On a summer tide


Suzanne Woods Fisher








305 pages


Having read and enjoyed many of Suzanne Fisher’s Amish stories, this was a different type of tale totally but a delightful one. Paul Grayson has a desire to revitalize the island of his dreams where he long ago met his wife, now deceased. That plan includes his three daughters, Cam, Maddie and Blaine, thus the renaming of the island to Three Sisters. Of course, part of his plan is to reunite his estranged daughters.

This first story in the series concentrates on Camden with a challenging career and raising an adoptive son on her own. Surprisingly the slower pace of the island begins to appeal to her as well as to her needy son, Cooper. And the presence of Seth Walker, the island schoolteacher, is definitely not a detriment to her feelings. 

The author has stated in an interview that in each of her books she hopes the readers will simply invite God into the conversation of their lives. She has accomplished that nicely in On a summer tide.
