This book is quite different from the mass of other books which have been published on this topic. Geller has told the story of Titanic through the experiences of a selection of the women and children who travelled onboard the doomed ship. The full horrors of the disaster are brought home through these accounts. Geller also explores their subsequent lives and how Titanic continued to affect the rest of their lives. The book is well illustrated with photographs of the people featured and colour photographs of the artefacts recovered from the wreck. I feel this account will become increasingly significant to future generations in helping them to understand the human aspect of this tragedy and the type of people who sailed on these great liners before WWI.
