About the book:
Penelope Fletcher gave up everything to board the RMS Titanic.
Forced to travel to America for her father’s new job, Penelope left her home in Scotland, her beloved grandmother, and even her girlfriend, who promptly got engaged to someone else. Heartbroken, Penelope isn’t looking forward to the weeklong journey. Or that her parents want her to find a husband in America. To make matters worse, she also has to share a cabin with a complete stranger.
Ruby Cole, her spunky Irish roommate, is unlike anyone Penelope ever met. They become fast friends as they bond over crushing family expectations and sneaking into lush parties together. That Ruby likes women, too, comes as a surprise to Penelope, but she knows their affair can only be temporary. Because as soon as the Titanic arrives in New York, Penelope will have to marry someone of her father’s choosing.
Before long, though, they’ll both have to decide what–and who–is really worth fighting for.
The Breath Between Waves by Charlotte Anne Hamilton is a fictional historical romance that is based on real life events. The story in The Breath Between the Waves is set aboard the Titanic ship as it sailed and sank in 1912.
Penelope Fletcher grew up in Scotland and had thought she had found the love of her life in another woman in her homeland. Penelope however is now being forced by her parents to move to America traveliving via the grand Titanic ship. To make matters worse Penelope is forced to share a cabin with a stranger, Ruby Cole.
Being drawn to anything having to do with the Titanic I was immediately drawn to The Breath Between Waves by Charlotte Anne Hamilton especially with that beautiful cover. The story in The Breath Between Waves is not a bad one but I found that it also didn’t seem to be an overly original one. Having read a lot of Titanic recreations I wanted something new to pull me in and it felt a lot like it was simply a LGBT remake of the movie in a lot of parts so this one left me wanting more.
I received an advance copy from the publisher via NetGalley.
