Publisher's Summary

Two sisters and one betrayal that will carry across generations...

In wartime Cornwall, 1943, a story between two sisters begins - the story of Adele and Amelia and the heartbreaking betrayal that will divide them forever. Decades later the efforts of one reckless act still echo - but how long will it be until their past returns?

The Returning Tide will sweep you away to the beautiful Cornish coast, full of secrets and mystery, and will be loved by fans of Kate Morton and Rachel Hore.

    "The returning tide"

    I enjoyed this book as it covered the past and the present so well in the story line. All through the story I had a thought that there was a twist on the story to come I wasn't that surprised but it made a good ending. Well worth listening to

    Story
    "Predictable"

    Sadly very predictable, quite pleasant but not something that kept me hanging on. Also got very frustrated by the narrators inability to pronounce Mawnan Smith correctly. Why don't they check these things first?!

    Story
    "Predictable "

    I enjoyed this as a gentle yarn, but it lacked depth. I found I was stopping at time changes to remember who was who. The characters never built enough depth to know or relate to them but despite that I enjoyed it on a superficial level. It made nice light listening

    "Wonderful"

    I really enjoyed listening to The Returning Tide by Liz Fenwick . It was a lovely story and brilliantly read by Anne Dover as usual. The way the two different years were linked was so good and was quite sad in places. How I remember staying in the exact area of Falmouth the story was written about - it brought back so many memories - thank you!

    "slow to start worth persevering."

    once you are half way through you need to finish it it starts very slowly but worth it

    Story
    "Liz Fenwick's best book yet"
    What did you like most about The Returning Tide?

    The different timelines are so deftly woven together that you feel intrigued but never confused.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    Adele. She is who I would like to be. Brave and generous.


    What does Anne Dover bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you had only read the book?

    Her voices bring the characters to life.


    If you made a film of this book, what would be the tag line be?

    Love and loss

    Story
    "I think I liked it....."

    I think I figured out who was who by chapter 26 but not convinced so I'll have to listen again. Very confusing at the start and the story jumps around a lot but it is expertly read by Anne Dover as usual so stick with it..... a nice ending if a little rushed.
