Synopsis

Titanic Love Stories by Gill Paul

Love stories from the Titanic include a multi-millionaire John Jacob Astor and his wife Madeleine, who had eloped to escape the gossip-mongers. Only Madeleine and their unborn child would make it home. Then there was Daniel Marvin, whose wedding to Mary Farquarson was the first recorded on film. The groom helped his young bride onto a life raft but refused to save himself. And there were Edward and Ethel Beane, who had saved up for six years to get married and lost everything on the Titantic. They survived, but refused ever to talk about what happened to them.
