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 man 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, but he doesn’t count on falling in love with Louisa Adair, the innkeeper’s daughter. When war breaks out in Europe, and their relationship is put in jeopardy, will their love survive?
As Evie and Sterling work to track down an elusive German agent, they unravel mysteries that go back a generation. The ripples from the Great War are still rocking their lives, and it seems yesterday’s tides may sweep them all into danger again today.
Bestselling and award-winning author Roseanna M. White whisks you away to two periods fraught with peril in this sweeping and romantic dual-time tale.
Yesterday’s Tides by Roseanna M. White is an outstanding read. It beautifully ties both the present war and past war together into one unforgettable story. I fell in love with these characters. As the reader, I enjoyed reading about the some of the characters back when they were younger during the first World War. Then, how their issues from the past came spilling out into the current World War. Secrets, danger, and family history come alive on each page. Roseanna M. White’s novel is so engrossing, I could not put it down. Hope, survival, love, and friendship are the themes presented in this tale. This novel took me back in and out of the past. It made me hope that the current future would have a better outcome.
