#BlogTour #BookReview for The Lost Sister by Kathleen McGurl @rararesources #TheLostSister @KathMcGurl

Three sisters. Three ships. One heartbreaking story.

1911. As Emma packs her trunk to join the ocean liner Olympic as a stewardess, she dreams of earning enough to provide a better life for both her sisters. With their photograph tucked away in her luggage, she promises to be back soon – hoping that sickly Lily will keep healthy, and wild Ruby will behave. But neither life at sea nor on land is predictable, and soon the three sisters’ lives are all changed irrevocably…

Now. When Harriet finds her late grandmother’s travelling trunk in the attic, she’s shocked to discover a photo of three sisters inside – her grandmother only ever mentioned one sister, who died tragically young. Who is the other sister, and what happened to her? Harriet’s questions lead her to the story of three sister ships, Olympic, Titanic and Britannic, and a shattering revelation about three sisters torn apart…


I really enjoyed this story – I love all books that have a feature on the Titanic in them even if it is only a smaller part as this one focused on all three sister ships – I thought that this one was great and I loved how the ships told the families stories. It is very well done and it was a lovely book to read!

I loved the setting and the way that the story was told was perfect, I loved the mix of telling the story through the dual timelines and the different characters getting to tell their stories

I must prepared the ones in the past and the characters there were definitely my favourites. It was a really story of tragedy and lost chances and regrets as well as the determination on others to succeed. A book to take you through a mix of emotions.

The snippets of the past really gave the book an added boost and it was really one that made you think and I loved how the author used what we know about the different ships to bring the story to life.

It is 4.5 stars from me for this one rounded up to 5 stars for Goodreads and Amazon!

Eventually she came to the bitter realisation that no one would pay her for a year off work to write a book, so she sat down and started to write one anyway. Since then she has published several novels with HQ and self-published another. She has also sold dozens of short stories to women’s magazines, and written three How To books for writers. After a long career in the IT industry she became a full time writer in 2019. When she’s not writing, she’s often out running, slowly.
