Yesterday's Tides by Roseanna M. White: Book Review

 *Book received for consideration. All thoughts are my own.

In two world wars, intelligence and counterintelligence, prejudice, and self-sacrifice collide across two generations

In 1942, Evie Farrow is used to life on Ocracoke Island, where every day is the same--until the German U-boats haunting their waters begin to wreak havoc. And when special agent Sterling Bertrand is washed ashore at Evie's inn, her life is turned upside down. While Sterling's injuries keep him inn-bound for weeks, making him even more anxious about the SS officer he's tracking, he becomes increasingly intrigued by Evie, who seems to be hiding secrets of her own.

Decades earlier, in 1914, Englishman Remington Culbreth arrives at the Ocracoke Inn for the summer, never expecting to fall in love with Louisa Adair, the innkeeper's daughter. But when war breaks out in Europe, their relationship is put in jeopardy and may not survive what lies ahead for them.

As the ripples from the Great War rock Evie and Sterling's lives in World War II, it seems yesterday's tides may sweep them all into danger again today.

When I pick up a book by Roseanna M. White, I always know that as gorgeous as they are on the outside (seriously, this cover!!), the story on the inside will always be just as beautiful. Yesterday's Tide is no exception. It is a beautifully written dual timeline that draws the reader in. There are times that I struggle with dual timelines, as it can be difficult to fully be drawn into both equally. This one was not like that at all. Even with it's two historical timelines and multiple POVs, it all came together quite effortlessly. I found it to be a beautiful blend of historical content as well as romance and drama. If you enjoy dual timelines or historical romance, this is certainly one that is worth checking out.
