About Orphans of the Storm
Nice, France, 1911: young seamstress Marcella Caretto is determined to divorce her controlling husband Michael. But while awaiting the judges’ decision on the custody of their two small boys, Michael receives news that changes everything. Meanwhile New York socialite Margaret Hays is heading home aboard the RMS Titanic. As the ship sets sail, carrying two infants bearing false names, the paths of Marcella, Michael and Margaret cross – and nothing will ever be the same again.
