Oh. My. Goodness. That was, without a doubt, the most wonderful, amazing, precious, book EVER! To the point where I cried happy tears 'cause of just how beautiful it was. I'm . . . not sure I've ever cried over happiness in a book before. It was utterly AMAZING!Full review to come later. When I can think clearly again. Okay, full review now. And I'm just going to point out at the beginning that while I'm doing my best to keep this review to a moderate length . . . that may not actually work. xDW [...]
Original Review Back in March:I have no words. *sobs, laughs, smiles, etc.* It can't be over, can it?! I just can't be and yet it is. I'm honestly a little disappointed but that's just because I want there to be more, not because this isn't the most amazing book ever. Because this book wow. It's so good! Real review coming soon. :)Thoughts Now:Um it has been too long to write a review. *bows* BUT IT WAS GOOD.
What a delightful book! I liked Tess's determination to become a better version of herself and to be the sort of person who people respected. I liked how she wanted to help find out who was sabotaging Yvette's French group's plans for freedom, and enjoyed the guessing that went on with that story, as she helps find the traitor(s) in the group and stop the leaking of info to Nazis. The romance was great, too. I'm really picky over what I term a "great" romance, but this one is authentic and so sw [...]
Full review coming later, but for now I'll just say that I haven't read a 5-star Christian novel in practically forever, but I'm happy to hand out all the stars here. THIS ONE WAS JUST SO DARN CUTE.UPDATE:Y'all know I love a good Sarah Sundin book. I'm not generally the type for novels that are more on the romance-y side (I tend to like romantic mushy-ness as a subtle side dish rather than a main course) but her books are the exception. I loved the first book in this series, but didn't care for [...]
I have so enjoyed this series by Sarah Sundin and, while I’m sad to see it end, When Tides Turn is a great sendoff. The history incorporated seamlessly into the story continues to intrigue me.And the romance… I have to admit, from the past two books, Tess has not been my favorite character. But she completely redeems herself in When Tides Turn. I love the color she adds to Dan’s life, and the way she upends his best efforts to maintain a cordial distance. Dan’s journey through the novel [...]
I have enjoyed the entire Waves of Freedom series, and When Tides Turn is an excellent addition to it. If you have not read the series, I believe you can still enjoy When Tides Turn. However, I really liked catching up with the previous couples from books one and two in this story and seeing what was going on in their lives.Tess was definitely not a favorite of mine when she appeared in the previous books, but I couldn’t help but love her in this novel! When Tides Turn is packed with interesti [...]
We are back with the Avery family, and how I love being with them and catching up with all of their lives. With this book we are right in the heart of battle in WWII, and watching the war turn before our very eyes.This is also Tess’s story and what a heroine she is, but as tough as she is, she is still quite fragile, and yet she is ready to give her life for a friend. Will she be able over come her fears and open her heart to a bit of romance and love?Then there is Dan Avery and his fear of co [...]
Turning the final page with a big, sappy grin and a deep sigh Sarah does it once again! Read my full review at amydrown/review-when-t
When Tides Turn is the culmination of my favorite series of Sarah's. It has mystery, romance, a tiny touch of suspense, and a cast that just won't let me go. There's realism of the war and what it was like on the homefront. There's so much in the book that makes it feel like a smorgasborg of perfection. All my favorite elements are included and I closed the book with such a happy sigh. Sarah is one of those writers who truly gets better with each book.If you love World War II, historicals, and a [...]
I have adored this series since the very beginning of Through Waters Deep. So, I was very much looking forward to this third book! Quite honestly I really didn't like Quintessa very much in the two previous books and I did find myself feeling a tad skeptical that she would ever grow on me, I needn't have worried, in Sarah Sundin's masterful hands Tess became a fantastic heroine that I very much liked and was rooting for from the start of her story! It was great getting to know Dan, we have only [...]
Oh, I absolutely loved it! My favourite one of the series! I loved the romance (no-nonsense Dan and spirited Tess made an adorable couple), the naval history, the mystery, everything about it5 + stars!
I really enjoyed When Tides Turn. I was a bit lost with the story at times, partly because I had a hard time remembering the previous books and who everyone was/what all happened before, but that didn't stop me from finding the book intriguing to read and fun!I loved the little nuggets of real history that I learned throughout the story (especially WAVES). Sarah Sundin does a fantastic job of weaver facts and fiction, to where you feel like the entire story is real. I love that! Also, I loved th [...]
Such a beautiful story! It was interesting and educational. I love how the author pulled in situations and people of World War II along with her fictional characters. It gave the story a very authentic feel.Tessa was great. I met her in book one and she came across as a spoiled brat. However, in book three she shows she truly is a woman of character and depth. The storyline of her fighting to be “more than a pretty face” was excellent.Dan was priceless! A man of strong integrity that believe [...]
I will admit that I hesitated in requesting this for review. I haven't read the rest of the series and I worried that it might make this one hard to get into. The first fourth of the book was a little slow for me, as many characters were mentioned from the last two books, but as the story neared the middle I was hooked.I loved the message of this book. The little tid-bits of lessons from the Bible was so good, perfect in Dan and Tess's life as they stayed served in the Navy. Dan got on my nerves [...]
rtbookreviews/book-reThe third and final novel in Sundin's Waves of Freedom series immerses readers in 1942 wartime Boston. Quintessa is a fascinating character, and everything about the developing romance between her and Dan is realistic, heartwarming and humorous. Tess' ability to make light of a situation is the perfect balance to Dan's stodgy behavior. Sundin's research is stellar; the information and detail about the Navy and the WAVES during this time period is thoroughly engrossing.Quinte [...]
I would like to start off this review by saying I discovered something about writing styles in relation to myself when I was having a conversation with a friend the other day. She said there are three main story telling styles. Character driven stories, plot driven stories, and theme driven stories. When she told me that I was able to identify why some books really stick with me and others leave me with more of a ‘meh’ reaction. My favorites are character driven stories, a close second being [...]
Though it seems impossible given how much I loved the first book in the series, I just might like When Tides Turn a smidgen more. Both are spectacular. Once again, Sundin takes us deep into the historical details of the war, with fun and engaging characters to guide us. After a recent weekend playing the boardgame Axis and Allies, I found the battles more interesting than usual, and I was picturing the movements of the various ships and u-boats on the giant world map as I read.Dan is the best--h [...]
Another exciting World War Two story by this wonderful author! This third book in the Waves of Freedom series is set mainly in Boston from mid-1942 to 1943, coupled with plenty of action in the Atlantic and beyond, as the naval battles escalated. It was easy to read as a stand alone, picking up where the other books left off, with some returning characters.Love how this author's books are so well-researched, giving just enough information to make it interesting and visualize the scenes, but neve [...]
The Waves of Freedom Series included the welcome addition of a mystery to each of the novels. In When Tides Turn, we get Tess and Dan's story. Tess is known only for her beauty and not her substance. Dan is 100% focused on his work and nothing else. Their characters were likable and showed good development throughout the story.The author does a spectacular job with research and incorporated actual events and names into this story. The detail at sea didn't keep my interest, but I enjoyed all the [...]
First of all, I want to thank Sarah Sundin for holding the giveaway in which I won this book! I was so excited when I got the message from her! I couldn’t wait to read the newest book by her. When the book arrived in my mail box, I couldn’t wait to begin reading it. Then, it was time for my spring break. And, for this year’s spring break, my sisters, Mom, and I traveled 700 miles to our destination. And then 700 miles back. That is when I read one of my newest favorite books—When Tides T [...]
Full review on Faithfully Bookish wp/p7ngfE-GqAhoy there! It's the conclusion of the Waves of Freedom series and a fitting finale for these WWII Navy men and women readers have grown to love!Although she occasionally came across as a bit silly in the previous two books, Quintessa is determined to be more than just a pretty face. Tess is a good girl, she's naturally inclined to follow the rules and shower others compassion and encouragement. Dan has been an all work and no play kind of man since [...]
When Tides Turn is book three from the Waves of Freedom series. I enjoyed this book and getting a glimpse of the WAVES during WWII. I personally was excited to read the parts set in Northern Ireland, where my grandparents met and married my American grandfather was stationed there. This is my favorite of the series.5 stars.
Wow! What an amazing book! It obviously didn't affect me as much as it would if I had read the other two books in the series, but it still touched me and I still loved it!!! Now I DEFINITELY have to read the others in the series!!!
Review coming tomorrow. :)
When Tess Beaumont learns that the career goal she has been working toward for the last ten months is fruitless, she decides to change her course and make a difference in WWII by joining the new women’s program in the Navy called the WAVES. She hopes the distance and the rules against marrying a fellow Naval officer will help her forget her attraction to Lt. Dan Avery, but her hopes are in vain when he is ordered to become her commanding officer. However, Dan might be just what Tess needs to h [...]
This whole series is amazing! I think book 2 is still my favorite, and this book (book 3) started a little slower than the others, but it was still amazing. It was really interesting learning about the WAVES and ways that women aided the war effort in WWII. And the last chapter of this book was simply adorable!My only real complaint about this book is that it is the last one! I'm not ready to stop reading about the Avery family and their friends. Especially since this book ends in 1943, so I kno [...]
I enjoyed this final book in the Waves of Freedom series. We finally get Dan & Quintessa's story! :) Quintessa (Tess) has gone through a lot of change since we first met her in Book 1 (Through Waters Deep). Thankfully, she has done some maturing and is determined to prove that she's not just a pretty face. And then there is Dan who has locked his feelings away for so long, he has a hard time loosening up! When these two start to fall in love, they each have to learn to let go of pre-conceive [...]
Oh, my word. Ms. Sundin's books just get better and better and better. I absolutely one hundred percent fell madly in love with Dan and Tess. WHEN TIDES TURNED held me spellbound all the way through from start to finish and it was so hard to put it down to do what I had to d0. Dan is a bit of a stick in the mud. Steadfast. Solid. Dependable. Set on the course and no deviation. And then there is Tess. A beautiful golden girl who totally captivated Dan, and even though he fought it he couldn't res [...]
