The Returning Tide - Liz Fenwick

This is a story about families and finding out the truth about what happened seventy years ago in the second world War to drive two sisters apart.  Now at 90, Ellie is helping her loved grand daughter celebrate her wedding at the family home in Cornwall and she is wondering her sister and her wartime love.

I always like a good second world War story, and this one was enjoyable although the flow between the historical story and the current storyline was a little bit stilted for me.  Still it was filled with lots of strong female characters and windswept Cornwall. 3/5

Books are a much better media for stories told through different times or in flashbacks than movies, I find. I'm glad you liked this one.
