A HYMN FOR ETERNITY
THE STORY OF WALLACE HARTLEY
BY YVONNE CARROLL
Back in print, the author spent years researching the life of Wallace Hartley,
conducting interviews with remaining members of his family. The bravery of the band and their leader playing hymns as the ship went down is one of the most
poignant aspects of the worst disaster to happen to the ill-fated British passenger liner. Who comprised the band? Who was Wallace Hartley and where did he come from? Not much had been written about this enigmatic band leader or of his part in the tragedy, beyond a few mentions in the many books on the disaster when her original book was published but he was one of the most important characters in the Titanic chronicle. Here, the author tells his story and remembers this British hero. Illustrated, Softcover, 128 pages.
