April 15, 1912
Soon, Titanic's voyage will come to a deadly end with the sinking of the unsinkable.
This is the story of the final 48 hours of the RMS Titanic, its first and last voyage. The story is told in a compelling countdown that ends mere hours after the ship's sinking.
This book describes the last days, actions, and thoughts of architect Thomas Andrews and passenger Margaret Brown, known as the Unsinkable Molly Brown, as they interact with other passengers and crew members during these last 48 hours.
While Miss Brown enjoys her cruise and her interactions with everyone onboard, Mr. Andrews is at first proud and then haunted by this stately ship. What starts out as a happy and joyous occasion soon turns to dread and despair at the news that the Titanic has hit an iceberg.
Miss Brown and Mr. Andrews are on the same yet very different mission of saving passengers while forgoing themselves and their own personal demons and dangers. While chaos and panic ensue, lives will soon be saved and also lost as the Titanic breathes her last breath and gives Molly Brown and Thomas Andrews very different endings.
What were Captain Smith's and Ismay's thoughts and actions during this horrific time? How could such a proud start turn into absolute horror? What are the consequences of the decision to forgo more lifeboats?
How could an exciting voyage with world elite onboard turn into a horrific voyage of death?

Date with fate
Molly Brown's character and moral values is a great example to follow.
Bennett made Mr. Andrew's character come alive.
I was sadden that class distinction was so prevalent.

Excellent Retelling of the Final Hours on Titanic
I was provided this audiobook at no charge by the author, publisher and/or narrator in exchange for an unbiased review via Audiobook Boom. If you like or love stories based on historic events, this audiobook is for you. J. Scott Bennett does an excellent job bringing the historic final hours to life. It reminded me of what you might see on a TV special such as "Unsolved Mysteries" or "In Search of". This story maybe fictional based on historic facts, it's believable and very entertaining. This audiobook is just under 3 hours and is perfect for a shorter listen. I found this to be an interesting and entertaining listen and recommend it if you enjoy stories based on actual events in history.
