Queen of the Waves - Janice Thompson

Wednesday, October 17, 2012

About the book: When pampered Jacqueline Abington secretly elopes with the family gardener, she asks another woman to take her place on the much anticipated maiden voyage of the Titanic. Tessa Bowen hails from a poor corner of London but has been granted the opportunity of a lifetime—a ticket to sail to America aboard a famed vessel. But there’s a catch: she must assume Jacqueline’s identity. For the first time in her life, Tessa stays in luxurious quarters, dresses in elegant gowns, and dines with prestigious people. Then a wealthy American man takes an interest in her, and Tessa struggles to keep up the ruse as she begins falling for him. When tragedy strikes, the game is up, and two women’s lives are forever changed. Link to buy the book: http://ow.ly/e0YHw

My Thoughts: The title of this book should be scheming aboard the Titanic! GRIN! I loved the pig named Countess, I was rolling with laughter reading in the opening chapter, Tess wrestling with the huge pig. Jacgueline is being "forced" to marry a man who will help her father's business, she is not interested to say the least. Her mother isn't happy about it at all. Together they come up with a scheme . . . Jacqueline will board the Titanic and go and live with her Grandmother in New York. For Jacquie this is the perfect answer, although her mother has no idea what she has up her decadent sleeve. Jacquie is in love with the gardener, Peter, and has no intentions of going to New York. Peter's younger sister, Tess has suffered at the hands of their father and he is worried about her, so when Peter comes up with the idea of his sister taking Jacquie's place, the plan is born. Jacquie teaches Tess the finer arts of being a lady, and gives her the clothes that would've been in her trousseau. Tess doesn't believe she can pull any of it off. Aboard the Titanic you feel as if you are one of the passengers. The ship comes alive through Janice's pen. You can hear the music, smell the food, feel the air on the deck. When tragedy strikes, you sense every bit of it like it's 1912 all over again. I absolutely adored this book!
