The Girl Who Came Home

51Vc0H+w5cL._SY346_With spring break on the horizon, I was really ready for a good juicy story. The Girl Who Came Home by Hazel Gaynor kept coming up because of other books I have read and enjoyed. The book is told in varying points of view – Maggie, the “main character” leaves Ireland to emigrate to America on the Titanic, Harry works on the ship, and Grace, Maggie’s great grand-daughter learns Maggie’s story at a low point in her young life. There are some other minor characters whose point of view we learn and some of the story is “told” by Maggie’s diary entries. It’s fast-paced and page-turning, just what I was looking for.
