Rising Tides by Nora Roberts
Rising Tides is the second book in the Chesapeake Bay Saga by Nora Roberts. In typical Nora Roberts fashion there is a lot of drama and very interesting dialogue. Roberts is truly an artist with words. The vivid descriptions of people, locations, and ideas makes it possible for me to smell the sea breeze that is blowing and feel the fear of a 10 year old boy.
Rising Tides, and the entire Chesapeake Bay Saga series, are not as suspenseful as some of the stand-alone work by Roberts. However, it is an inspirational tale of rising from the rubble and learning to thrive and flourish while navigating the trials of today. The relationships are the key component of this book (fathers and sons, brothers, and lovers). As always, Roberts offers a compelling story about love, loss, heart break, and having the courage to try again.
Rating: *** out of five stars
