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?

My review: I have said it before and I will say it again, I have eaten up every single book of Tricia Goyer's that I have read and By the Light of the Silvery Moon is certainly no exception. Tricia has a way of writing that makes the spiritual messages that she wants the reader to take to heart not come across as too forth right or detracting from the story. I savor her writing style so much because of the entertaining stories, beautiful imagery, believable characters, and deeper meanings found within each book. I was worried at first that By the Light of the Silvery Moon was going to be a knockoff of the movie Titanic, but I was very pleased that it held more depth than that. I have had an interest in all things Titanic as long as I can remember, so I think that this book was made that much better for me, which also meant that it had the potential to let me down more. I highly recommend this book and give it 5 stars!
Tricia will be hosting an author chat (on Facebook and Live from her website) and giving away books, gift certificates and a book club prize pack! (Ten copies of the book for your small group or book club). During the live chat Tricia will have a *special guest* join her. More details coming soon!
So grab your copy of By the Light of the Silvery Moon and join Tricia on the evening of the April 10th for a fun chat, trivia contest (How much do you know about the Titanic?) and lots of giveaways.
