Their hearts were struck long before the ship hit the iceberg. Megan Mahoney, the apprentice ticket agent who stumbles across an unused ticket and takes a leap of faith to create a chance for a new life and love in America. Emily and Ethan Westbrooke, American shipping magnates, twins who were sent away from their home and family in order to hide the shame of their sexual desires. Frances Cheswick, the spoiled darling of the Cheswick family. She's too young for love, but she knows what she wants. And, Frances always gets what she wants. Alice Pearce, goddaughter to Frances's mother. Her ticket for a second-class berth makes her question her place in the family and in society at large, but what she finds there makes a permanent place in her heart. It was the adventure of a lifetime on the maiden voyage of the luxurious Titanic. Their hearts, like the ship, were on a collision course with destiny.

Delightful take on Titanic story but this time including the women who were left out of the story: the lesbians. And being one in that 1912 era could not have been easy; nonetheless, Chacon imbues her story and characters with charming freshness and unexpected complexities in what is most definitely very much a love story—and a special one, at that!
