Distant Waves written by Suzanne Weyn

This is a novel about 5 girls plus their Mom who follow the life path of being mediums, psychics, looking into crystal balls, talking to the dead and possibly foretelling the future.

Their life takes them from Spirit Vale, New York to London. In London the girls and their Mom attend a conference. With the conference over the girls accidentally get on board of the Titanic. The girls have had seen the sinking of the Titanic. Do the girls survive the sinking, do they reunite with their Mom in New York? does Jane's 'boyfriend' survive the sinking with her sister Mimi?

It is a good read, lots of details of people who lived at that time, and romance.
Its a good story but not certain how much of it deals with the Titanic, except for the foretelling of the future.
