Review of "Promise Me This" by Cathy Gohlke
This is the second book I've read recently related to the sinking of the Titanic - and I loved this perspective.
Siblings Annie and Owen Allen are orphaned in England and their wealthy (and awful) Aunt Eleanor is calling all the shots. When Owen decides to sail to America on the Titanic to make a better life for he and his sister, he has no idea what impact that decision will have on all of their lives.
Michael Dunnagan is another orphan who has known no kindness since his parents died and his beloved younger sister was stolen away. He and Owen strike up an unlikely friendship, and the intense circumstances surrounding the Titanic will change all of their lives forever.
I really enjoyed not only the story, but the obvious research the author did and how she went one step further into history, writing about WWI.
I highly recommend this book and I will definitely be seeking out the past and future books of Cathy Gohlke!
