We went on the day on the boat train…I was 7, I had never seen a ship before... it looked very big... everybody was very excited, we went down to the cabin and that's when my mother said to my father that she had made up her mind quite firmly that she would not go to bed in that ship, she would sit up at night... she decided that she wouldn't go to bed at night, and she didn't!This is the amazing story of how Eva survived the sinking of the Titanic the disaster that claimed the life of her father.

She was highly critical of the White Star Line for not providing enough lifeboats to save all of those on board.
