|"Margaret Brady is an orphan who lives in a convent in London. Her only family member is her brother, William, who is in Boston trying to save up enough money to pay for her passage. Margaret lucks out--sort of--when a rich American woman named Mrs. Carstairs hires Margaret as a companion to accompany her on the Titanic. The story proceeds as Margaret observes life and activity on the ship--in first class, no less--from the perspective of a poor young girl. She also strikes up a friendship with one of the ship's stewards, Robert, who reminds her of her brother, William. But then of course the ship hits the iceberg, and Margaret and Mrs. Carstairs, though separated, are among those who secure places on lifeboats and are able to survive the sinking of the ship. Margaret is able to make it to New York, where her brother William meets her and takes her to Boston. A brief section at the end describes how Margaret spends the rest of her life in Boston. The author also includes a historical section on the actual Titanic event, including pictures."
