Surviving the 1915 Lusitania sinking was only the beginning for Rachel Williams. Two years later, at a war fundraiser, she is reunited with fellow survivors, Fred and Rudy. The best friends battle for Rachel’s affections. Torn between two marriage proposals, Rachel chooses one of the men and her decision triggers an unimaginable and unpredictable journey lasting thirty years.


The dominoes collapse around Rachel, affecting family, friends and strangers alike. Is it fate or is there a sinister force at work? Or both? Ultimately, will Rachel regret her decision when she learns how it impacted others?                                                                                                 

Set in both America and Europe, history and fiction intertwine. Events like the Russian Revolution, Prohibition, the Great Depression and the world wars influence the characters’ lives and their decisions to love, betray, forgive and reconcile.
