What a journey!
I think I have a bit of a book hangover right now. Yesterday’s Tides is an adventure in love and war. Set against the backdrop of world-changing periods, two couples traverse the waters of serving their country in a foreign land while battling their own desires.
Split-time is a difficult subgenre to navigate for some, but let me assure you, Roseanna did a wonderful job in making it very clear whose POV I was in. Evie and Louisa share a special connection but we don’t see it until around halfway through the story, which is nice. I don’t always want to know the connecting arc right away. Their stories are gripping and heartbreaking individually, but when I began to see the connections between them, I thought, “This is brilliant.”
Pilar Witherspoon was amazing, giving me all the feels of Where the Crawdads Sing but with a holier twist. Her vocal articulation between the British and Southern United States is amazing and soothing to listen to.
This story was beautiful in writing and in telling. Roseanna M. White and Pilar Witherspoon make a great team in storytelling.

In two world wars, intelligence and counterintelligence, prejudice, and self-sacrifice collide across two generations
In 1942, Evie Farrow is used to life on Ocracoke Island, where every day is the same–until the German U-boats haunting their waters begin to wreak havoc. And when special agent Sterling Bertrand is washed ashore at Evie’s inn, her life is turned upside down. While Sterling’s injuries keep him inn-bound for weeks, making him even more anxious about the SS officer he’s tracking, he becomes increasingly intrigued by Evie, who seems to be hiding secrets of her own.
Decades earlier, in 1914, Englishman Remington Culbreth arrives at the Ocracoke Inn for the summer, never expecting to fall in love with Louisa Adair, the innkeeper’s daughter. But when war breaks out in Europe, their relationship is put in jeopardy and may not survive what lies ahead for them.
As the ripples from the Great War rock Evie and Sterling’s lives in World War II, it seems yesterday’s tides may sweep them all into danger again today.
