at the same time as James Camerons Titanic came on video? If you're still not following me here listen to the story line, artist (first class yes but still) meets stuck up young fist class lady suffering from an arranged marriage to someone she does not want to marry. Her mother AHEM insists...does this sound like a certain billion dollar movie you may know of?

5.0 out of 5 stars A truly amazing novel! May 28, 2000
By A Customer
Format:Mass Market Paperback
Titanic: A Long Night is one of the best Titanic stories. It was so much more interesting than the movie. The four characters focused on were the perfect hero/heroines and although the book took place over only four days, you had a good idea of their personalities, which were adventurous, brave and nice. I thought the plotline for Elizabeth Farr and Max Whittaker was a lot like the movie's, but I did like the focus on some third class travellers - Kate Hanrahan and Paddy Kelleher. It was such a romantic book and I just couldn't put it down! The novel was well-done because everything about it was perfectly historical and factual, although the main characters, Elizabeth, Max, Paddy, Kate, Lily Costello and Brian Kelleher are fictitious. It is their tale of events on the huge White Star Line disaster. The dialogue in it was believable and so descriptive without being boring. For the second time I've read it, I always save it for the night to read while I'm under a warm comforter. But the first time, I was half scared and thought they'd all die. The story of the Titanic has moved me to tears many times and this one was no exception, but the characters and everything were much more beautiful than Kate Winslet and Leo DiCaprio (even though he's a babe!) and James Cameron's film making. Maybe because of the ending... but I don't want to spoil it! Diane Hoh is an exceptional writer. Read for yourself and form your own opinion on this great novel!

4.0 out of 5 stars For Titanic fans: READ THIS BOOK!!!!!!! July 8, 2002
Format:Mass Market Paperback|Verified Purchase
This book was great. I learned more from this book because it was in so much detail that you felt like you were witnessing everything. The book has alter egos, which at times can be very confusing, especially when the great ship starts to sink. One part is about Elizabeth Farr; traveling in first class. Elizabeth is expected to marry a boring man after she gets back to New York. Elizabeth soon meets a young traveler named Max Whittaker, the son of aquantences. Elizabeth is jealous at the fact that Max is independant, and Elizabeth wants to know how he did it. The other part is about 3 Irish third-class passengers, hoping to make a better life in America; Kathleen Hanrahan, and the brothers: Brian and Patrick Kelleher. When the Titanic begins to sink, the full potential of each character comes out with a beautifully written ending. Their are only two problems. One, the book kept on flipping back in forth from 3rd class to 1st, which got confusing when the Titanic sinks. And the second, the author took some ideas from the movie; but gives a new zest to those ideas. I would highly recommend this book to anyone who is interested in the sinking of the Titanic.

5.0 out of 5 stars Greatest Book I Ever Read!!! February 22, 1999
By A Customer
Format:Mass Market Paperback
The book is about 4 teenagers and how they try to survive the disaster of the Titanic. I'm only 11, but everyone should read this book! I will be looking for the sequel soon.After you start reading you just can't stop!I think if this story was a movie that it would be more successful then the James Cameron film "Titanic" . If you don't have the book I suggest that you get it. It will be worth your money.I love the Titanic and I love this book to. Even though it's 370 pages you'll read it over and over. I'm not a person who really likes to read , but I read this book and will read it again. The author Diane Hoh is now my favorite author and I hope that she keeps on writing.

This book was easy to read, fast-paced, yet intriguing enough to keep you guessing. Even exciting. A tale told from both sides; the rich and the to-do-rich.
