The ship's passengers and crew quickly came to life as the ship began its decent to the bottom of the sea. Passengers soon found out that the Titanic had struck an iceberg. It was April 15, 1912, a day that would be remembered for a very long time. Passengers began to awake and rise from their beds to find out what all the commotion was about. Water began to flood below decks. The excitement and fear began to grow as it was evident that not all the 2,200 passengers on board were going to make it to their destination, let alone survive the night.
Jack Phillips and Harold Bride, the ship's radio officers, were desperately busy sending out a new signal for help . . . SOS! The Titanic was in dire need of help! The Carpathia heard and was on its way.
This book had a nice flow to it, a lot of excitement and tension. The beautiful watercolors bring a lot of grace and dignity to this work. I loved the story, but I must admit, I did break into a wide smile when I saw the name Charles Joughin, chief baker on the Titanic. He was purportedly a tad tipsy (well, maybe a LOT tipsy) when he entered the water. This probably saved his life, but in the book it simply states that he used the ship's "railing as a ladder and climbed to the rear of the ship. When she plunged, he neatly hopped off at the water's surface, barely wetting his hair."
