Amelia Gladstone's hopes are tied up in the Titanic--hopes for a reunion with her sister and an introduction to an admirer. But when she offers a spare ticket to a down-and-out young man, her fate is about to change.

Quentin Walpole is stunned when a sweet lady secures his passage to America--and even more surprised to find his wealthy father and older brother on board the ship. Suddenly Amelia finds herself caught between the attentions of two men, but who should she entrust her heart to? As the fateful night arrives, will Amelia lose everything to the icy waters?

I love anything that has to do with the Titanic. The story, the sinking, and anything else about it has always intrigued me. When I first read the synopsis of By the Light of the Silvery Moon, I knew this story would be nothing short of amazing. I'm so pleased to say that it did not disappoint. Honestly, it's been a while since historical fiction captured my attention like this did. For a day and a half I was taken back in time aboard the R.M.S. Titanic! I loved it!

Tricia is such a talented author. Her research and attention to detail shines through on every page of this book. I felt like I was on that ship experiencing all the excitement of first setting foot on deck. And then feeling the piercing cold and paralyzing fear the people felt on the night the ship sank. When we got to the scene where the ship hits the iceberg it was so hard to set the book down. The suspense! I wanted to know who made it and who didn't. Even though I knew the Titanic's tragic end, I still wanted to read what would happen.

By the Light of the Silvery Moon is a story about second chances and trusting God in the midst of heartache, loss, and tragedy. I loved every second I spent in this story. Suspense, drama, and history fill the pages of this fantastic book. And the romance! *sigh* So, so sweet.. I could almost hear the song "My Heart Will Go On" in the background. I loved the characters, they came off as real people. I felt so emotionally involved with them so it was hard to say goodbye to some. Again, I loved this story. It's one I highly recommend!
