About the Book
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.

Wow! This author is one of my favorites, and I thought this novel was one of her best! I loved the dual timeline and the way the two stories intersected and came together. There were even twists and turns that I did not see coming, which kept me engaged and reading long into the night on more than one occasion. I loved the strong female leads and their courage. There were even a few cameos of characters from her other novels! The faith thread is solid and well integrated. The history was also well researched and fascinating. Honestly, there was nothing about this book that I did not like! This is definitely a novel that I will be rereading. I cannot recommend this book enough!
