Tide and Tempest is the story of a young Irish immigrant, Tillie McGrath. On her voyage to America, her fiance dies, so she begins building her new life on her own. Two years later, the ship captain Keondric Morgan discovers that the death of Tillie’s fiance was not an accident as previously believed. Keondric feels duty bond to seek out Tillie and tell her the unfortunate news of her fiance’s murder.
Keondric finds Tillie, and in the process, discovers that someone is now trailing Tillie, convinced that she has information given to her by her deceased fiance. Keondric (and his younger brother, Cass) stay on to protect Tillie and try to investigate this mysterious circumstance.
Tide and Tempest was an interesting story that was easy to read. If you are looking for a historical fiction book with just a touch of suspense and a good helping of romance, you will enjoy this latest book by Elizabeth Ludwig.
