The 705 survivors of the Titanic disaster were inevitably affected by the event long after the media sensation had died down. Some found their near-death experience a spur to active and productive lives, while others were forever dogged by grief for lost loved ones and opportunities. Taking the story beyond the lifeboats, this book examines the later lives of survivors such as the vilified White Star chairman J Bruce Ismay and American socialite Madeleine Astor.
