The Second Mrs. Astor by Shana Abe

Madeleine Talmage Force is just seventeen when she attracts the attention of John Jacob "Jack" Astor. Madeleine is beautiful, intelligent, and solidly upper-class, but the Astors are in a league apart. Despte their twenty-nine-year age difference, and the scandal of Jack's recent divorce, Madeleine falls headlong into love. The newly expecting couple plans to return home from their honeymoon aboard an opulent new ocean liner, the RMS Titanic. The ensuing tragedy compels Madeleine to decide whether to accept the role assigned to her or carve our her own remarkable path.
