RMS Titanic: Gilded Lives on a Fatal Voyage de Hugh Brewster


RMS Titanic takes us behind the panelled doors of the Titanic’s elegant private suites to present compelling, memorable portraits of her most notable passengers, including many prominent Canadians.

Canadian historian Hugh Brewster seamlessly interweaves personal narratives of the lost liner’s most fascinating people with a haunting account of the fateful maiden crossing. Employing scrupulous research, he accurately depicts the ship’s brief life and tragic end, with the very latest thinking on everything from when and how the lifeboats were loaded to the last tune played by the orchestra. Among the many Canadians onboard were Harry Markland Molson, Lady Duff-Gordon, Charles Hays and Arthur Peuchen. With them, we gather on the Titanic’s sloping deck on that cold, starlit night and observe their all-too-human reactions as the disaster unfolds. More than ever, we ask ourselves, what would we have done?
