Two Tides To Turn

By RR Gall

 

Synopsis

A family ripped asunder.
A terrible secret lurks in a thrilling novel of love, grief, and mystery.

Patrick thought his grandfather, John, died before he was born.
In later life, he finds out that it wasn’t true. For the first five years of Patrick’s life, they stayed in the same small village.
So why were they kept apart?

Patrick wishes to search the past to find the reason – but only if he can be united with his young daughter first.
And that means bringing her home to Scotland.
It means journeying to France to take her away from the care of her mother, Patrick’s ex-wife.

In 1915, with the war raging in Europe, John is a young man working on the family farm. Not yet old enough to enlist but aware of its looming threat, he meets Catherine. But his attempts at courtship end suddenly when an accident rips his life apart.

Told in alternate chapters, set, mainly, in South-West Scotland, this is the dramatic story of Patrick, interwoven with John’s traumatic life.




Christie’s Review

4.5 STARS

Well, this is one of those books I have to wait before I write a review. It is a book I had to really process before being able to write about it. It is a haunting story of love, grief, betrayals of the worst kind, and a mystery.

 

It’s a book about Patrick and his grandfather, John, told in parallel timelines.  Patrick grew up thinking his grandfather had died before he was born. Imagine his surprise when he realizes that he and his grandfather lived in the same village for years, but he was always kept away from him. After his own father’s death, he wants to know why. Thus, begins one mystery, but Patrick also wants to see his little girl again. That in of itself is another intriguing part of the storyline.

 

I can’t go into much more detail as it will spoil the book, and I definitely don’t want to do that. The synopsis doesn’t even scratch the surface of the intensity of this book. There really are no words to accurately tell you that. All the characters are very well fleshed out. I couldn’t put the book down until I was finished. The characters are still with me and probably will be for a while!

BWM-RBANNER

“This is Penny Reid at her finest.” — L.B. Dunbar, author

Beard With Me, an epic and breathtaking story from New York Times and Wall Street Journal bestselling author Penny Reid, is available now!

KDP_BWM

No one is better at surviving than Scarlet St. Claire and making the best out of circumstances beyond her control is Scarlet’s specialty. In an apocalyptic situation, she’d be the last person on earth, hermitting like a pro, singing along to her CD Walkman, and dancing like no one is watching.

Scarlet is clever, Scarlet is careful, and Scarlet is smart . . . except when it comes to Billy Winston.

No one is better at fighting than Billy Winston and raging against his circumstances—because nothing is beyond his control—is Billy’s specialty. In an apocalyptic situation, he’d be the first person on earth to lead others to safety, overcome catastrophe, or die trying.

Billy is fearless, Billy is disciplined, and Billy is honorable . . . except when it comes to Scarlet St. Claire.

‘Beard With Me’ is the origin story of Billy Winston and Scarlet St. Claire (aka Claire McClure) and is just the beginning of their epic love story.

The Beltane Choice (The Celtic Fervour #1)  by Nancy Jardine Blog Tour with Review & Giveaway (Win x1 signed paperback of The Beltane Choice to one UK winner; X1 kindle copy worldwide)

The Beltane Choice (The Celtic Fervour #1) 

by Nancy Jardine

 

Synopsis

AD 71 Northern Roman Britain
Lorcan of the Brigantes knows that unity of the northern tribes is essential when the Ancient Roman legions advance northwards to Brigantia. Yet, everything comes at a price. Using his captive, Nara, as a political bargain with the Selgovae comes with impossible stipulations. Battle at Whorl – Iron Age tribes against the Romans – is inevitable.

Will Nara have her Beltane choice?

The adventures of the Garrigill Clan begin…




Christie’s Review

4 STARS

The Beltane Choice is not only a sweeping story of love between two sworn enemies but also a history lesson as well.

Nara is trying to escape a wild boar when she encounters Lorcan of Brigantes. He comes to her aid, but then she soon finds herself his prisoner. Lorcan is immediately under her spell; however, he also sees that she will be a great political asset for him as well. As she spends more time with him, he soon discovers that she means much more to him. His biggest war may not be on the battlefield but in his own heart. 

Nara is a woman before her time. She is strong and independent. Even if her own father doesn’t love her, she soon finds a home with Lorcan’s tribe. She is also facing an internal battle. She isn’t sure who to trust, her own family or the new family she has come to love. 

I’m a huge fan of history and romance, so this book was right up my alley. However, the author made this book stand out in the historical romance/fiction genre. It’s magical yet very realistic. I don’t know much about this period in history, and I felt like I learned a great deal. One of my favorite parts of the book was the author’s notes in the back. She gives her readers a great background of that period. This is a must read for historical fiction/romance fans.
