THE GIRL WHO CAME HOME A Novel of the Titanic

by | Read by Connor Kelly-Eiding, Alana Kerr

Fiction • 9.75 hrs. • Unabridged • © 2014

Blending fact and fiction, the story of 17-year-old Maggie Murphy, one of the few steerage passengers on the Titanic to survive, is beautifully narrated by Connor Kelly-Eiding and Alana Kerr. Maggie is reluctant to leave her home, but she must travel with her aunt and a group of Irish emigrés going to America for a better life. As Maggie experiences the horror and tragedy of the doomed ship, she swears never to reveal what happened that night. The two gifted narrators take listeners from Maggie’s voyage in 1912 to the year 1982, when she finally reveals her “important” story to her great-granddaughter, Grace. Maggie’s lovely young-girl’s voice, with its soft Irish lilt, is a flawless fit, while Grace’s more modern inflections and aggressive American persona are pitch-perfect.
