John Harper: Titanic – The Ship of Dreams, a book review by Joel.

Titanic A Ship of Dreams

Thanks to Christian Focus for sending me this book ‘Titanic A Ship of Dreams’ to review.

Living in Northern Ireland I hear a lot about the Titanic and it is especially interesting to read because it is the 100th Anniversary of its building/sinking.

This is the story of John Harper and his adventures on the Titanic with his daughter Annie Jessie (Nana) Harper. On the Journey they made many friends and saved many lives not only from the sea but also from hell. (His wife Annie died shortly after Nana was born).

I liked the way the book didn’t start at the boarding of the Titanic instead it started at a train station and I liked the way the author incorporated famous people into the story.

The most moving part would have to be the sinking and how John Harper saved many lives and even appealed to people while he was in the water. 

I thought it was a very good book and an interesting story, people ought to know about what John Harper did – I would thoroughly recommend this book to all young people.  You can read more about John Harper here.  Thanks again to Christian Focus.
