From the cover: “In the early hours of 15 April 1912, the Atlantic Ocean was alive with the sound of screaming as 1,500 men, women and children of the once majestic liner Titanic were struggling to stay alive in the icy waters.
Then, as the ship sank to the ocean floor and the passengers slowly died from hypothermia, a deathly silence settled over the sea. The echoes of that night reverberated through the lives of each of the 705 survivors, and Shadow of the Titanic tells their extraordinary story.
Although we think we know the story of the Titanic — the famously unsinkable ship that hit an iceberg on its maiden voyage from Britain to America — little has been written about what happened to the survivors after the tragedy. How did they cope in the aftermath of this horrific event? How did those who were saved feel about those who perished? And how did they remember that terrible night, a disaster that has been likened to the destruction of a small town?
Today, one hundred years after that fateful voyage, this book will shed new light on this enduringly fascinating story, seen through the eyes of those who survived.”
