Ship of Dreams

(2007)
A novel by

 
A group of people meet on one of the Titanic's lifeboats, saved from death by random chance. These survivors, from different nationalities and walks of life, have only one factor in common: all have survived a tragedy that captures the world's imagination. This thread binds them together when they are rescued and taken to New York.

Two of the survivors are Irish emigrants hoping to make a new life for themselves. Both have a secret: one is carrying a baby and the other has buried a baby.

Also on board is a beautiful American girl who has scaled New York society to marry the heir to a hotel fortune. But her gilded life is threatened when he drowns. Then there is the French gentleman's secretary with ambitions to better himself, a US Cavalry officer convinced his dead wife intervened to rescue him, and an English teacher plucked from the sea by the Irish girls.

Certainties have been shattered and life in the Titanic's wake can never be the same again...
