Spellbinding author Suzanne Weyn tells the story of four sisters on an ill-fated voyage...

Chased by their pasts and drawn toward a more hopeful future, four sisters are about to embark on the journey of their lives... aboard the Titanic. One is going to have her wedding during the ocean voyage. Another has become involved in a feat of scientific intrigue that has the potential to alter the course of history. All of them feel out of place. And at least one of them will soon find herself out of time.

As she did with her epic love story Reincarnation, Suzanne Weyn weaves fact, fiction, and fate into a novel that teen readers won't be able to put down.

Suzanne Weyn is the author of Reincarnation, The Bar Code Tattoo, The Bar Code Rebellion, and the YA romances Water Song and The Night Dance. She lives in New York.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Yes it really was "Abosolutely great!* (spoilers..!) I just finished this book.... I was reading it for ahh let's say about 7 hours or so. I am a great Titanic fan myself so I decided to get this.. :)) and anyway I loved it!! This text had many surprises (SPOILER)... For example everyone thought Thad and Mimi were dead.. but BAM.. they survived :b I do recommend this text to any ages and said in another review and yes there is romance so if your not a romantic person this might not be for you. But in general it's really great and you should read it!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Fantastic Mix of Fact and Fiction Suzanne Weyn creates a suspenseful and romantic story that shows the horror of the Titanic sinking through the fictional characters ( Maude, Jane, Mimi, Amelie, Emma, Blythe and Thad), as well as very real characters such as John Jacob Astor, Nikola Tesla, Molly Brown, and several others. I very much enjoyed how the author used the theme of spiritualism to foreshadow the events that would happen aboard the Titanic! Truly a fantastic book for any age!

Read from the Book

From Distant Waves: A Novel of the Titanic,/b>He took hold of my hand and together we hurried to a spot near the band where other couples held one another close and did a bouncy sort of strut in unison. "I have to put my arm around your waist; is that okay?" he checked.I hoped to high heaven that I wasn't blushing as I nodded that it was fine-much better than fine. He held me so close that we were cheek to cheek, ankle to ankle. The dance was fast which didn't leave time to feel too awkward and before I knew it I was smiling so hard that my face ached a little. At one point Thad began turning us in dizzying spins without ever letting go of his hold of me.How had I come to this? This morning I'd expected a quiet day. Now I was on the greatest luxury liner of all time, out in themiddle of the ocean, spinning joyfully in the arms of the person I'd been longing for over the last seven months.Everything was perfect.
