Hearts that Survive

Hearts that Survive—A Novel of the Titanic

Is Love More Powerful Than the Pain of Loss?

Lydia Beaumont and her new friend Caroline Chadwick plan Lydia’s wedding aboard the “grandest ship ever built.” Yet their lives take a tragic turn when the “unsinkable” Titanic goes down.

This epic tale of faith and perseverance follows their lives and the lives of their descendants as they struggle with all that was lost on that fateful night and what the future holds for those brave enough to face it.


“In the tradition of Maeve Binchy, Yvonne Lehman brings history to life in Hearts That Survive—both the chilling account of the sinking of the Titanic—and the visceral, tender realities of how life did go on and love conquered, survived, and thrived. A wonderful read!”

—Deborah Raney, Author of the Hanover Falls Novels and Beneath a Southern Sky

“Yvonne Lehman has succeeded in penning the finest book of her career. It’s not often a novel steps forward to claim the title of epic. Hearts That Survive goes beyond the page into the hearts of the reader. I experienced every defeat and every victory, and I longed for more after the last page.”

—DiAnn Mills, author of Attracted to Fire
