"For any to live, some must die." Rogan gives readers much more than a timely novel about the 39 survivors on a lifeboat during the anniversary year of the Titanic. She deftly combines elements of struggle in society for class, power and redemption from God and covers it with the thin veil of innocence and demure nature, that being the fragile mess that is 22-year-old newly married and widowed Grace. With elements readers will recognize from Lord of the Flies, Life of Pi, and Moby Dick, Rogan asks the question of the surviving members of the once overcrowded lifeboat, "Can you be alive and still innocent?"
