The Lost Empress By: Steve Robinson
A Jefferson Tayte Genealogical Mystery
"On a foggy night in 1914, the ocean liner Empress of Ireland sank enroute between Canada and England. The disaster saw a loss of life comparable to the Titanic and the Lusitania and yet her tragedy has been forgotten.
When genealogist Jefferson Tayte is shown a locket belonging to one of the Empress's victims, a British admiral's daughter named Alice Stilwell, he must travel to England to understand the course of events that led to her death. Tayte's unique talents draw him to one of the greatest tragedies in maritime history as he unravels the truth behind Alice's death. Or did she survive, and if so, where has she been for all these years.
