By the Light of the Silvery Moon by Tricia Goyer ~ Litfuse Blog Tour & Review

By the Light of the Silvery Moon

My Review: Love set against the backdrop of the Titanic.

Having read very few books by Ms.Goyer, I didn't know quite what to expect with By the Light of the Silvery Moon, so I took a chance, and boy, am I glad I did! This book is something of a Prodigal Son type story, with very strong themes running along those lines.

I loved how Ms. Goyer really captured the atmosphere and feel of the Titanic. Distinguishing those in First Class, from those in Second and Third Class, with a strong use of body language. I could feel the atmosphere changes that occurred when we went from class to class from the chill of First Class, to the warmth, hope, and a few unsavory characters in Third.

I really didn't have a favorite character in this book, every single one was so well balanced, and none of them really outshone the others, they were all amazing. And I really liked how the relationships between the many characters felt very natural, and unforced.

Overall, I would highly recommend this book. It is a well written tale set against one of the most startling events of the 20th century, filled with forgiveness and hope. And let's not forget the romance! A fantastic book that grabbed me at the very first chapter and didn't let go until I'd turned the last page down.

Final Rating: 4.8 out of 5

I received this book from the publisher, through Litfuse Publicity in return for an honest review. Thanks!

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.
