Book Reviews

‘The best moments in reading are when you come across something - a thought, a feeling, a way of looking at things - which you had thought special and particular to you. And now, here it is, set down by someone else, a person you have never met, someone even who is long dead. And it is as if a hand has come out, and taken yours.’ Alan Bennett

“Many a book is like a key to unknown chambers within the castle of one’s own self.” ― Franz Kafka

Wishlist Wednesday ~ Waiting on Wednesday

Wishlist Wednesday is hosted by Dani at 'Pen to Paper', and Waiting on Wednesday is hosted by Jill at 'Breaking the Spine'. They are both weekly events that highlight an upcoming release that we are eagerly anticipating, or a book that has been on our wishlists for a while.

My choice today is Secrets of the Tides by Hannah Richell.

Synopsis from 'Goodreads':

Every family has its secrets. Some are small, like telling a white lie or snooping through a private drawer. Others are more serious like infidelity and betrayal. And some secrets are so terrible they must be hidden away in a deep, dark place, for if they ever came to light, they would surely tear a family apart.

The Tides are a family full of secrets. Returning to Clifftops, the rambling family house high up on the Dorset coastline, youngest daughter Dora hopes for a fresh start, for herself and the new life she carries. But can long-held secrets ever really be forgiven? And even if you can forgive, can you ever really learn to love again?

Secrets of the Tides is a compelling family drama with a dark thread of suspense at its heart.

Due to be published by Orion on April 12th 2012.
