After a childhood in Argentina and formative years in England, Violet Jessop spent her entire career at sea. She was a stewardess for first-class passengers on the Titanic and she wrote an absolutely unique eyewitness account on the most written-about disaster of our time. Four years later, Violet was a nurse aboard the hospital ship Britannic when it struck a mine and sank to the bottom of the Aegean. But Titanic Survivor is much more. Violet Jessop's life story gives us a unique vantage point, whether in pantry, on deck or in a lifeboat. Jessop had a knack for spinning fascinating tales of fellow stewards, wartime alarums, impossible passengers, philandering shipmates, exotic ports and tragic deaths.A unique autobiography for those who want to know how it really felt, a story that could be told only by a Titanic Survivor.

A very good book on the life of a shipboard stewardess who survived two famous ship sinkings. Unfortunately, there pieces of her story that are missing or left unexplained.
