    1. Christine Rebbert says:

      There was a great story in here, but it got lost among too many characters and too many references to God Jesus I didn t realize going in that we were going to be preached to continually, it seemed , and almost put the book down totally at the first instance of that At one point, when Lydia tells John that she s carrying her child, his response is to be silent except to tell her to read some Psalm If I were Lydia, pregnant out of wedlock in 1912, I probably would have thrown myself overboard if [...]

      Let me preface this review by saying that I have read a lot of books The number of read books on my profile is only a fraction of what I ve read in my entire life I ve read a lot of good books, some middling books, some books that were so great I m still in speechless awe, and some that were so terrible, I was left wanting to throw them across the room by the time I was done.This book definitely falls in that last category In fact, it is very fortunate that it was not thrown across the room into [...]

      Oh, boy I am not sure where to begin with this one.I can sum up my thoughts rather quickly reading this book is a big waste of your time The writing overall is OK and there were a couple of scenes that were written well the sinking of the ship itself so well written and put together that I think Lehman had a lot of help, because the rest of the book has plot holes the size of Titanic But let s not forget Lehman s wonderful writing throughout the book, such as She knew that he knew she knew he kn [...]

      What was supposed to be the maiden voyage to America for the greatest ship ever built, The RMS Titanic, turned into a horrific tragedy that forever changed the course of the lives of so many people The ship of dreams was thought to be unsinkable, but on that cold and icy night of April 14, 1912, the gaiety and liveliness of the passengers turned to horror, when the ship collided with an iceberg and began to take on water, slowly sinking into the North Atlantic From 2207 passengers only 675 survi [...]

      I have to start by saying that Christian fiction is not usually a genre I read Still, I was looking for Titanic themed books and decided to give it a try I don t think the blurb above correctly describes what the book is all about It covers the beginning and the end but there are a lot things happening in between The story starts on the Titanic Lydia Beaumont is aboard with the man she loves, John Ancell, and the man her father wants her to marry, Craven Dowd She is a rail road heiress and Ance [...]

      I really loved Hearts That Survive Creative and captivating storyline, well developed characters and realistic scenery captured my heart and kept me reading and reflecting until the last word was read I found it was very hard to put down.Lydia Beaumont haunted by past regrets, John Ancell who spun words into magic, and Craven Dowd the realist along with a host of other interesting characters that I met while reading, were original and refreshing The travelers also included actual people who were [...]

      Link to blog christianbookshelfreviewsHearts That Survive was such a great book Yes, there was a lot of sadness that can be expected from a book about the Titanic , but the characters and their journeys were so gripping.I immediately loved John and Lydia s love story it was so sweet and just overall wonderful I cried when certain things happened and especially towards the end with the poem.It was very interesting how Hearts That Survive covered generations not just one person s life I loved gett [...]

    13. Carissa says:

      Not the best or most accurate depiction of what actually occurred on the Titanic and lags dreadfully in the middling to end with a stronger finish than I expected The book could have been much better and I wish it had been.

    14. Jodi Woody says:

      I love everything Titanic and this one was not a disappointment The ending did seem a little rushed but all in all a good Christian romance I give it four stars I can recommend for high school age and up No swearing, violence, or sexual content.

    15. Carol Holcomb says:

      Anything about the Titanic tragedy has always fascinated me and I think this book did a great job with its fictional story My only criticism would be the quick growing up of the next generations as if rushing to the end of the book But overall a very good read

      I ve been fascinated with all things Titanic ever since my teens Ever since the film came out in 1997, I always wanted to know everything I could about the grand ship that sank on her maiden voyage Now, with the rerelease of the film, my passion towards the subject has reignited, and as part of my hunt for new material about the Titanic, I came across this book Sadly, it didn t live up to my expectations, and it really pains me to rate it so low.Having had my share with romance novels by Daniell [...]

    21. Lwf says:

      I bought this as a Kindle book as I enjoy all things Titanic My grandfather knew one of the Philly families which perished on the ship so guess this always intrigued me Although the book is fiction, it has a lot of facts intertwined within the book so it actually feels as if you are reading a real account of real events on the Titanic I don t want to write anything about the book and give away what it is about because that is what I d have to do I found the writing very good The other people in [...]

    22. Brenda says:

      I have read a few books that revolve around the Titanic, but Hearts that Survive easily is my favorite The author provides the reader with very realistic characters and scenes that make you feel as if your right on board the ship Even though I knew ultimately what would happen with the ship this story took a few twists I didn t expect.Lydia Beaumont knew her father had hoped that she would marry thirty five year old Craven Dowd the man who ran his railroad company, but she has other ideas Her he [...]

    23. Naomi Blackburn says:

      I must say that I read this book a bit back for the publisher through Netgalley and have really wanted to think out my review Because the publisher asked for lead time and I wanted to really give the book a chance to gain hold this was easy to do.I enjoyed the base story to Hearts that Survive and felt the messages the author was trying to convey were excellent However, her methods in doing it were not In my opinion, authors who are inmature in their writing experience or just mediocre poor writ [...]

    24. Kathleen Kelly says:

      I have always been fascinated with the Titanic and with the 100th anniversary of the sinking coming up soon I have been reading my share of books and articles regarding this tragic story Hearts that Survive is not only a story of the Titanic, but a fictional account of the survivors The first half of the book tells the story of Lydia Beaumont and her plans to marry the love of her life, the secret that she is keeping from everyone except the groom, the wedding, and the sinking of the great ship [...]

    26. Deanna Sletten says:

      This novel was an interesting read and it was obvious that plenty of research had gone into it since it pertains to the sinking of the Titanic and its effect on the characters who survived And most important of all the book did hold my interest enough to keep me reading But I have mixed feelings about this book On one hand, the story was interesting and well thought out It did have the potential of being a great novel On the other hand, I felt the story was rushed, that the author skipped over d [...]

    27. Heather says:

      This book had a lot of potential and there was a great story hidden in it I don t think it was executed as well as it could have been I realize a lot of time was passing but the last quarter of the book seemed rushed and jumpy I did not realize going in that this was a kind of Christian Fiction I didn t mind it but in a way, it seemed inconsistent Honestly, I felt some of the christiany bit was either on the wrong places or just came out of nowhere Some of the themes in the book also led me to w [...]

    28. Sandra says:

      This book could have been something wonderful The story is great the main story, before it starts rambling and dragging on into subsequent generations and decades , and the author has talent The problem is that talent isn t consistent and only shines through occasionally The book is filled with inconsistencies, confusing shifts, and just poor writing I felt for the characters, and there were many parts where things really came together to make a good reading experience But overall, this book may [...]

    29. Cathy says:

      A beautiful story surrounding the Titanic disaster, the lives lost and the love and family found Following the main character, Lydia, the story is interwoven with those connected to her through friendship and tragedy While the Titanic s maiden voyage was key to the tale, much of the story took place after the survivors arrived in New York and involved the lesser known assistance provided by the people of Nova Scotia.I loved some of the characters, their complicated relationships, and how the sto [...]

    30. Julie says:

      At first, this book seemed like it mirrored the movie Poor little rich girl Guy she loves, rich guy who is kind of a jerk But where the movie or less ends with the sinking, this book kind of begins Then comes the part where you can t put it down How Lydia changes, how Caroline kind of changes, but she was never really snooty and introspective anyway But I suppose if you live through a tragedy like that, it would change you I just thought they all got over it rather quickly It was a really good [...]
