Precisely one hundred years after the Titanic sank in the Atlantic, facts and memories resurface. In this heart-wrenching historical novel, Esther Hoffer's childhood is laid to rest on the ocean floor, along with the glamorous Titanic. Memories haunt her, poking their blame-laden fingers at her as she attempts to build a new life. Making the transition from Plawo, Poland, to Manhattan, New York, would be difficult for anyone, but for Esther it is nearly impossible. Courage and cowardice. Bravery and betrayal. Guilt grows on both sides of the Atlantic. Can they escape its clutches?
