Any Titanic survivor's story would be interesting, but this book unfortunately does a very poor job of telling one. Her story is told in literally 3 pages and the rest of the first half of the book talks of the author's childhood and relationships with close relatives. He then mentions several times that his grandmother would tell the story of her passage on the Titanic - but he never elaborates on exactly what she would say.

The last half of the book is made up of reprinted photos from other books, a very vague passenger list and reprinted news articles about the family.

The reprinting of the accounts from the official inquiries was very interesting. Anna Thomas (Mrs Darwin Touma) apparently did not testify in these, but people from her lifeboat did, so some of the blanks are filled in there - although they sometimes contradict other stories.

Overall this book was a disappointment and supplemental materials are vital for preserving this story. ( )
