Interesting story, simply written without a lot of the emotions that would have been going on inside the main character. But the writing style suited the setting, early 1900's London. Louisa is from a working class family, a hard, no-nonsense life where kids grow up into adult responsibilites quickly. Louisa becomes a nursemaid to a wealthy family, subordinate to the Nanny, who is overly strict and despotic. But Louisa puts up with her to keep her job. Louisa has to take the nanny's place on the family's voyage on the Titanic, and her maturity and strength, and fear of the water, are tested. I would have liked more emotional characters, more detail to the story, but it was good.
