About This Book
Jane and her sisters grow up in a community of spiritualists, their mother being the most prominent. Chased by their pasts and drawn toward a more hopeful future, these four sisters embark on the journey of their lives aboard the Titanic.
One is going to have her wedding during the ocean voyage. Another has become involved in a feat of scientific intrigue that has the potential to alter the course of history. All of them feel out of place. And at least one of them will soon find herself out of time.
As she did with her epic love story. Suzanne Weyn weaves fact, fiction, and fate into a novel that teen readers won't be able to put down.

How had I come to his? This morning I'd expected a quiet day. Now I was on the greatest luxury liner of all time, out in the middle of the ocean, spinning joyfully in the arms of the person I'd been longing for over the last seven months.
Everything was perfect.
