Tide and Tempest
Edge of Freedom Book 3
By Elizabeth Ludwig
Two years have passed since Tillie McGrath lost her fiance, Braedon on the journey to America. But the past and all its pain come back when Captain Keondric Morgan comes to the boardinghouse where she's staying. Tillie and Morgan are in danger because of Braedon's death. But what does Braedon's death have to do with his ties with the Fenians? And why the danger?
Keondric Morgan has just discovered the truth about the death of Braedon McKillop. And what he has discovered concerns him, because it means Braedon's young fiance could be the next to die. For some reason Tillie has been on Morgan's mind and he can't get her out of it. But he has responsibilities and Tillie is so much younger than him
Tillie is equally drawn to Morgan, but she refuses to acknowledge it. She doesn't deserve happiness after what she's done. And she has an orphanage to start if she can get the money together.
Keondric and Tillie's story is one of letting go of the guilt of the past and embracing the forgiveness that God so freely offers. Both are offered second chances if they are willing to take the risk and accept what is being offered.
I haven't read the first two books in this series, so I don't think one has to read them. But the references made about other characters has made me want to read the first two books. Time and Tempest is set at the turn of the century (19th into 20th) in New York City. I found this to be an enjoyable and enlightening book. The history of the struggle for Irish independence and its links to America are interesting and are fodder for research into Fenians and their struggles.
I was provided a copy of this book by the publisher Bethany House in exchange for my honest review.
