THE TITANIC SISTERS by Patricia Falvey

Two very dissimilar sisters join the ill-fated Titanic voyage. They are both anxious to be going to America, for very different reasons.

Nora Sweeney, the eldest sister has been given the money for passage on the Titanic by a distant relative, seeking a governess for his young daughter. Nora has lived a pampered life, her ma dotes on her on an obsessive level. She always gets lots of beautiful clothes and doesn't have to do any work on the farm, inside or out. She is vivacious and curvy. She often joins her ma in the vicious attacks on Delia.

Delia Sweeney, is quite shy, preferring to work with her da on the farm, she would love to stay at the farm forever, helping her da, but the situation with her ma is impossible, she knows that she will die, if she has to spend much longer, being subjected to her ma and sister's taunts. She expresses the desire to go to America on the Titanic but knows there is no possible way for her to come up with the passage funds.

Da Sweeney devises a brilliant plan to get both of his daughters on board the Titanic.

The book has dual narration between the two sisters. I like the details of life aboard the Titanic, living in rural Ireland, New York City, and Texas. This is an original story, unlike any other Titanic story that I have read. The author is Irish, I like those authors.

Many thanks to Kensington Publishing for the complimentary copy of #thetitanicsisters I was under no obligation to post a review. ( )

I am a sucker for any book that has Titanic in it. Delia and Nora have just gotten the opportunity of a lifetime. A distant family member has written asking for them to come to America. Their cousin recently passed away, and the husband now needs someone to help care for their daughter. He is asking for one, but their father manages to find a way to have both of them head to the new land, on one of the most luxurious ocean liners ever built.

Delia and Nora couldn’t be more opposite of each other, and Nora has made it very clear that she is not happy that Delia is tagging along and ruining her plans. She was supposed to go in first class, now they are both down in lower class passage and Nora cannot wait until they dock in New York to get away from her sister and live a life she’s always dreamed of.

We all know what happens to the Titanic and this is just the beginning of the journey the two of them take. due to circumstance that were unknown at the time, Delia takes Nora’s place as governess and soon has a web of lies she can hardly keep straight. Meanwhile Nora is not sure who she is, or where she belongs and when her memory starts to recover she journeys to find out what happened to that position of governess she was supposed to take up.

Each sisters seems to change into the role of the other, and both are struggling to figure out where they belong in this new country while feeling homesick for a place they never thought they’d miss. Can they work to settle their difference or will one or both end up back in Ireland.

This was a very good, fast paced read. Lots of action, lots of journeying all over the US, across the ocean and back. I really enjoyed how the sisters came to find out who they really were and that the life they lived in Ireland, maybe was not as bad as they had thought. Thank you to Kensington Books for the free arc! ( )

Nora and Delia grew up together on in Ireland, but each sister was treated differently by their mother and father, causing a rift between the sisters. This rift widens when they both embark on a journey to America on board the ill-fated Titanic in 1912. Nora and Delia are separated in the rush for lifeboats, Nora suffers an injury which causes memory loss, and Delia arrives in New York City with the belief that her sister is dead. And so begins a series of good intentions, deceptions, and family drama that is more entertaining than it should be. This novel makes for a quick read and while the Titanic wasn't that big a part of the story, I appreciated the focus on third-class passengers, rather than the more famous wealthy ones. ( )

This was a reprint.

This book was not what I expected. It was not a book that did a lot of focus on the Titanic (as the title leads you to assume); it was more of a story about two sisters that have never really liked each other, lies, deceit, and double-crossing. Throw in some tepid romance, and there you have it.

Most of the secondary characters are what kept me going, and I admit I did need to finish it to see how it all worked out for everyone.

Not a horrible book, but not un-put-downable.

This book wouldn’t let me go, once I turned the first page I couldn’t put it down!
We all know what happened to the Titanic, but now we are meeting two of the passengers, and we see their life before they leave Ireland, and then what happens to them on this maiden voyage.
Sisters, Nora and Delia, one loved by their mother, and the other despised by her. Thank goodness for their Da, he was the blessing in their lives.
We switch back and forth as we are updated on their lives, and how their circumstances change, and how they end up surviving.
What a great story the author has woven out of the tragedy these young woman experience, and yet how different a path they are put on than what was originally planned!
I loved the women that befriend these survivors, strong woman who give love and friendship, especially Mrs. Shaw and Mayflower!
You don’t want to miss this one!
I received this book through Net Galley and the Publisher Kensington, and was not required to give a positive review. ( )
