One thought on “The Ebbing Tide

  1. Susan Emmet

    I so liked this last book in Ogilvie s trilogy.Joanna remains an evolving character, although perhaps the ending is a bit melodramatic after Nils comes home from the war.Persistent themes persist family, island rivalries and healings, malice and love, working hard despite, and being willing to change in a place and time where change and changelessness are sometimes at war.And coming home.cially after war Thought a lot about the burdens soldiers carry and often cannot speak of until they re ready [...]

    Wellat was a bit of a let down I found the first two books to be excellent, and I assumed the slower pace of the second one was setting up a active third book No Not the case If anything, this is even slower than the second, with almost all action occurring either off page or internally I still think it s worth reading, especially if you enjoyed the first two, but for me this is the weakest of the trilogy.

  3. Jen

    Wrapped up the Tide Trilogy The entire series moves slowly, intentionally so, interspersed with a dramatic moment This one was even slower and the end tipped me over from the line between Joanna being a strong woman and a headstrong stupid one It s not all about you, Joanna.

  4. Dianna

    The author was a friend of my grandmothers and I read all of her books while growing up from adolescence to my late teens and love and adore all of them

  5. Jackie G

    I enjoyed this series because of the setting a beautiful island in Maine and because the characters were interesting, but the situations were a bit formulaic Nice story.

    The best part of a great book is going to another place and time This triology provides that kind of experience
