 AND THE BAND PLAYED ON by Denis Thornton
 

In 1912, a ship filled with emigrants in Third Class and high society folk in First Class, left Queen's Island, Ireland and set sail for America.  In First Class, life on board was pleasant and enjoyable.  In Third Class, life was spartan but the people weren't complaining, after all, they would soon be in a new land of opportunity.  No one knew what terrible thing was about to happen, but when it did, everyone on board whether rich or poor, found themselves in great danger.  In the end, what happened became a story of courage and sacrifice.
