By The Light Of The Silvery Moon by Tricia Goyer




Amelia Gladstone's hopes are tied up in the Titanic--hopes for a reunion with her sister and an introduction to an admirer. But when she offers a spare ticket to a down-and-out young man, her fate is about to change. Quentin Walpole us stunned when a sweet lady secures his passage to America--and even more surprised to find his wealthy father and older brother on board the ship. Suddenly Amelia finds herself caught between the attentions of two men, but who should she entrust her heart to? As the fateful night arrives, will Amelia lose everything to the icy waters?

I absolutely loved this historical fiction set in the Titanic.
Apart from beautiful historical detail, this book had a really good plot, which kept it going and kept my interest alive all the way. 

I liked the heroine a lot, with her inner struggles and her efforts to find God's plan for her life. That's what all the good books are about, in my opinion. Anyway, the reader follows her journey, both physical and spiritual, until the great tragedy of the Titanic.
I won't spoil the surprises that take place as soon as the ship goes down, but the atmosphere on board the ship was just delicious.

The romance was subtle and realistic without being too obvious. 

But most of all, what I loved about this book was how it came through that God is in control of what happens to us, and He can take our lives and take them in the direction He wants them to go in the most miraculous ways, if we trust Him.
Even on board a ship marked for disaster.

Rating: 5/5

I read this book via the NetGalley.
