On 10th April 1912, the new RMS Titanic set sail on her fateful voyage from Southampton to New York. Among those on board were 13 newly-wed couples, with dreams of starting a new life together. Titanic Love Stories tells the tales of these honeymooners. Featuring haunting portraits of these couples, these true stories of love, tragedy, heroism and hope are more remarkable than any work of romantic fiction. The love stories include: multi-millionaire John Jacob Astor and his much younger wife Madeleine, who had eloped to Europe to escape the gossip-mongers back home in America. Only Madeleine and their unborn child would make it home. Daniel Marvin, son of a pioneering movie-maker, who seemed to have a bright future working among the Hollywood greats. The groom helped his young bride, Mary, into the lifeboat but sacrificed himself. Edward and Ethel Beane, who had saved for six long years before marrying and embarking on a new life in America, only to lose everything when the ship went down.
