Book Description: Hearts That Survive: A Novel of the Titanic

In April 1912, Lydia Beaumont is on her way to a new life with a boundless hope, against all that Craven Dowd desires for her and himself. Her friendship with Caroline Chadwick deepens as they plan Lydia's wedding on board the "grandest ship ever built." Then both women suffer tragic losses when the "unsinkable" Titanic collides with an iceberg and there are only 20 lifeboats for 2207 passengers. They struggle to keep their families and dreams together. 

Decades later, Caroline's granddaughter, working at the museum in Halifax, Nova Scotia, plans for the 50th memorial for the sinking and contacts survivors and descendants of survivors. Alan Morris feels like a failure until he discovers he is the descendant of an acclaimed novelist who lost his life when the Titanic sank. He becomes caught up in finding his identity in the past and must come to terms with her present and the meaning of true success.

Characters struggle to answer whether love is more powerful than the pain of loss and learn what it means for a heart to survive.

  4. I am a fan of all things Titanic. Many years ago, I saw the movie, A Night to Remember (made in 1958). Of course, I love the Titanic with Leonardo and Kate and the soundtrack music by James Horner. This past weekend, I went to see the 3D Titanic, which was good, but I forgot about the 3D as I got into the movie! I love going to the theater, with big screen and no one to interrupt with talking! I watched the Red Carpet London event for the 3D Titanic. Kate was there, but no Leonardo! I have also been watching the various Titanic specials on TV. So--I would love to have Hearts Survive: A Novel of the Titanic by Yvonne Lehman!!!!!

  5. Thank you everyone for entering the contest!
