This book is an updated version of Denney's; "Shadow of the Titanic", it has an added chapter on Esther Hart's (Eva's mother) account of the voyage, found in personal papers after the death of Eva Hart. This book has some interesting information not known when the original title "Shadow of the Titanic" was written. It also has more illustrations/photos than "Shadow of the Titanic".
I found it most interesting that after Eva's funeral service, refreshments including FROGS were offered to the people attending the service; you will have to read the book yourself to find out the significance of the frogs!
I highly recommend this easy to read book which describes fluently an enthralling chapter of history, it would make a worthy addition to any Titanic historian's personal library.
There a few interesting pictures I've never seen before but I would wait until this book is in the dollar bin before I'd buy it. You have to put it down and come back to it every few days. I came away with a different impression of Eva Hart - that of a self-impressed snob.
