Turning Tide
As the Great War rages on, Sunset Cove continues to feel its impact. Running the small town newspaper, Anna McDowell can’t escape the grim reports from the other side of the world, but home-front challenges abound as well. Dr. Daniel is serving the wounded on the front lines. And Katy, expecting her first child, with her husband in the trenches, tries to support the war effort with her Red Cross club. Even as the war winds down the costs are high—and Sunset Cove is not spared.

About the Author

author photo Melody Carlson (1)
Melody Carlson has written more than 200 books (with sales around 6.5 million) for teens, women, and children. That’s a lot of books, but mostly she considers herself a “storyteller.” Her young adult novels (Diary of a Teenage Girl, True Colors etc.) appeal to teenage girls around the world. Her annual Christmas novellas become more popular each year. She’s won a number of awards (including RT’s Career Achievement Award, the Rita, and the Gold medallion) and some of her books have been optioned for film/TV. Carlson has two grown sons and makes her home in the Pacific Northwest with her husband and yellow Lab dog.

More from Melody

Writing about the WW1 era has definitely been a good history lesson for me. Prohibition laws in Oregon (and rum-runners breaking them) combined with a massive war that changed the world and a global epidemic is worth paying attention to. Especially since history sometimes repeats itself. The early 20th century had a lot going on—much that seems nearly forgotten. I’m glad to see the movie 1917 is doing well—and we plan to see it this week. Although I’m not a fan of gruesome war movies, this era continues to intrigue me. Even as I wrapped up my Sunset Cove series with Turning Tide I was left wondering . . . what’s next? But isn’t that the beauty of story?

My Review


This is my fourth visit to Sunset Cove, and am hoping it won't be the last!
Now if you are picking up this series for the first time, there is a lot of back information provided, and you should be able to continue the story.
As the story opens most of our female characters have their loved ones either in or on the way to fight in the Great War, and we experience life with them gone.
While we deal with WWI I could see the affects of all of our previous wars had on our young men, and yet from here life repeats itself.
While a lot of this story is wrapped up in this book, I've come to love the characters here, and I would love more! You will find your answers here, and some are hard, but the author has done a wonderful attention grabbing job with all of these books!

I received this book through Celebrate Lit, and was not required to give a positive review.
