A Brilliant Night of Stars and Ice by Phaedra Patrick

This historical fiction book is based on the true story of Captain Arthur Rostron and crew and ship named the Carpathia. It also recounts the story of Kate Connolly who was a passenger on the Titanic. On April 15, 1912, Captain Rostron is alerted to a distress call issued by the crew of the Titanic. The Titanic had struck an iceberg and was in grave danger. This story recounts how the captain and crew rushed to aid the Titanic overcoming the challenges of being 4 hours away, pushing their ship and crew to its limits and avoiding icebergs. This book also tells the story of Kate Connolly, a third-class passenger on the Titanic. She experiences terror and confusion as she witnesses the Titanic sinking and the struggles of the hundreds of passengers that freezing night, without any hope for rescue. As she sits in a lifeboat she is left to wonder if anyone will survive this tragedy. I fell in love with this humble Captain and his crew. He didn’t consider himself a hero, but gave all the credit to his crew. I enjoyed reading about this different perspective of the Titanic tragedy.
