By The Light of the Silvery Moon by Tricia Goyer

From the back cover: “Destiny brought them together. Will tragedy draw them apart? Amelia Gladstone’s mind is filled with promise as she gazes at the marvelous new ship, ready for its maiden voyage. The Titanic hold the promise of a reunited family...and of possible love waiting on American shores. Nothing could mar Amelia’s joy, until she sees a ragged stowaway being escorted down the gangplank.
Down-and-out after squandering his fortune, Quentin Walpole thought his voyage to America ended on the Southampton pier. Then a sweet lady - his angel of mercy named Amelia - secured his passage with a spare ticket. Now he’s headed to America, eager for a second chance.
But once the voyage begins, the past confronts Quentin when he discover that his wealthy railroad tycoon father and older brother Damien are also on board. As Amelia tries to bring about reconciliation between father and son, she suddenly finds herself the center of both brother’s attention with a choice to make: Who can she trust with her heart? Then the fateful night arrives, and one brother faces a greater choice. Will Amelia’s fate ultimately be one of love or loss?”
While this book takes place all in the span of a week, set on the Titanic, it is not just a typical book about life on the Titanic. Rather, it is a retelling of the prodigal son, set on the Titanic, with a few new twists. Filled with redemption, forgiveness, and restoration.
