One bright April day in 1912, six little girls sailed with their families on the “grandest ship ever” – the Titanic – and into the history books. But did one of them actually survive that tragic night?
When young widow Arlisle Shepherd receives an invitation to attend the 100 year anniversary memorial cruise for the descendants of passengers of the ill-fated Titanic, she is more than baffled. She is both suspicious and fearful. Suspicious because she believes she has no Titanic ancestor; fearful because of the threatening phone calls she’s been receiving since the unsolved murder of her detective husband a year earlier.
As Arlie’s search for her mysterious ancestor takes her deep into her grandmother’s secretive past, to elderly chatty neighbors who suddenly refuse to talk, to lonely cemeteries and to increasing threats and suspicious deaths, it also pushes her toward the possibility of once more opening her heart. But – has one of those closest to her betrayed her?
And ultimately – is solving the mystery of her Titanic ancestor worth her life?
