THE RETURNING TIDE by Liz Fenwick is a powerful novel that brings the reality of war, loss, heartbreak, and ultimately love, to life for the reader, and all of it eloquently written with the sophisticated style and flair that is synonymous with Liz Fenwick.
This is a book about loss, misguided decisions, heartbreak and change, but it's also about hope, long-held secrets and friendships formed between the unlikeliest of people...it made me laugh out loud and cry a few times. I loved it.
An unforgettable read.
Engrossing and romantic - a perfect holiday read.
Liz Fenwick's romantic story of twin sisters in wartime Cornwall is as heartbreaking as it is absorbing. I got so wrapped up in Adele's story that I read it in one day.
A heart-tugging story of loss and recovery.
I really enjoyed this book. It had a wonderfully intriguing and compelling story line and I found the wartime details especially fascinating. Together with Liz's usual beautiful evocation of the Cornish scenery this was a brilliant read. I recommend it.
Authentic and compelling, this story of love and betrayal explores some fascinating human relationships against the backdrop of World War II. I loved it.
