Rating: ⭐️⭐️⭐️ That’s a lot of freaking boats! And even though some of them are only briefly mentioned it still felt repetitive and this topic of the book was bogged down for me. I wish the focus was more on just the women. I quite liked their stories; especially Violet Jessop’s. I did also enjoy the historical parts and while I like glitz and glam; some of the passengers couldn’t help but feel like name dropping. For fans of non-fiction, the book Come Fly With Me (Pan Am), and Titanic fans too. This book would be great for a high school history teacher as a fun way to introduce history lessons.


Thank you to the publisher St. Martin’s Press @stmartinspress for sending me a review copy via @netgalley.
