About the Hero of the Titanic: Out of work and homeless, the handsome Italian, Roberto, struggles to adjust to immigrant life in Boston. He fights ethnic discrimination, murder charges, illness, and war, while risking his own life to save others. Through it all, he remains linked to the Swedish-American woman, Anna, whose life he had saved in the Titanic tragedy.
Hero of the Titanic is Lilly’s fifteenth book and her second historical novel. She has received many awards for her research and writings. As this book goes to press, she is working on a nonfiction manuscript about the Swedes on the Titanic.
