A gripping dual-timeline novel of two women decades apart, facing their pasts and realities of a world at war.
A wonderfully written book, that weaves two timelines together in a way that flows and had me loathe to put it down. Evie and Louisa are decades apart but share a home on the North Carolinian shores of Ocracoke, they each face trials and questions about the past, as secrets are uncovered and their faith and ability to hope are tested.
A beautiful standalone that is not without reader payoff for longtime fans of Ms. White. I was swept into the heartfelt story of heartbreak, trial, and hope, and loved the family of blood and friendship that Louisa and Evie had to support them.
This book is a standout, and my new favorite book by this author, (though to be honest I haven't read a book by her that I haven't said that about!). An engrossing story that knit itself together in surprising, yet satisfying ways, shifting easily from the different perspectives and timelines, pulling me in and not letting me go. I highly recommend this amazing story of family, faith, secrets and new beginnings.
I received a complimentary copy of this book. Opinions expressed in this review are completely my own.
