Peril and Adventure in the Land Once Called the White Man's Graveyard.John Winslow is a restless young man who drops out of college, tries many jobs, and finally goes to Africa to visit his missionary relative, Barney Winslow.

An opportunity to work as the personal secretary of Jeanine Quitana, a flamboyantly wealthy young socialite, seems to contradict Annie's calling, yet she feels it is the right step. Then a whirlwind trip to England and the change to meet royalty is followed by passage booked to America on the maiden voyage of the R.M.S. Titanic!Three very different lives, separated by continents, are destined to collide, yet how will this ever be when the icy Atlantic wreaks its destruction? Is the dark ocean as foreboding as the Dark Continent?
