Promise Me This by Cathy Gohlke

Michael Dunnagan survived the sinking of the Titanic, thanks to the courage of Owen Allen, and promised to help Owen's family, his younger sister, Annie, in England and the rest of the family living in New Jersey, since Owen could not.

 Michael started to communicate to Annie through letters, but her anger over her brother's death was steeped in each of her responses. Eventually, Annie begins to lay aside her anger and their letters become friendlier. Michael saves up enough money to bring Annie to America just as WWI breaks out in Europe...then all communication with Annie ceases!
