Blog Tour: By The Light Of the Silvery Moon (Review)

In her newest novel, "By The Light Of The Silvery Moon," Tricia Goyer has not only captured the atmosphere and excitement of life on the Titanic, but also weaves in a "historical," yet classic retelling of the prodigal son.

In the novel, Goyer tells the story of Ameila Gladstone - a young woman who is journeying across the ocean in hopes that a pen pal she is introduced through her sister will turn into her true love.

When her cousin lands in jail the night before the voyage, Amelia gives his ticket to someone who seems to be down, out and without much hope.

Little does she know that Quentin Walpole is truly living the prodigal son's life. Broken and without much hope, Quentin thinks he's running away from England. Instead, he finds that he is really "running" towards his brother and father, who are passengers on the Titanic.

I'll be honest, I wasn't sure if I'd enjoy reading a book about the Titanic - I mean, we know the ending, the ship sinks.

But through strong dialogue, vivid images of life aboard this amazing structure, and a great story line, Goyer has crafted a book I truly enjoyed reading.

On the scale of one to five, I give this book a solid four. It's a fun, light read, but it's also historical accurate. The story has a depth that I enjoyed. I think if you'll enjoy it if.... you are a history buff, enjoy romance novels, or if you like books with a Biblical hook. Frankly, I think you'll enjoy it if you are just looking for a book to read on a quiet afternoon.

About The Book
(From The Publisher)
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.

Quentin Walpole is stunned when a sweet lady secures his passage to America--and even more surprised to find his wealthy father and older brother on board the ship. Suddenly Amelia finds herself caught between the attentions of two men, but who should she entrust her heart to? As the fateful night arrives, will Amelia lose everything to the icy waters?
