I knew I wanted to write a novel about Titanic — not so much about the ship itself, but about the people who sailed on her. I wanted to find out what happened to those who survived the tragic event. I dug a little deeper and discovered an incredible story of three young girls, travelling as part of a larger group, who had survived.

One she believed took the last place in the last lifeboat and another jumped out of one lifeboat in order to return to her cabin to fetch the new hat she had bought in Ireland especially for her arrival in New York. Luckily, she was able to make a jump of fifteen feet to get onto another lifeboat as it was being lowered into the water.

Through further research, I discovered that Annie Kate, Delia and Annie were part of a group which has, in recent years, become known locally as The Addergoole Fourteen : a group of emigrants — friends and relatives — who had left their small villages in rural Ireland, travelled by cart and train to Queenstown in County Cork and boarded Titanic. Eleven of the group lost their lives in the tragedy. These three young women survived with miraculous stories to tell.

Exchange Discount Summary

I was so moved by the stories of parents waiting for days and days of news of their sons and daughters. I read about the wakes they held in their homes for the family members who would never be brought home. The event had a profound effect on the entire community and it is now remembered annually with a candlelit, bell-ringing ceremony.

The local church now boasts one of only two Titanic-themed stained glass windows in the world. The young chap in WH Smith explained they're not really a book shop, but a newsagents who carry a few of the pithy 'holiday reading' type books. Thank goodness for our local Indie bookshops and for Waterstones, I say.

I don't understand why W H Smith didn't move when they had the chance.
