Excellent presentation! Really brought Violet's story to life! Jane obviously loves her subject and it showed!
A very moving account by a talented lady. Her expressions were amazing, It had me in tears. Thanks Jane. Looking forward to another monologue from Jane.
A most enjoyable talk. It was interesting to hear Violet was terrified of water and couldn't swim yet loved her shipboard life. Lots of little insights. Fascinating how they got the babies and children on board the Carpathia. Had never thought about that aspect of the rescue; indeed, had never heard or read that was what they did. Well done Jane for keeping us informed and entertained.
