Phyllis Titus grew up hearing the story of a grandfather shed never met who booked passage on the Titanic and missed its departure by seven minutes. Shed always wondered how this happened, and what could possibly have kept him from boarding the ship. It was not until 1997, while attending the Memphis opening of Titanic-The Exhibition, that her questions were finally answered. Thats when she learned about the purpose for her grandfathers European trip, the mysterious woman he met while travelling across the Atlantic, their planned rendezvous at the Southampton Dock before returning to the States on Titanics maiden voyage, and the reason why he never made it aboard. In the years since then, Mrs. Titus has shared a condensed version of this story with countless people, including strangers who ask her to explain the meaning of the 7MINSL8 message on her license plates.

IN the early morning hours of April 15, 1912, the icy waters of the North Atlantic reverberated with the desperate screams of more than 1,500 men, women, and children—passengers of the once majestic liner Titanic. Then, as the ship sank to the ocean floor and the passengers slowly died from hypothermia, an even more awful silence settled over the sea. The sights and sounds of that night would haunt each of the vessel’s 705 survivors for the rest of their days. Although we think we know the story of Titanic—the famously luxurious and supposedly unsinkable ship that struck an iceberg on its maiden voyage from Britain to America—very little has been written about what happened to the survivors after the tragedy. How did they cope in the aftermath of this horrific event? How did they come to remember that night, a disaster that has been likened to the destruction of a small town? Drawing on a wealth of previously unpublished letters, memoirs, and diaries as well as interviews with survivors’ family members, award-winning journalist and author Andrew Wilson reveals how some used their experience to propel themselves on to fame, while others were so racked with guilt they spent the rest of their lives under the Titanic’s shadow. Some reputations were destroyed, and some survivors were so psychologically damaged that they took their own lives in the years that followed. Andrew Wilson brings to life the colorful voices of many of those who lived to tell the tale, from famous survivors like Madeleine Astor (who became a bride, a widow, an heiress, and a mother all within a year), Lady Duff Gordon, and White Star Line chairman J. Bruce Ismay, to lesser known second- and third-class passengers such as the Navratil brothers—who were traveling under assumed names because they were being abducted by their father. Today, one hundred years after that fateful voyage, Shadow of the Titanic adds an important new dimension to our understanding of this enduringly fascinating story.

When the liner the R.M.S Titanic sank in the early hours of the morning of Monday 15th April 1912, with the loss of over one thousand lifes, it was one of the most tragic events of the early twentieth century. This story not only records the events of that day in graphic detail, but recalls the memories of a survivor, a man called Harry Branch. Harry Branch was born in Miles Platting Manchester in 1883. Life in post Industrial Revolution Manchester was tough. Both his parents passed away before he was six years of age. Branch soon finds himself been cared for in a workhouse, where the strap, administered by a bully of a master, is the dominant form of discipline. He survives the harshness of the workhouse, then aged fifteen years, manages to escape and make his way to London. For the next few years he works as a cobbler's assistant, before he meets the man who takes him under his wing, changes the direction of his life and leads him down the road to a life of crime.Branch's life in crime proves to be successful, but when in 1909 an attempt to rob a bank fails he is caught and sent to prison for twenty-five years. Feigning illness he succeeds in hoodwinking the prison authorities into believing he is gravely ill. During a period of convalescence in a London hospital, he manages to escape. Then he is given the opportunity to escape from the country when he is offered a ticket for the maiden voyage of the Titanic. It is too good an opportunity to turn down so he buys the ticket and assumes the identity of another man. Harry Branch, now known as William Devitt, finds himself on the liner sailing to America. A new life in North America beckons. On board he meets a wealthy father and son travelling to Canada in first class accommodation. They are travelling to Canada to make a new life for themselves. But then disaster strikes when the vessel hits the iceberg. Branch helps to launch a collapsible life-raft from the vessel. In doing so he survives the disaster and makes onto the Carpathia, the vessel that came to rescue survivors. He seeks to take advantage of the disaster and exploit the death of the wealthy father and son in the tragedy to grasp an opportunity to make a new life for himself in Edmonton, Canada, and in doing so become a successful business magnate.
