Yesterday's Tides | Book Review


In 1942, Evie Farrow is used to life on Ocracoke Island, where every day is the same--until the German U-boats haunting their waters begin to wreak havoc. And when special agent Sterling Bertrand is washed ashore at Evie's inn, her life is turned upside down. While Sterling's injuries keep him inn-bound for weeks, making him even more anxious about the man he's tracking, he becomes increasingly intrigued by Evie, who seems to be hiding secrets of her own.

Decades earlier, in 1914, Englishman Remington Culbreth arrives at the Ocracoke Inn for the summer, but he doesn't count on falling in love with Louisa Adair, the innkeeper's daughter. When war breaks out in Europe, and their relationship is put in jeopardy, will their love survive?

As Evie and Sterling work to track down an elusive German agent, they unravel mysteries that go back a generation. The ripples from the Great War are still rocking their lives, and it seems yesterday's tides may sweep them all into danger again today.

Bestselling and award-winning author Roseanna M. White whisks you away to two periods fraught with peril in this sweeping and romantic dual-time tale.

Another five-star read from Roseanna M. White!

Yesterday's Tides connects World War I and World War II in an interesting story of romance and intrigue. Evie Farrow and Sterling Bertrand in 1942 and Louisa Adair and Remington Culbreth in 1914 prove to make the story so interesting, as they face the challenges of their times in different ways. Uncovering the connections between their timelines adds an appealing element of suspense to it all, and I flew through the chapters, hoping everything would work out well for these beloved characters. 

I so enjoyed the experience of reading this novel; it transported me to a different time and place, and I loved every minute of it. Yesterday's Tides is a lovely and delightful read that no historical reader should skip!

I received a complimentary copy of this book and the opportunity to provide an honest review. I was not required to write a positive review, and all the opinions I have expressed are my own.
