Surviving Savannah
Surviving Savannah | Patti Callahan
It was called "The Titanic of the South." The luxury steamship sank in 1838 with Savannah's elite on board; through time, their fates were forgotten--until the wreck was found, and now their story is finally being told in this breathtaking novel from the New York Times bestselling author of Becoming Mrs. Lewis. When Savannah history professor Everly Winthrop is asked to guest-curate a new museum collection focusing on artifacts recovered from the steamship Pulaski, she's shocked. The ship sank after a boiler explosion in 1838, and the wreckage was just discovered, 180 years later. Everly can't resist the opportunity to try to solve some of the mysteries and myths surrounding the devastating night of its sinking. Everly's research leads her to the astounding history of a family of eleven who boarded the Pulaski together, and the extraordinary stories of two women from this family: a known survivor, Augusta Longstreet, and her niece, Lilly Dawson, who was never found, along with her child. These aristocratic women were part of Savannah's society, but when the ship exploded, each was faced with difficult and heartbreaking decisions. This is a moving and powerful exploration of what women will do to endure in the face of tragedy, the role fate plays, and the myriad ways we survive the surviving.

sharread Wow these are some amazing reads. I'm not interested in Spying on the South, but anyone of the 3 is good to me. 2mo
mrsmarch I loooved Horowitz‘ Confederates in the Attic and would read Spying, especially since Olmstead is a well known personality here in Boston. Bayou Moon or Low Country would be my next votes. 2mo
Mynameisacolour These are awesome reads! So hard to choose but if I HAD to pick it would be either Low Country or Under the Bayou moon. I'd be happy to ready any of them though. 2mo
sharread @mrsmarch I'm open to any one especially since you read the author and enjoyed it. 2mo

Soubhiville One of the front few pages or the inner front cover, where ever there is blank space. It seems to be different in every book. 🤷‍♀️ 3mo

There were times that I felt the story needed to move along a little faster but I did enjoy this book. My favorite part was the end of the book. Not because it was ending but because the lingering questions throughout the story were answered, each and every one, in great detail. There were numerous times I would see a line and think wow I can relate to that feeling or it gave me a new perspective on something happening in my own life.
