From 1906 to 1914, the Empress of Ireland, one of the fastest and most elegant liners of the Edwardian era, graced the waters of the Atlantic Ocean.

Into the Mist is the story of the Empress of Ireland, of the many people who walked its decks, and how, in the early morning of May 29, 1914, it came to rest on the bottom of the St. Lawrence River.

Anne Renaud's previous books for young people include Pier 21: Stories from Near and Far, Island of Sorrow: The Story of Grosse Île, and A Bloom of Friendship: The Story of the Canadian Tulip Festival.
