The Girl Who Came Home is inspired by true events... I just can't seem to get away from historical fiction novels --- there something absolutely gripping and entertaining about them -- that's if they are written right and this one was (sort of).
The Titanic sunk over 100 years ago yet the tragedy that struck on April 15, 1912 still remains a much talk about and speculated event. It continues to make headline news and books surrounding the event continue to pop up.
The Girl Who Came Home is the story of fourteen individuals who a left tiny village in west Ireland to travel to American aboard the Titanic. They are all steerage passengers and the main focus is on 17 year old Maggie Murphy. Maggie survives and speaks to no one about her tragedy aboard the Titanic until decades later when she opens up to her great-granddaughter.
Maggie tells, Grace about the sweetheart she left behind, what happened before during and after her time on the Titanic. Her life story is beautiful, tragic and inspiring.
There are a lot of flashbacks from present to past in order to tell the life stories of characters .
Don't expect most of this book take place aboard the "Titanic" because it doesn't, however it is an enjoyable read from a debut author.
