  • Ireland to NYC to Texas

    From the shores of Ireland, to New York City, to the oil fields of Texas, this book was on point with all the details. You could feel the sisters in Ireland, both yearning to head to America. New York City in the early 20th century was divided, the haves and the have nots. Texas was a hot, dry, rough and tumble place where fortunes were made and lost in the oil fields. The detail the author included about the Titanic and her passengers was well done and I felt the flow of the whole story made sense. How each of the sisters related to the possible loss of her sibling in the sinking of the Titanic, not knowing for sure if she was now an only child was masterful. Following each sister was easy and the book just flowed. Although the book only spanned a few years, the characters developed so much. Changes in both of the sisters were for the better. I'm not usually a fan of dual narrative stories, but this one worked very well. The ending was unexpected although happy. The Titanic Sisters is the first book I've read by Patricia Falvey and my thanks to NetGalley for an ARC. I will be looking forward to finding and reading other books by this author.

  • Enthralling Story, Beautiful Details!

    Famine and poverty grip Ireland in 1912. Many families do not have much extra. This book follows one such family in a story of love and hate, fear and courage, growth and redemption. Beautifully written, we see humanity throughout, both cruelty and tenderness. Books like this which don't gloss over hardships appeal to me. The girls' nasty mother dotes on Nora and spoils her while she leaves out Delia and actively despises her. Nora learns to look down on her sister. However, Delia cherishes the special love of her quiet father. Both girls snap up the opportunity to leave poverty and circumstances so travel by the Titanic to New York to work in different homes. Nora has drowned after the Titanic strikes an iceberg so Delia, after a bit of confusion, takes her sister's place as governess in a wealthy home. Her character grows and matures and she is smitten with her charge, a little girl. Delia follows her employer to Texas. Many, many twists ensue as you can imagine. Throughout is a lot of lying, deceit and guilt but along with life lessons come love and hope. This wonderful Historical Fiction is riveting with both likable and detestable characters. One minute was warm, the next frustrating but that's how life really is. Those who aren't searching for a book of filler and fluff will appreciate this. It's not a crushing read. The time period elements, vocabulary and descriptions are lovely. My sincere thank you to Kensington Books and NetGalley for providing me with an ARC of this delightful book. Much appreciated.
