Caroline Pignat
(Razorbill Canada)

Fans of historical fiction don’t always require 1,200-page tomes to satisfy their cravings for tales of times gone by. Caroline Pignat’s story of love found and lost aboard the doomed Empress of Ireland ocean liner is perfectly balanced in its language and themes to appeal to adults and teens alike. This is the kind of book that can be passed from mom to daughter without fear of boring the former or embarrassing the latter.
