Ship of Dreams

Ship of Dreams by Brenda Hiatt

Publisher: Brenda Hiatt

December 2010

Pages: 400

Historical Romance

Della flees San Francisco aboard a ship after being accused of a crime she didn’t commit. Della then introduces herself as Kent Bradford’s wife to an important investor, shocking Kent. Determined to not cause a scene he goes along with the ruse.

The story is set amid the real events of the final voyage of the ill-fated SS Central America. 

This is a story that takes the reader back in history and brings a tragic part of history to life for the reader.  The reader gets to know some historical people that were on a voyage that ended up having a very tragic end.  While the ship had a tragic ending the story of Della and Kent does not.  The reader is pulled into the story so well that they can picture the people and everything that happened quite well. Based in fact the story reads more like a story that is pure fiction and not the reality it really is. For readers that enjoy history and romance this is definitely a book worth reading and getting lost in.
