This book starts so very excitedly with our protagonist Delia or Dee as her friends call her is excited to go on a company picnic but how they are meant to get there is the talk of the town The SS Eastland Her mother has a premonition and forbids her to go along ruining her plans to get closer to her crush She considers what her mother says and runs off anyways to be with her friends If something bad was going to happen she wanted to be there to help them It's all good after a defiant Dee gets on board she even manages to locate her friends Mae and Mae's brother who is Dee's crush Karel The descriptive nature that Marian Cheatham captures the scenery had me right there and covering my nose I might add on the streets of Chicago 1815 The entire experience of the extravagence of the boat and the excited atmosphere was beautiful that is until things go very wrong very fast Not even away from the dock completely the tottering Eastland topples over and Dee and Karel barely escape with their lives Karel goes looking for his sister who was below in the dancehall leaving Dee standing on a now sideways surface It takes so long for him to return and despair overcomes Dee She is saved once by Lars a young engineer and Merchant Marine The story plummeted me emotionally on a roller coaster ride for the rest of the read It was so hard afterwards and no I am not going to spoil the story at all but it was tragic and beautiful and would win an Academy award if it were a movie I wasn't sure how I would like the book seeing as Historical Fiction but I really liked this book alot I think the depth of the story kept me tuned in than anything I am a sucker for an emotional readview spoilerI was so extremely sad when the ship was going down all of those innocent victims taking me back to bawling my eyes out watching Titanic But this was even gripping and tragic I think because of the lack of warning and knowing that Mae and Johnny were down in the lower deck was nearly gut wrenchingOh and when they went to the morgue I had to literally chew my lip to keep from blubbering like a baby I am not crazy about love triangles but this seemed different like she was just a somewhat fickle and naive girl I mean it was clear to me that Karel wanted to basically make Delia his wife but the handsome Lars swooped in all smitten and complicated matters You would think it'd be a no brainer for her to focus on Karel considering how much she liked him and how long too I both hated and loved Lars' character and ditto for Karel eventually They were well written and swoon worthy nonetheless hide spoiler
