Editorial Reviews

Review

The magic of the memory of a Maine day at its brilliant best, bringing back the nostalgic delight of a childhood summer, perhaps perfect in happiness, uncapturable now except for remembering….[T]he kind of transposed reading-into-actuality that leaves you practically as healthy and sunburned as two weeks vacation. (Boston Globe) --This text refers to the Paperback edition.

By A Customer on August 18, 2003
Format: Paperback
This third book of the Tide trilogy does not disappoint, as Joanna Bennett faces life on the island without Nils, during WWII. The reader is drawn sympathetically into the loneliness as well as the island's daily dramas. Joanna is a complex character, learning new things about herself all the time, and the reader is never sure if she will maintain faithfulness to the wonderful but long-suffering Nils. A rather different view of the war than is usually given in novels,the island characters prove that no one is safe or immune from the horrors of war, and yet love for the simple island life is heightened because of it. A satisfying read.

she is wonderful....this is part of a trilogy that I couldn't bear to put down and yet didn't want them to finish! If you have any Maine connection, you'll love her writing even more.
