A voyage across the ocean becomes the odyssey of a lifetime for a young Irish woman…. Ireland, 1912… Fourteen members of a small village set sail on RMS Titanic, hoping to find a better life in America. For 17-year-old Maggie Murphy, the journey is bittersweet. Though her future lies in an unknown new place, her heart remains in Ireland with Samus, the sweetheart she left behind. When disaster strikes, Maggie is one of the few passengers in steerage to survive. Waking up alone in a New York hospital, she vows never to speak of the terror and panic of that fateful night again. Chicago, 1982… Adrift after the death of her father, Grace Butler struggles to decide what comes next. When her great-grandmother Maggie shares the painful secret about Titanic that she´s harbored for almost a lifetime, the revelation gives Grace new direction and leads both her and Maggie to unexpected reunions with those they thought lost long ago. Inspired by true events, The Girl Who Came Home poignantly blends fact and fiction to explore the Titanic tragedy´s impact and its lasting repercussions on survivors and their descendants. 1.

April 15, 1912 Soon, Titanic´s voyage will come to a deadly end with the sinking of the unsinkable. This is the story of the final 48 hours of the RMS Titanic, its first and last voyage. The story is told in a compelling countdown that ends mere hours after the ship´s sinking. This book describes the last days, actions, and thoughts of architect Thomas Andrews and passenger Margaret Brown, known as the Unsinkable Molly Brown, as they interact with other passengers and crew members during these last 48 hours. While Miss Brown enjoys her cruise and her interactions with everyone onboard, Mr. Andrews is at first proud and then haunted by this stately ship. What starts out as a happy and joyous occasion soon turns to dread and despair at the news that the Titanic has hit an iceberg. Miss Brown and Mr. Andrews are on the same yet very different mission of saving passengers while forgoing themselves and their own personal demons and dangers. While chaos and panic ensue, lives will soon be saved and also lost as the Titanic breathes her last breath and gives Molly Brown and Thomas Andrews very different endings. What were Captain Smith´s and Ismay´s thoughts and actions during this horrific time? How could such a proud start turn into absolute horror? What are the consequences of the decision to forgo more lifeboats? How could an exciting voyage with world elite onboard turn into a horrific voyage of death? 1. Language: English. Narrator: J.

Excerpt from Epochs in the Life of Jesus: A Study of Development and Struggle in the Messiah´s Work Springs, Mo., July, 1906, to an audience composed of ministers and a large and intelligent body of other Christian workers. The assembly requested the publication of the lectures. It is hoped that as pub lished they may be useful to some who desire a positive presentation of the career of Jesus in the light of modern knowledge and in full sympathy with the position given to Christ in the Gospels. No attempt is here made to tell the story of the life of Jesus, save as a brief summary now and then is necessary to the interpretation of that life. The at tention is rather called to the movement and climac teric power in the career of Christ. The historic forces of that life seem narrow from one point of view, but the current runs deep and swift. The turning points in the life of Christ are brought out sharply with less accent on other things, so that one may the better feel the titanic struggle that Jesus had with ecclesiastical tyranny and bigotry. If the reader can thus realize Jesus, he will find the Gospels luminous with fresh light. The lumber of learning is all left out here, that the attention of the reader may be focussed on Christ, who battled for human freedom in the most heroic of all con¿icts. He won the freedom of the human spirit at the great est possible cost. The Gentiles can now indeed see Jesus without throwing any preachers into a panic.
