That was a surprise at the end. I wonder how many stories like that are floating around.

Wonderful first paragraph.

The dialogue was smooth and authentic.

I really like the extra touches. "Blue Danube Waltz" "tintype copy"
"stipend" etc.

I think you did a Great job!

Your venture into historic fiction must be a success. I believed every word to be true history. Once again, your writing shows the depth of your talent.

Great story and great ending. I hadn't ever thought about this possibility of passengers actually escaping the horror of the Titanic's fate. I love your mc's perspective.
This is excellent historical fiction. You're a very talented writer.

This is very good--very well written. Your dialogue is excellent. You had me engaged from the beginning of the story. You certainly won't be in Beginners for long.
Fantastically authentic. This certainly sets a high standard! Well done.

I guessed it was the Titanic right from the start, and the rest of the story did not disappoint. Well done, especially for your first attempt! :) I would love to read more if you've got it up your sleeve.
