Publisher's Summary

Following the deaths of her last living relatives, Hetty Deveraux returns to her ancestral home, a crumbling estate in Scotland's Outer Hebrides, with the intention of renovating and reselling it as a hotel. As she dives headfirst into the repairs, she discovers human remains beneath a rotting floorboard in the basement. Hungry for answers, Hetty sets out to unravel the estate's secret - and the secrets of its former inhabitants, including Beatrice Blake, a woman who moved there a century ago with her husband, Theo, a famous painter. Following whispered rumors and a handful of leads, Hetty soon discovers that no one knows exactly what happened to Beatrice, only that her actions have reverberated throughout history, affecting Hetty's present in startling ways.

    "Narrator's voice annoying."

    I had a difficult time listening to the narrators voice. That made it difficult to enjoy the story.

    Story
    "Disappointing"

    I never really connected with any of the characters. The accents used by the narrator made the dialogue difficult to understand at times. And, honestly, the "mystery" of the bones discovered at the beginning of the story is not much of a mystery.

    Story
    "Love, Deceit and Mystery!"
    If you could sum up The House Between Tides in three words, what would they be?

    Intrigue, love, heartbreak


    What was one of the most memorable moments of The House Between Tides?

    The ending was not only a surprise but heartbreaking!


    Which scene was your favorite?

    The blossoming of forbidden love.


    Who was the most memorable character of The House Between Tides and why?

    Beatrice's character was not only memorable but I could relate to her heartfelt emotions and pain.


    Any additional comments?

    The author did a great job of making the reader really experience Scotland both in the modern day and 1910. At several points I thought I had it all figured out and was very surprised by the ending. I would highly recommend this story.
