Publishers Weekly On-line
Until age 12, Catherine "Cappy" Leary lives, grows and plays with the neighboring Loughlin family in the South Carolina lowcountry town of Seaboro. After the accidental death of the Loughlins' youngest son, a tragedy for which Catherine blames herself, her father moves the family across the state. Fast forward to Catherine's 30th birthday, when she reluctantly returns to Seaboro for the first time in 18 years to scatter her father's ashes. As she reconnects, she uncovers new information about her father's ties to the area that help her release her guilt and learn to love freely. Henry's warm, smoothly paced novel explores well-traveled themes of reconciliation and rebirth with fresh energy.

    Highly Recommend - What a wonderful book !!

    This is my first Patti Callahan Henry books to read and it was beautifully written. I felt I as though the characters were people I know in my life. I couldn't put it down. I can't wait to read the next book. Great job Patti Henry Callahan.

    A New Favorite!

    Between the Tides is one of those novels that draws the reader in and absorbs you into the lives of the characters. I lived with Catherine as a child -- understanding, empathizing; only to follow her into adulthood willingly and compassionately as she is forced to explore her fears and doubts and insecurities. I couldn't wait to get back into this other-life at the end of every day and dreaded closing the book for the last time. A must for cold, rainy days or hot afternoons at the beach!

    Good, But Not Great

    I hesitated to actually recommend this book. Although the writing is good and keeps you interested, it was easy to figure out the 'twist' early on.

    A Truly Inspiring Book with Secrets Hidden in Every Page!

    My friend's mom talked me into buying this book, and though it took me nearly 3 months to finally read it, the touching story will remain with me for a long time. This book is a beautifully written story that will make you laugh, cry, and leave you begging for more!

    A Must Read

    I started reading Between the Tides towards the beginning of summer, put it down for a while and then finished reading the book today. You can learn a lot about yourself and life through Catherine Leary and other characters in the novel. I highly recommend this book!

    A reviewer

    In Seaboro, South Carolina twelve year old Catherine 'Cappy' Leary plays with the neighbors especially thirteen year old Boyd Loughlin. That is until Boyd¿s two year old brother Sam accidentally dies. Cappy blames herself after overhearing Boyd tells his mother she was watching Sam. At that time she did not know it, but her childhood ended she did believe no good thing will come her way for the negligence death of little Sam.----------- Nine months have passed since her father died, but Catherine has failed to complete his final request. However, her father¿s protégé Forrest Anderson informs her he plans to honor her father in a memorial article he is writing. Catherine fears what he will learn in Seaboro so on her thirtieth birthday she returns to Seaboro for the first time since the tragedy that traumatized her. Her goals are to honor her late father by scattering his ashes as he requested and to prevent Forrest from revealing Leary family secrets though deep down in her soul she would not mind making new secrets with him.---------- BETWEEN THE TIDES is a warm character study of a woman that has spent two-thirds of her life believing her negligence led to the tragic death of infant Sam. and that led her to conclude that she is worthless. Her return to Seaboro to accomplish her two missions provides Cappy with an opportunity for a renewal of her spirit and a second chance to live life to the fullest and not in the shadows. Readers will enjoy this fine tale as the lead protagonist after eighteen years at ebb tide is relearning to enjoy the waves.------- Harriet Klausner

    Good Read

    I like this book but I think the author s stresses too much what happened to this girl many years ago. I can't imagine one's whole life being turned upside down because of an incident in childhood,despite what it was. It seems as though it consumes her every thought. However, it is a good read and I would recommend it.
