Meanwhile, in Hartley Bay, villagers met rescued passengers and crew on the beach and escorted them to the nursing station and community hall, where they were served hot drinks and food.
With relief, Reece's wife, Betsy, greeted Duncan and her daughter. After changing into warm clothes, they and a handful of others shuffled along the village boardwalks to the homes of friends and relatives.
Shortly before dawn, when the Laurier arrived in Hartley Bay, Clarke helped the Coast Guard escort survivors onto the icebreaker and conduct repeated head counts.
But there was confusion about the manifest: Catching a ferry is much like boarding a bus--not all travelers' names are recorded.
By the time the Laurier docked in Prince Rupert at pm, they were presumed dead. The Queen sits at a depth of ft. They also searched unsuccessfully for the ship's logbooks and examined the wreck for hull and structural damage.
The bridge crew "did not adhere to sound watch-keeping practices and failed to detect the vessel's improper course. During the 14 minutes the ship sailed off course and struck Gil Rock near Gil Island, the report said they were having a "personal conversation.
On the day the TSB report was released, Lilgert issued his first statement since the accident: "I continue to grieve for the missing persons and would with all my heart exchange my life for theirs.
The TSB report also notes that "the navigation equipment was not set up to take full advantage of the available safety features.
An alarm system that warned if the ship was too close to shore was also switched off, which was routine on this route. Otherwise, it would have sounded continuously through narrow Grenville Channel.
The TSB also found that some crew members had observed marijuana use by off-duty crew. Robert Baratheon had been their ally, but now he was dead too, and his younger brothers meant nothing to him.
Meanwhile, the truth of Joffrey's origins are being circulated, as Joffrey, Myrcella , and Tommen are not Robert's children nor of Baratheon blood, but the illegitimate offspring of Cersei and Jaime Lannister with no claim to the Baratheon line.
At the council, Lord Umber declared that there is only one king he would ever serve, the King in the North.
The call was then taken up by all of Robb's bannermen, chanting "the King in the North! Robb was declared king by not just the northern lords, but also several of the lords of the Riverlands , as the Starks had come to relieve the Riverlands from an invasion by the Lannisters.
Therefore, King Robb's claimed kingdom includes both the North and the Riverlands. However, in practice, during the course of the War of the Five Kings, Robb's forces only maintain firm control of the Riverlands north of the River Trident , particularly around the regional capital of Riverrun.
The "Kingdom of the North" came to a temporary end after the Red Wedding when Roose Bolton , who conspired with House Frey and House Lannister, initiated a massacre of the northern army and personally stabbed Robb Stark through the heart.
However, Walder Frey and all of his sons were secretly massacred shortly afterward by Arya Stark in retaliation for their roles in the Red Wedding, severely weakening the Freys' hold on the Riverlands.

I could not connect with Elizabeth or really understand who she was until the last 50 pages or so, in fact the last 50 pages proved to be the most enjoyable for me.
Had Elizabeth been written how she was near the end the whole way through the book, this would be a very different review.
As it stands, I struggled to feel anything for Elizabeth and did not really feel that she had been well captured. There is a lot of history in this but the book gets lost amongst the fact and there was little enjoyment for me reading this, I would give this a miss.
Aug 03, Anita rated it liked it. King Richard II is becoming increasingly unpopular due to his high taxation and confiscation of the estates rightfully belonging to the English landed gentry.
When the King claims the estates of Henry Lancaster and banishes him from the country, a time of political upheaval and contestation for the Crown ensues.
Henry returns from exile to reclaim his lands, and backed by the powerful Percy family from the North, he raises an army, deposes Richard and becomes King Henry IV.
Meanwhile, there are other contenders for the throne, the most legitimate being young Edmund, nephew of Elizabeth. The Percy family then begins to make plans to usurp Henry and replace him with eight year old Edmund, standing as regents until he reaches maturity.
This will give the already powerful Percy family, the right to rule over the entire country. Elizabeth comes across in this story as a strong-willed, independent, passionate woman driven by ambition, creating havoc in the Percy family with her bid to see her nephew on the throne of England.
She acted from purely selfish motives, accelerating the death of the husband she supposedly worshipped, and bringing her father-in-law to ruin.
I could not believe that in those times a woman would have been allowed to attend strategic meetings and voice her opinions; although she obviously did much to persuade her husband of the righteousness of her cause.
The political strategies and the treachery of the various factions were described in perhaps too much detail, which became tedious at times.
But altogether I mostly enjoyed this view of history from a feminine POV. Anne O'Brien is writing historical fiction, therefore there is some liberty in writing, but this also gives an author licence to 'fill in the gaps' where things are just not known.
I knew from context who the heroine of this novel, Elizabeth Percy, nee Mortimer, was, but I can't say I knew anything about her and the known historical facts are unlikely to warrant their own book.
At Catherine Morland in Austen's Northanger Abbey tells us of history, "The quarrels of popes and kings, with wars or Anne O'Brien is writing historical fiction, therefore there is some liberty in writing, but this also gives an author licence to 'fill in the gaps' where things are just not known.
At Catherine Morland in Austen's Northanger Abbey tells us of history, "The quarrels of popes and kings, with wars or pestilences, in every page; the men all so good for nothing, and hardly any women at all This is a particularly tumultuous period of history with an anointed king being deposed and his throne usurped by a man who was not even the heir apparent.
I was moved to consider if Shrewsbury could perhaps even be considered the first battle of the civil strife commonly known as 'The Wars of the Roses'?
Having finished the book I was also intrigued to look up what happened to some of the characters. As this was a preview copy, I don't know if there will be any information on this in the finished novel.
Overall, a good book, not a great one, but worth a read. I found it quite sad in places. Anything that raises an interest in the role of women as active participants in medieval society and not just pawns has got to be a positive thing in my opinion.
Aug 14, Jo-anne Atkinson rated it really liked it. Granddaughter of a royal prince, Elizabeth Mortimer has Plantagenet blood flowing through her veins so her dynastic marriage to Harry Percy, son of the Earl of Northumberland, is no surprise.
Percy, known as Hotspur, is an able soldier and has been loyal to King Richard II despite his inept governance.
When Elizabeth's exiled cousin Henry Bolingbroke lands in Yorkshire ready to take back his inheritance Hotspur and his father pledge loyalty and back Henry of Lancaster to the throne.
Even when Granddaughter of a royal prince, Elizabeth Mortimer has Plantagenet blood flowing through her veins so her dynastic marriage to Harry Percy, son of the Earl of Northumberland, is no surprise.
Even when Richard is found to have died in captivity the Percys support Henry. Elisabeth, however, is interested in the rights of her nephew, Edmund of March, who technically is the heir to the throne.
Even when a failed coup sees Hotspur killed, distraught Elizabeth cannot see how her family ties may have destroyed her marriage ties. Once again Anne O'Brien has found a historical figure about whom much and yet little is known.
Elizabeth Mortimer was closely linked to the politics of the throne through blood and marriage and her O'Brien has given her a voice.
In common with O'Brien's other works this fictionalisation comes with a heavy dose of romance which can be irritating at times but the machinations and complexity of medieval history are carefully contextualised and handled well.
It is hard to write a convincing novel about real characters in history and O'Brien's books are on the 'populist' end of the scale but are also a really good read.
Oct 03, M. Queen of the North by Anne O'Brien is an engaging novel. Elizabeth Percy is an intriguing character - in many ways just as headstrong as her husband - Harry Hotspur, and with a firm belief in the value of her own royal birthright.
The blurb for the book is, sadly, misleading. Much of Elizabeth Percy's vitriol is not directed against Richard II, indeed she seems to really rather like him for the brief appearance he makes, but rather against the next king, Henry IV, who usurps the throne, with the Queen of the North by Anne O'Brien is an engaging novel.
Much of Elizabeth Percy's vitriol is not directed against Richard II, indeed she seems to really rather like him for the brief appearance he makes, but rather against the next king, Henry IV, who usurps the throne, with the support of the Earl of Northumberland and her husband, but who then fails to pay the desired blood price.
It is Henry IV that she wishes to see removed from the throne of England, not Richard II, although it is her nephew that she wishes to replace him with.
In this, her husband is very much in agreement. There is a wonderful sense of impending doom throughout the first half of the novel, but I didn't feel as though the second half succeeded with quite the same sense of drama.
That said, Elizabeth is too interesting a character to not want to read about all of her life, and I enjoyed the character's own journey to self-realisation that occurs by the final pages of the book.
All in all, a firm addition to Anne O'Brien's cast of somewhat 'unlikely' heroic women of the Middle Ages who have sadly been overlooked by the joy that is popular history.
Thanks to Netgalley for my copy. Aug 24, Amy McElroy rated it it was amazing. This is such an emotional read, I was almost sobbing at some parts but not all were sad tears.
I think most people who enjoy history have heard of the Percys of Northumberland and the Mortimers, although I was aware of the troubles faced by Henry IV I had never read much about it so this was really interesting for me.
What I liked about this book was that it's told from the viewpoint of a female and her involvement in plots and intrigues but we also still get to read details of the battles as well This is such an emotional read, I was almost sobbing at some parts but not all were sad tears.
What I liked about this book was that it's told from the viewpoint of a female and her involvement in plots and intrigues but we also still get to read details of the battles as well as how life was for ladies at that time.
There's also vivid descriptions of many castles which I am a big fan of! As a Mortimer, Elizabeth finds her loyalties torn but eventually her Mortimer loyalty wins through but at great cost which appears to have had a continuous impact on the remainder of her life.
Henry Percy Hotspur is an individual I'd heard of but knew little about and I found his story to be very intriguing.
I don't like to give spoilers so will avoid giving any but this book is the result of research and imagination and is a wonderful read that is beautifully written.
As well as learning a lot about usurpation by Henry IV and the uprisings he later faced I found it all to be written in such an easy to read manner.
I've mentioned before that one of the reasons I enjoy historical fiction is because I am always learning and this book as well as being very enjoyable taught me about events I previously had little knowledge of.
