A very interesting story! Thanks for sharing! I like the twist at the end, the titanic...good job.
That was a surprise at the end. I wonder how many stories like that are floating around.
Wonderful first paragraph.

The dialogue was smooth and authentic.

I really like the extra touches. "Blue Danube Waltz" "tintype copy"
"stipend" etc.

I think you did a Great job!
Your venture into historic fiction must be a success. I believed every word to be true history. Once again, your writing shows the depth of your talent.
Very much enjoyed the twist at the end. Well done...keep writing.
Great story and great ending. I hadn't ever thought about this possibility of passengers actually escaping the horror of the Titanic's fate. I love your mc's perspective.
This is excellent historical fiction. You're a very talented writer.
This is very good--very well written. Your dialogue is excellent. You had me engaged from the beginning of the story. You certainly won't be in Beginners for long.
Fantastically authentic. This certainly sets a high standard! Well done.
I guessed it was the Titanic right from the start, and the rest of the story did not disappoint. Well done, especially for your first attempt! :) I would love to read more if you've got it up your sleeve.
