The only downside is that it was a little long-winded and could have been condensed somewhat. As a result the story moves on too slowly at times. Emmerdale's Eric Pollard reveals he is diagnosed with Parkinson's disease in heartbreaking scenes as he bravely confides in Mandy Dingle

The historical research that Celia and Fidelis carried out to enable this story to be written is fascinating and the section about this work at the end of the novel is definitely worth reading.

British Soap Awards are CANCELLED: ITV make surprise announcement ceremony will not take place next year after Phillip Schofield stepped down Inside Chloe Madeley's post split glow-up: Star swaps her gymwear for racy boots after James Haskell accused her of 'never dressing sexily for him' Imrie’s portrayal of Mary Hays, Margaret’s mother, perfectly captures the upper class’s snobbish attitude toward immigrants, specifically those from Eastern Europe. When the boys are mistaken as Polish, Margaret herself recalls that Poles in New York are regarded as “the lowest of the low.” Mary Hays perpetuates these classist attitudes when she and Margaret embark on a shopping adventure in pursuit of new clothes for the boys: “We can’t have them wandering around here looking like two little Ellis Island immigrants straight from the potato fields of Romania.” Fast forward 110 years into the 21st century, and readers see these same attitudes still persisting not only in many European countries where specifically Ukrainians are stigmatized, but also in the United States in regards to other races and ethnicities.


We can gather from the title that Lolo and Monmon were onboard the RMS Titanic and was orphaned by the sinking of the majestic ship. I don't want to give away too many details about the time spent onboard the RMS Titanic, but what I can say is this is where Margaret Bechstein crosses the paths of Lolo and Monmon. Through her selfless act, the toddlers were given a second chance. Told from Marcella, Michael and Margaret's POV, the reader is swept up in the toxic marriage of Michael and Marcella, caught up in the exhilarating boarding of the Titanic and left desolate after the vivid descriptions of the ship descending into the darkness leaving two small boys to the fate of strangers. In this case, a stranger who only had their best interests at heart.

I am quite surprised that my interest was held throughout as the story does not appear to contain enough substance to fill a fairly lengthy book. It is to the author’s credit that she has managed to produce just that. The storyline itself was good but not great, and the characters themselves were well developed, presumably in line with the information that was available about them from 1912 when their story hit the headlines. Marvel execs 'discussed swapping Jonathan Majors' Kang character for a Dr. Doom storyline during crisis talks' after the actor was arrested for domestic assault Nice, France, 1911: After three years of marriage, young seamstress Marcela Caretto has finally had enough. Her husband, Michael, an ambitious tailor, has become cruel and controlling and she determines to get a divorce.

Jade Thirlwall is unrecognisable as she transforms into Mr Bean while boyfriendJordan Stephens wears a Teddy suit forHalloween bash One could only imagine the emotions their mother must have felt when she saw her sons, particularly as their father had covertly boarded the Titanic with the boys so the three of them could start a new life in America - without Marcelle. Britney Spears says she is 'grateful' to fans and readers after her memoir The Woman in Me sells more than a million copies in first week The moment I heard this book had a connection with the Titanic, I was easily convinced to read it. For years I have found the story of the Titanic fascinating, so it's obvious that my favourite part was onboard the ship. I found Margaret's story a bit slow, but I think it was because of my level of excitement about the part onboard the ship. The ship itself has a small part in the story, the main focus is on the story leading up to the boys being on the ship and their life after the sinking. I enjoyed the historical research by Fidelis Morgan and found it really interesting. If you have a love for the Titanic (like me) or you enjoy Historical Fiction, then this book needs to be on your TBR.
