Book Review-Against the Tide

1 Dec

The Summary:

Against the Tide was written by Elizabeth Camden, and takes place in Boston in the late 1800s.

The story follows Lydia Pallas, a translator for the US Navy.  Lydia has her life in a neat and orderly pattern-everything the same, day in and day out, and that’s the way she likes it.

Until Alexander Banebridge enters her life.  He is dashing, adventurous-and needs Lydia’s translation skills.

The two form a friendship, a mutual admiration, and the relationship begins to turn into something more, but Alexander’s dark past casts a shadow over everything Lydia does, and eventually brings her orderly life crashing down upon her.

Can Alexander make peace with his past and keep Lydia safe?

My Thoughts:

I liked the setting of this book, and enjoyed the story line.  It was well-written, and I really enjoyed the humorous banter between Lydia and Alexander.  I didn’t care for the fact that Alexander was kind of wishy-washy-going back and forth between “I really care for you, and we can never be together” kind of thing, and he continually put her in danger-a little tough to believe someone would do that if they really cared for someone.  Otherwise, I really did enjoy this book, and it made for an interesting read.

I received a complimentary copy of this book from Bethany House for my unbiased review-thank you!  🙂
