Summerside's American Tapestries
Queen of the Waves - Janice Thompson
Of course we all know what happened to the Titanic, but how much do we really know about the individual passengers? In this book the author uses the setting of the the Titanic voyage to give us a possible story of just a few of Titanic's passengers.
The imagery woven into this story is simply beautiful. Through the eyes of the characters, we are taken back to those first breath taking views of the magestic Titanic in all her splendour. The first days onboard are delightful, love blossoms and at moments it is so enjoyable to read that you almost forget what is about to happen.
But it is a story set on the Titanic afterall, we know what happens. The intense drama unfolds and we are swept along wondering how fate will intervene in the lives of these characters we have grown to love. Will they survive the horrible disaster?

About the Book:
When pampered Jacqueline Abington secretly elopes with the family gardener, she asks another woman to take her place on the much anticipated maiden voyage of the Titanic. Tessa Bowen hails from a poor corner of London but has been granted the opportunity of a lifetime—a ticket to sail to America aboard a famed vessel.
But there’s a catch: she must assume Jacqueline’s identity. For the first time in her life, Tessa stays in luxurious quarters, dresses in elegant gowns, and dines with prestigious people. Then a wealthy American man takes an interest in her, and Tessa struggles to keep up the ruse as she begins falling for him. When tragedy strikes, the game is up, and two women’s lives are forever changed.
