This is a very interesting book. It's extremely well written. It's the story of the Marchioness disaster, told from a survivor's point of view.

I'm so glad that Magda Allani wrote this book. I remember the newspapers and reports on the incident at the time reported the disaster as happening to a boat full of models and socialites whereas it was a range of people and ages. Even if this were to be true, do they deserve any less sorrow for having lived fortuitous lives pre-disaster? This book gives those people both alive and dead a voice. It humanises them and sadly with so many inquests and red tape that often doesnt happen.

I did enjoy reading it, and congratulate the lady author on this her first published work. A basic map of the London part of the Thames would help clarify things. At the end of the book, one question remained for me. Apparently a Canadian Ward rescued some seven people. Did he get any recognition? Perhaps as well as an index, also an appendix for such detail.
