About the Book

July 2, 2005

The canvas painting on the wall called to Tara as she walked back into the kitchen, this time her arms filled with rock-climbing gear.

I am very excited to read this book. I have enjoyed the few Cindy Woodsmall novels that I have read. And, I adored The Gift of Christmas Past, another novel she co-wrote with Erin. As the Tide Comes In looks to be quite the emotional roller-coaster. If it’s anything like The Gift of Christmas Past, I know this will be a wonderful read. I can’t wait!!!


NOW IT IS YOUR TURN! GRAB THE BOOK YOU ARE CURRENTLY READING, OPEN TO CHAPTER ONE, AND POST THE FIRST SENTENCE (OR SECOND SENTENCE) IN THE COMMENTS BELOW. THEN HEAD ON OVER TO HOARDING BOOKS TO SEE ALL OF THE FLF PAGES THIS WEEK (JUST CLICK ON THE FLF BUTTON BELOW).

    That’s a lovely cover. I hope you enjoy the book. Let me share the first line of the book I’m currently reading instead. This one is from Suzanne Rindell’s “Eagle and Crane”

    “They bump along the country road, rolling though golden hills that are punctuated with granite boulders and dotted with clusters of oak trees that appear blackish green from afar.”

    Have a happy weekend! 😀

    I have that book scheduled for later this summer. Here’s the first line from the next book in my TBR pile — A Rebel Heart by Beth White. “Selah could hear the horses thundering closer, oncoming hell and destruction.” Happy Friday!

    The book I’m featuring on my blog is “The Country House Courtship” by Linore Rose Burkard. Since I’m still reading this novel, I will share the first line in Chapter Seventeen here. “Mrs. Royleforst finally made her public entrance among the guests after taking breakfast in her room and spending much of the day abed.” Wishing you a wonderful weekend!

    I love the cover! I’ve read a few Cindy Woodsmall books too but not this one yet.
    The book I’m sharing this week is Jane Eyre by Charlotte Bronte but I’ll share here the book I’m currently reading which is Blind Spot by Dani Pettrey: “Luke crouched behind an orange shipping container, dreading to think what it held. Have a great weekend and happy reading!

    Happy Friday! My first line is from Light My Fire by Susan May Warren:

    “His knee had turned into a melon, achy and soft, and Tucker Newman’s entire body throbbed, right down to the marrow.”
