Women & Children First

Gill Paul



She was the most magnificent ship ever built, yet on the eve of 14th April the Titanic sank in the North Atlantic, leaving the lucky ones floating in wooden rowing boats, and the rest struggling for their lives in the icy water.

The sinking of the Titanic not only steals lives but blows apart the futures of those who survive: Reg, a handsome young steward who works in the first class dining room: Annie, a gifted Irishwoman who is travelling to America with her four children: Juliette, a titled English lady who is pregnant and unmarried: American millionaire George Grayling and his wife Margaret who are trapped in a poisoned marriage; and a mystery passenger who never shows her face in public.

As each of them tries to come to terms with the aftershock of the fateful might, they must begin to rebuild their lives. But how can life ever be the same again when you've heard thousands of people dying in the water around you?

Rich with authentic historical detail, this unforgettable novel is sure to captivate fans of Downton Abbey, Rachel Hore, and Sarah Blakes The Postmistress.

Will coincide with the release of Julian Fellowes' four-part Titanic mini-series and James Camersons 3d Titanic.

Huge coverage expected for the centenary of the Titanic and major publicity for Women & Children First

Exclusive extra material includes original photographs from onboard the ship and the extraordinary facts behind the Titanic.
