Nothing drowns out the sound of drowning....
The survivors of Titanic arrive in New York City on a rainy April morning, but being back on dry land doesn't end the terror, and for some of the passengers, the nightmares are just beginning.

However, Titanic has scarred both of them, and part of her wants to escape into the night, to start her new life all over again. Meg knows she must find the strength to help Charlie recover from Titanic and face the demons of her past, which includes going back to Southampton to face her mother and uncle. Will she stay by Charlie's side or look for another way to dissolve their arranged marriage?
