Historical fiction infused with spiritualism and science fiction. Five sisters grow up with a medium mother in the town of Spirit Vale, New York. As their lives take on different paths, they find themselves together on the Titanic's fateful voyage. You will meet some interesting historical figures such as Nichola Tesla and Sir Arthur Conan Doyle, and you will be intrigued by some real-life mysteries such as Robertson's prophetic book about a ship named Titan that sinks on its maiden voyage- published 14 years before the Titanic sinks. Enjoyable.
