    I loved this book I m not sure there s much else to say The beginning was a little slow, but it quickened up soon enough The parallel to the prodigal son was astounding And the ending cries I was not expecting that to happen to the person I thought it would happen to the other brother It was also a bit nerve wracking to read sine you know the time line of the Titanic s voyage, and I just couldn t figure out how it would all be wrapped up before the ship sank I think my favorite part of the story was the brothers I love reading books about the relationship between brothers And just how it ended was just AUGH I m not sure I ll ever get over the ending But yes, all in all it was a beautiful book

    I loved this story I grabbed it in haste because church was about to start, I d heard the author was local, and the cover was pretty Not always the most trusty method of finding new favorites When I read the synopsis, I was sure I d made a mistake It s a Titanic story and I ve never liked Titanic stories because people die.But this story was fabulous It felt like I was right there from the careful detail of the descriptions And the characters were so real, it seemed like I d know them if I met them on the street July updateI tried to order this the first week I read it and was disappointed to find that I couldn t get a paperback copy Last week I found a hardcover at Half Price bookstore in Texasso I ve reread it and love it just as much as before

    Be still my heart A shipboard romance, a prodigal son, Tricia Goyer s rich historical research, and all the Titanic s lushness and impending doom By the Light of the Silvery Moon is everything a historical romance novel should be.Tricia Goyer is one of my favorite novelists, and this book delighted me Goyer s storytelling and research shine, and the characters are truly engaging Most importantly, this story truly touched and moved me I highly recommend it.

    like this review see at I have to say I was looking forward to this arc so much I read it in November before I realised I couldn t publish my review until February I love anything set around the time of the Titanic in general, I a bit of a sucker for a love story which I know may have a bad ending, I mean we all know it sinks right This novel comes with a lot of religious moments which didn t appeal to me as much, but as a person who isn t very religious it didn t go too far into the storyline so it is still suitable for most readers The storyline is a great battle between the two brothers Quentin and Damian and their affections for Amelia, the main protagonist It discusses the importance of deciding a suitable partner for yourself yet Amelia keeps wondering what God has in store for her which I thought was quite contradictory at times Amelia is always looking to help anyone she can and this is why Quentin is the brother she is immediately drawn to At the beginning we are unaware that the two are brothers and in fact long lost, Quentin left home and never kept in touch due to an horrific accident in the past I enjoyed the fact that the book did skip briefly to a different time period where Quentin and Damian were young, you really get a sense of why Quentin has struggled through life and why Damian feels the need to protect his father You get lost in a lovely storyline which makes your heart glow In terms of history and the Titanic I think Goyer has done an amazing amount of research and it really pays of in the storyline I really found that once I got into this book I really couldn t put it down and read it in two days In the year of its 100th anniversary Tricia Goyer has done it proud as her setting for this truely heart wrenching story.

    I was quite disappointed by this book, since Tricia Goyer books are often some of my favorites and her romance is often realistic than others.I keep a journal of negatives and positives for most of the books I read, and here are some for this book.Negatives Everyone seems to be instantly drawn to or attracted by the main lady character She is pretty, yes, and nice, but this is not always the way it happens and perhaps would give the readers the same imagination of young men falling for them Main character Amelia lies about some things.Too much emphasis on romantic reactions, such as goosebumps Giving a playful pout and other flirtatious behavior.Amelia thinks of getting advice from a Catholic priest Positives Wealth and luxury not the goal, people shown as happy in poorer classes Amelia tries to help the poor and needy, and shares the gospel with Quentin Waits on God and prays Quite a few historical people and details are mentioned.So, I liked some of it But, Mrs Goyer, my talented acquaintance, I would encourage you to remember not just realism, but also of godly, restrained character to be shown by your heroines Not perfection, but there could be growth in the characters.

    This was my first time reading anything of Tricia Goyer, and I must admit that I was rather disappointed The story started out rather well and had me intrigued However, by the time I was in the 3rd chapter, my high hopes for it were beginning to sink The time period is set during the Titanic as Amelia and her aunt prepare to dock the unsinkable ship on her maiden voyage to America Throw in a mysterious stranger who gains the compassion of Amelia, a rich man who seems to have lost than he can bear, and a son who cares about what society thinks of him than he will admit I had several times throughout the book that I wanted to quit reading However, I decided that I would continue reading to give it a fair chance Goyer s writing style was easy to read and fairly enjoyable, but when it came to conversations and relationships, she really tanked Her character development was also hard to follow The one character that was half good was Amelia, although even she seemed to have a watery development that was hard to understand By the Light of the Silvery Moon was a romance, and I knew that when I picked it up, but I hoped that perhaps it would still be an enjoyable read I dislike romance that isn t realistic Propriety and modesty were all but lost in this book The gentlemen were too forward for the time period although I am not saying that ungentlemanly men didn t exist, the men in this book were gentlemen and should have conducted themselves as such , and young Amelia didn t seem to mind a bit Amelia is setting out for America to meet a gentleman whom she has been in correspondence with He paid for her ticket as he felt that he would like to get to know her better to possibly see if they had any future together Thus sets the basic story line However, Amelia seems all too anxious to leave this faithful fellow for the next handsome fella that comes along Although she seems to have high standards and good faith in the Lord, she also seems to let those slide throughout the book Goyer added a few plot twists that really didn t make sense in the book such as Amelia trying to find out as much as she can about her lost mother Although that might have added some interest to the story, it wasn t done well enough to actually pull through We all know how the Titanic met its end Having researched lots on the Titanic, I was slightly disappointed with the historical details in the book However, I didn t mind as much as it wasn t a very large part of the story What did surprise and disappoint me, though, was the ending of the book It felt very rushed and halted, jerking the reader around in a way that was rather dizzying All in all, I wasn t very satisfied with the book I am still deciding as to whether or not I want to give Goyer another chance and read another of her stories.

    When the Titanic set sail 100 years ago no one knew that the grand ship s legacy would turn tragic The story has been repeated so often over the years that most of us know the facts by heart By the Light of the Silvery Moon by Tricia Goyer is the second fictionalized account of the Titanic that I have read in the last month I loved Goyer s descriptions of the ship from the finest rooms of first class to the staff quarters Amelia s association with characters of three different stations the first class Damian Walpole, the second class Quentin Walpole, and a stewardess take her to all levels of the ship during her four day voyage Most of the plot is set in the first and second classes, and I could picture the grandeur and stateliness of what was an unparalleled vessel The cameo appearances of real life passengers, John Jacob Astor and Margaret Brown added an extra layer of authenticity to the story.The Titanic sinks near the end of the novel and while I enjoyed the plot, characters, and historical details, there was the element of predictability I initially expected the story to focus partially on the Titanic voyage and partially on life after the tragedy I felt a sense of foreboding knowing the inevitable event that was going to occur and wondering what the outcome would be for the characters that were introduced The back stories of Amelia and Quentin provided depth and interest to the story Amelia finds herself in somewhat of a love triangle between her potential suitor in America, Quentin, and his brother Damian The question that lingers is who will capture her heart and who will survive the ship s sinking The answer is bittersweet with heartwarming tones of love and sacrifice Tricia Goyer pays homage to the Titanic in By the Light of the Silvery Moon and preserves a bit of its history There are so many real stories of Titanic passengers that we will never know, and reading a well written and researched fictionalized account gives us insight into an event that should not be forgotten I received a complimentary e copy of this book from NetGalley, courtesy of Barbour Publishing I was not required to write a positive review The opinions expressed above are my own I am disclosing this in accordance with the Federal Trade Commission s 16 CFR, Part 255 Guides Concerning the Use of Endorsements and Testimonials in Advertising.

    Amelia is a likeable character and is easy to cheer for when she and her aunt board the Titanic in search of a fresh start in America it s easy to hope things turn out well for them The story immediately starts out interesting when Amelia s soft heart causes her to spontaneously give a spare ticket for passage on the Titanic to a homeless man, Quentin He is estranged from his brother and millionaire father, who coincidentally are also on board the Titanic This situation of course causes a bit of drama, but it keeps things interesting I enjoyed watching Amelia and Quentin get to know one another over the course of their voyage.With almost the entire book taking place on board the Titanic the number of places and settings the characters can visit is rather limited, however it was handled very well Amelia is a second class passenger, yet we also get some looks into first class and a couple glimpses into third class as well The general feeling of awe over the design of the ship is continually felt, from first class down to third, and even in the actions and comments of the stewards and maids.Unfortunately, the looming tragedy didn t allow the story to be completely enjoyable for me It s definitely well written and well researched, but the entire time I had the question when is it going to happen lingering in the back of my mind I did enjoy the stories of Amelia and her acquaintances, but at the same time I felt sad knowing the fate that awaited them They all felt completely safe on the unsinkable Titanic crew members and passengers alike often praised the opulence and design of the ship I imagine these types of comments actually were very common yet I couldn t help but feel sad every time someone expressed their trust in the doomed vessel.From what I know of the Titanic, everything seemed very realistic and I actually learned some things, too It s hard to imagine living through such an event, but with the aid of fictional characters this book does give a glimpse of what it must have been like It s hard to use words conveying enjoyment of a book that covers such an event, but if you have any interest in Titanic, I definitely would recommend this book It s not particularly graphic, but I think it gives a good picture of the events as seen through the eyes of Amelia and her friends.Thanks to the publisher Barbour Books for providing me with an e galley via NetGalley for review.
