S.O.S is about a family that was on the Costa Concordia shipwreck in Italy. The book is told by Georgia, Dean and their daughters Cindy, Val and Debbie. Debbie did not go on the trip as she had just gotten married, but after it all hit the news she had to hold down the fort back at home while they tried to get back home.
It is amazing what they had to go through to get off the ship. And then to hear about how they were treated once they got off the ship was absolutely horrible. But they refused to split up from each other and between everyone they were able to overcome all the obstacles and make it home.
I received a free e-copy of this book in order to write this review. I was not otherwise compensated.
About the Book
With powerful detail, an American family chronicles how they survived the notorious 2012 Carnival Cruise Line’s Costa Concordia shipwreck off the coast of Italy that tragically claimed the lives of thirty two passengers.
S.O.S.: Spirit of Survival is a one‑of‑a‑kind story of the incredible fortitude that ordinary people can conjure in order to overcome even the most harrowing of situations. Told from the point of view of each of the five members of one family, this book offers a unique and detailed look into the story behind the headlines surrounding the Costa Concordia’s sinking off the coast of Isola del Giglio, Tuscany in January of 2012. Their astounding account of the events before, during and, perhaps most shockingly, after the enormous cruise ship ran aground are sure to captivate and shock readers. However, the true message of this book is hope and profound inspiration, as this family’s bond deepened and strengthened through their journey of survival together..
