She has nothing to live for in the present, but finds there's something worth dying for in the past.
From Tiffany Reisz, the international bestselling storyteller behind The Bourbon Thief and The Original Sinners series, comes an enthralling new novel about a woman swept away by the tides who awakens to find herself in 1921, reunited with the husband she's been mourning for four years. Fans of Kate Morton and Diana Gabaldon will fall in love with the mystery, romance, and beauty of an isolated South Carolina lighthouse, where a power greater than love works its magic.

Tiffany is one author that I know will bring her “A” game to her books. Her stories are captivating and witty. My favorite by her is the Bourbon Thief. That book was consuming and flawless. When I saw this one was available I jumped at the chance to read it. I don’t usually go for the historical romance or even time travel books but this one spoke to me.
The story jumps between 2015 and 1921. I didn’t really have any issues with that part of the book and the story premise was solid. I fell into some problems with what I felt was a lack of chemistry between Faye and Carrick. It was just to luke warm for my taste. There was also lots of questions and very few answers. It felt a bit overwhelming at times. Also, a bit different for a Tiffany book with all the detail that was given. I need to be shown more and not told so much, if you know what I mean.
All in all I semi enjoyed this. It won’t be my favorite Tiffany book but I liked it for what it was. If you like historical with a side of mystery then I suggest you go ahead and give this one a shot.
