Book Discussion: Mon. 8/21 @ 7 p.m.

The book is about Tess, an aspiring seamstress, thinks she's had an incredibly lucky break when she is hired by famous designer Lady Lucile Duff Gordon to be a personal maid on the Titanic's doomed voyage. On board, Tess catches the eye of two men, one a roughly-hewn but kind sailor, and the other, an enigmatic Chicago millionaire. But on the fourth night, disaster strikes
