The Girl Who Came Home



Brief Synopsis:

THE GIRL WHO CAME HOME tells the story of a young Irish woman, Maggie Murphy, who reluctantly leaves her Irish home and her sweetheart, to start a new life in America with her aunt. They travel on RMS Titanic. Seventy years later, Maggie confides in her great-granddaughter, Grace, sharing her experience of the traumatic events of April, 1912. Maggie’s revelations have unexpected repercussions for them both.

Inspired by true events, The Girl Who Came Home poignantly blends fact and fiction to explore the Titanic tragedy’s impact and its lasting repercussions on survivors and their descendants.
