A voyage across the ocean becomes the odyssey of a lifetime for a young Irish woman. . . .

Ireland, 1912 . . .

Fourteen members of a small village set sail on RMS Titanic, hoping to find a better life in America. For seventeen-year-old Maggie Murphy, the journey is bittersweet. Though her future lies in an unknown new place, her heart remains in Ireland with SĂ©amus, the sweetheart she left behind. When disaster strikes, Maggie is one of the few passengers in steerage to survive. Waking up alone in a New York hospital, she vows never to speak of the terror and panic of that fateful night again.

Chicago, 1982 . . .

Adrift after the death of her father, Grace Butler struggles to decide what comes next. When her great-grandmother Maggie shares the painful secret about Titanic that she's harbored for almost a lifetime, the revelation gives Grace new direction—and leads both her and Maggie to unexpected reunions with those they thought lost long ago.

Inspired by true events, The Girl Who Came Home poignantly blends fact and fiction to explore the Titanic tragedy's impact and its lasting repercussions on survivors and their descendants.

Re: The Girl Who Came Home

What a wonderful, yet heartwrenching story to be kept alive by someone whom I'm sure has really put their heart into this book!! It doesn't contain the fluff of Hollywood. It contains the events, as they happened, and these are the types of books that I truly enjoy reading. They're a part of History, and I can't thank the Author enough for writing it!! I will definately put this book on my TBR list, and I'm sure this is one book I will be sharing with others. I share in your loss, and can't thank you enough for writing it!!

My heart melted. This is a must read for me and I can hardly wait. Stories from the heart are always the best,
but bittersweet sharing. Thank you Hazel.
