Editorial Reviews


Sarah Beard's first novel was very good. This second work is phenomenal. I'm decades beyond the YA market and think Tolstoi's Anna Karenina is the best novel of all time, but I'm not above quibbling with a number of Lev Nikolaevich's decisions in writing. I have no such qualms about Beyond the Rising Tide. It is impeccable. The characters are well-formed, attractive without being cloyingly sweet. The revelation of the admittedly bizarre plot is gradual and masterful. I never saw plot twists coming (which inevitably evokes an eye-roll and unsavory response). I had never encountered a cosmology or eschatology like the one that Sarah lays out here, but having read plenty of science fiction, I rolled with the punches. When my wife explained that it's pretty standard LDS theology, it made a bit more sense, but I was enjoying the story without the hint. Anyone can read the novel at face value and without skepticism. They imagery in this world and the next is luscious and lyrical. The language is pure and flowing. Figures of speech are subtle and always appropriate (I find modern authors cannot help themselves bludgeoning readers with inept similes). As a former editor, I appreciate how hard Sarah and her editors labored to make the text almost flawless. Enough of the scholarly harrumphing. No matter your age, if you want to thoroughly enjoy a romance, read Beyond the Rising Tide. If you want to feel good about the world, read Beyond the Rising Tide. When you're done, if you can't wait for Sarah to write another, add your voice to my plea. And, by the way, read her Acknowledgments. They are as lively as the novel itself and explain a lot about how she achieved this triumph. --Paul D. Garrett (Amazon Verified Review)

Sarah Beard I finished your lovely book Beyond the Rising Tide last night.... So in less than three nights I savored every page. There is is so much that I loved about it it's hard to start. The passion that you put into writing this story is phenomenal. I felt like part of the characters and can so relate to many of their tragedies, hurts, loves, past and present and in finding themselves again..... When he finds his mom and all that happens after that point left me spellbound and mesmerized...... Thank you for sharing such a delightful story....... --Amazon Verified Review

This is an enthralling story, but it's not what I loved most about this book. I loved the words. I loved the lyrical, poetic narrative, and the lovely setting. I also loved the characters. What a treasure. --Julie P. (Amazon Verified Review)
