  • This book suffers from a short attention span It is supposed to be the story of Maggie, a young Irish woman in 1912, about to travel on the ill fated Titanic simultaneously, it incorporates the story of Grace, her granddaughter in 1982 As far as I can tell, there is not much point to incorporating Grace into the story Grace s father dies and she is having trouble moving on, Maggie s story helps her get off her ass, to be a little crass, but I really don t see the point of having Grace in the Thi [...]


  • I really enjoyed this book Anyone who is a history buff and likes Titanic will enjoy reading this book The way it was written, with a few timelines and points of view was brilliant and refreshing It really brings home the story of this tragic ship, passengers, crew members and families unlike anything I ve read It s a very good tribute to all those lost on that horrific night, 100 years ago The world has never forgotten.


  • The Girl Who Came Home is loosely based on the story of the Addergoole 1414 poor Irish from a single village in County Mayo who boarded the Titanic in 1912 to head to a new life in America They were filled with dreams, hopes and expectations Sadly, only 3 would survive the sinking of the gigantic ship in the cold, dark Atlantic Ocean The names of the 14 passengers, their life stories, the name of the Irish village and some other facts are changed in the Girl Who Came Homebut the story The Girl W [...]


  • What can I say about this book It s not that I disliked it I just felt that there was nothing particularly new or interesting here I saw the big reveal from a mile away This is not a book I would have chosen on my own, but it was the selection for one of my book clubs I prefer books that either make me think or feel something If I m choosing something lighter, I tend to choose either humor or suspense thriller This is women s fiction through and through Just not my thing.2.5 stars What can I say [...]


  • Unfortunately, sadly this review does begin with unfortunately, with the centennial of the sinking of the Titanic, there are a boatload pun intended of books centering around that event and, sadly, this one brings nothing new to the story.I think if you ve seen the movie Titanic, you are already familiar with the general story, even so much as what it was like in steerage as compared to first class I m sad to say this doesn t really add anything.This is a fictionalized event of fou [...]


  • As another anniversary of the Titanic disaster approaches, I listened to this story of Maggie Murphy, a survivor who traveled with 13 others from Ballysheen, Ireland Her adventures before, during, and after the fateful trip are mingled with a 1980 s time frame in Illinois where her great granddaughter, Grace, is writing Maggie s story for the Chicago Tribune I enjoyed both time frames, but the narrator with an Irish brogue for Maggie s parts was a real delight while Grace s was a little too ma A [...]


  • I very much enjoyed this story line and loved that it was based on true facts, not just from the Titanic sinking, but the characters being based on real life characters as well That being said, I could have, would have, enjoyed this novel much had I not been frequently distracted by the writing style There was a bit of redundancy, especially at the beginning and around the 3 4 mark I prefer that the points be told efficiently the first time as apposed to having to retell the same point i I very [...]
