By the Light of the Silvery Moon – Book Review

Just in time for the 100th Anniversary of the sinking of the Titanic, Tricia Goyer has a new book out, By The Light of the Silvery Moon.


About By The Light of The Silvery Moon:

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?

My Review:
I loved By the Light of the Silvery Moon! Amelia, the main character in this book, cares more about others than she does herself. She is always looking for ways to help others. That is how she ends up giving a ticket for the Titanic to Quentin. Quentin had reached a low point in his life, and Amelia helped him. She did more than help him, she gave him hope and reunited him with his family.
By the Light of the Silvery Moon isn’t just a love story, although it is a great love story. It’s a story of restoration and second chances. Of giving our lives to God and letting Him determine the outcome. Of putting others before ourselves.
I found By the Light of the Silvery Moon to be true to the history of the Titanic. I liked this book much, much better than the blockbuster movie about the Titanic. The authors excellent descriptions had me walking around the ship in my minds eye. I think you’ll love By the Light of the Silvery Moon as much as I did.
