#65533; quatorze ans, Jamie Laidlaw revient au Canada. Il quitte l'Angleterre sur le Titanic qui fait son voyage inaugural. Mais le navire heurte un iceberg et sombre, emportant avec lui 1 500 personnes.

La nuit du naufrage, Jamie r#65533;ussit #65533; atteindre un canot retourn#65533; et grimpe dessus. Des cris affol#65533;s d#65533;chirent la nuit avant de s'#65533;teindre peu #65533; peu... Jamie doit lutter toute la nuit dans le froid glacial pour garder son #65533;quilibre sur le canot retourn#65533; qui risque #65533; tout moment de couler. Une fois #65533; bord du navire de secours le Carpathia, Jamie doit accepter le fait que son p#65533;re s'est noy#65533;.

Parmi les 2 200 passagers du Titanic, environ le tiers a surv#65533;cu. #65533; New York, les rescap#65533;s sont abasourdis de voir les milliers de personnes qui attendent l'arriv#65533;e du Carpathia : c'est l'histoire du si#65533;cle. Quelques semaines plus tard, Jamie apprend que le corps de son p#65533;re a #65533;t#65533; retrouv#65533; et qu'il a #65533;t#65533; envoy#65533; #65533; Halifax. Il entreprend alors de s'y rendre avec son fr#65533;re.

Fourteen-year-old Jamie Laidlaw is returning to Canada from England on the Titanic's maiden voyage, when the ship strikes an iceberg and sinks, with a loss of 1500 lives.

Fortunately, Jamie survives and manages to scramble aboard an overturned lifeboat. Frantic cries fill the night, lessening more and more as people in the water freeze and die, leaving an unearthly silence.

Of the 2200 people on the Titanic, only 705 survived. In New York, the survivors are astounded to see ten thousand people awaiting the rescue ship Carpathia's arrival - it is the news story of the century. Weeks later Jamie learns that his father's body was recovered, and is being returned to Halifax. He begins the journey there, with his brother, to bring his father's body home for burial.
