"by the light of the silvery moon" by tricia goyer

About the book: Passage on the Titanic offers Amelia Gladstone a chance for a new life in America. Mr. Chapman, a man she has been corresponding with, paid for her ticket, and Amelia hopes that when they finally meet, he will be everything she has been looking for in a man.

Amelia didn't count on meeting Quentin Walpole, though. Quentin, a man who fell from grace to live on the streets, is stunned when Amelia offers him a ticket. He finds himself drawn to her, yet he knows he is unworthy of her love.

When Amelia discovers Quentin's father and brother also sail the Titanic, she wonders if perhaps God led her to Quentin in order to reunite him with his family. Things become complicated, however, when both brothers pursue her. Should she give her heart to one of them, or should she begin a relationship with Mr. Chapman?

My take:
 By the Light of the Silvery Moon is basically the parable of the prodigal son, set on the Titanic. And that's a good thing! In the past, I have always sympathized with the older brother—because, let's face it, I do have "older brother" tendencies—but when viewed through Tricia Goyer's eyes, I could understand the younger brother much better.

I loved this story. Once I picked up the book, I could barely put it down. The characters jumped off the pages, and the Titanic itself came to life in my mind's eye. So far this year, I've read a lot of books that I've greatly enjoyed, but this has to be one of my favorites. 5 out of 5 stars!
