Two years ago, her fiance perished during their voyage to America. Now she discovers it may have been murder…
The suspense in this novel!
I never could guess where we were going next, who could be trusted, or how it would all end. Well, that’s not exactly true–I knew Tillie and Morgan could be trusted, and I cheered for them to trust in their love for each other.
Besides that, I enjoyed that I was constantly guessing who the mysterious antagonist could be, whether friends who seemed trustworthy were true, and how the conflict between the determined Fenians could be resolved.
The love triangle was well-crafted, too, to never seem cheesy, forced, or overdone. In fact, I’ll say (refraining from spoilers) that it makes for a very satisfying resolution of the conflict between Tillie and Morgan in the end.
At times the very suspense I loved confused me slightly; sometimes it took me a moment to remember who exactly certain people were. But these moments were few and really just drove home the reality of how broad a scope of a story this was!
This is exactly the kind of book I love to read. Suspenseful and intriguing, with a dash of romance and a boatload of history to hold it all together! I heartily enjoyed learning more about the mysterious Fenians (an Irish faction I had never been introduced to before).
I just adore when I am granted an invitation to a new chapter of history that I haven’t yet read. Tide and Tempest did that for me. I heartily recommend this book to those who love Ireland, history, and page-flying reads!
