Staff Reviews

The bonds of sisterhood run deep in this tale of fate, woven together with history and fiction. Five sisters grow up in a small town of women called Spirit Vale where mediums live and thrive without persecution. Eager to explore the world, the sisters embark on different journeys leading each to a life changing voyage aboard the Titanic.



The destinies of five sisters all converge on board the Titanic.

Daughters of a famed clairvoyant, the five Taylor sisters have moved to turn-of-the-twentieth-century Spirit Vale, where their mother makes a living talking to the dead. The future, however, is something even she cannot see clearly.
The sisters are not meant to stay in Spirit Vale for long. All seem poised to move in different directions--science, society, fame, even the spirit world--but all of their destinies converge on board the Titanic. A transatlantic voyage that promises great wonders soon turns into a fight for survival that not everyone will win...or can they?
