Author Profile: 

A baby is discovered floating on a piece of ice off the coast of Newfoundland. The baby is a survivor from the Titanic, and is taken in by a Newfoundland family. Aurora, as she is named, grows up in Newfoundland, but is isolated by other Newfoundlanders who are suspicious of her mysterious appearance in Newfoundland, as well as her mysterious appearance – her white hair and different coloured eyes. Eventually she is accepted, grows up, and marries the lighthouse keeper. Aurora raises a family, but keeps looking for answers regarding her own heritage.
