About the Book:
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?

Review:
I was obsessed with the movie Titanic when it came out over a decade ago. And when I say obsessed, I really mean OBSESSED. I saw the movie in the theater 3 times. I made a binder of photos I printed out from the Internet of Leonardo DiCaprio. I bought posters and plastered one of my walls of my childhood bedroom with Titanic photos. I bought and listened to on repeat, Celine Dion's album, over and over again. It was one of the first times that I was really into a love story as a teenager (other than Gone with the Wind) and I was truly obsessed with it! I am trying to convince my husband that he needs to watch Titanic again in 3D with me. (I'm still working on it...)

That being said, I was eager to read By the Light of the Silvery Moon because it takes place on the Titanic. Historical Christian fiction + Titanic?! I was sold! I knew going into it that I would have very high expectations going into this book. I am happy to say that it did NOT disappoint. It grabbed me from the first few pages and I couldn't put it down. It is a wonderfully written historical fiction novel with lots of romance embedded within the Biblical story of the prodigal son.

I really don't want to say too much because it would be so easy to spoil so many little treats Goyer leaves you to discover throughout the book, but I thoroughly enjoyed the love triangle between Amelia, Quentin and his brother, Damien. There were many unexpected twists that kept me guessing all the way to the very end. Goyer's extensive research is especially evident in the cameo appearances, especially by John Astor and Margaret Brown. Goyer's words captivated and enchanted me from the first page and kept me going back for more. I very highly recommend this book to all those who are looking for very satisfying, beautifully told story about the tragic sinking of the Titanic.
