Julie Cook has been a journalist for over 20 years. After working in-house on top magazines such as Take a Break she became freelance and now writes regularly for titles such as the Daily Mail, The Sun, Telegraph, Bella, Red online and many more. The Titanic and the City of Widows it Left Behind is a book she has wanted to write for many years because her great-grandfather was a crew member who perished on board, leaving behind a wife and five children. Julie lives with her husband and two children in Hampshire.
"Julie Cook has provided a harrowing and emotional story of the Titanic's impact on those left behind. A tragic history of the vulnerable but the brave, as well as a tribute to the enduring power of family. The story of the disaster's widows uplifts and devastates in equal measure."--Gareth Russell, author of "The Ship of Dreams: The Sinking of the Titanic and the End of the Edwardian Era"
