On a Cold Dark Sea Reviews
On a Cold Dark Sea by author Elizabeth Blackwell is a historical fiction which I thoroughly enjoyed! On the night of April 15, 1912, three different women have a lifesaving encounter on lifeboat 21, which has been let down from the sinking Titanic in the cold dark Atlantic.
Mischievous Charlotte boards the newest ship of the White Star Lines, the Titanic, with her husband Reggie, and his brother Georgie. Anyone watching would think what a nice little family, but sometimes things are not as they ...more
This book was an interesting and varied take on the Titanic tragedy. It's split into many parts and three different narrators, which makes the focus on the time during and immediately after the sinking less repetitive and drawn out.

Interesting take on the Titanic tragedy.
Another novel that has a plot involving the Titanic, do I have to read it? Well, of course I do. Thanks to Goodreads and some of my friends on it I noticed this one and lucky for me I was able to find a copy of it in my local library.
This is a novel about three women who survived the Titanic, whose lives intertwined briefly while sharing a lifeboat.

And Anna was embarking on a new life to America, with a girl who was about to marry t ...more
Really enjoyable, especially if you love anything about the Titanic. At first, I thought this was a story of real passengers/survivors, but having fictional characters almost made it better. The story lines were very believable and it was interesting to read how these survivors fared after the sinking. My favorite part of the entire novel were listening to the transcripts from Senate Investigation. Two thumbs up for the audio version.
"It was very dark and very cold. We did our best in trying circumstances. We survived."
Review coming soon, but here are a few things you should know...
* Surprisingly, there is no upstairs/downstairs romance. It seems like it’s a requirement whenever there is a story set on the Titanic that an aristocratic woman/man falls in love with a third class passenger man/woman. It’s a total given. So for there to be no such plotline was sort of a surprise for me.
* No one gets painted like a French girl. ...more
I was intrigued by On a Cold Dark Sea. I liked it but at times, it was a little slow. 4 stars.
