Book Review: On a Summer Tide by Suzanne Woods Fisher


Sometimes love hurts--and sometimes it can heal in the most unexpected way.

Camden Grayson loves her challenging career, but the rest of her life could use some improvement. "Moving on" is Cam's mantra. But there's a difference, her two sisters insist, between one who moves on . . . and one who keeps moving. 

Cam's full-throttle life skids to a stop when her father buys a remote island off the coast of Maine. Paul Grayson has a dream to breathe new life into the island--a dream that includes reuniting his estranged daughters. Certain Dad has lost his mind, the three sisters rush to the island. To Cam's surprise, the slow pace of island life appeals to her, along with the locals--and one in particular. Seth Walker, the scruffy island schoolteacher harbors more than a few surprises. 

With On a Summer Tide, bestselling author Suzanne Woods Fisher begins a brand-new contemporary romance series that is sure to delight her fans and draw new ones.


Suzanne Woods Fisher lives with her family in the San Francisco Bay Area.

Suzanne graduated from Westmont College in Santa Barbara, California, and was a free-lancer writer for magazines while her children were growing up. A former contributing editor to Christian Parenting Today, Suzanne’s work has appeared in many magazines, including Today’s Christian Woman, Worldwide Challenge, and Marriage Partnership.
Her first novel, Copper Star, a World War II love story, was published by a small press (Vintage Inspirations) and received three literary awards. It opened the door to a literary agent, Joyce Hart. The agent knew of Suzanne’s connection to the Plain People—her grandfather was raised Plain—and introduced her to an editor at Revell, a division of Baker Books. Amish Peace: Simple Wisdom for a Complicated World was the result of that first conversation. It was an 2010 ECPA Book of the Year finalist…and it is the book Suzanne wants to be buried with.
And that was over thirty books and one million sold copies ago! So it seems things are working out pretty well.

I have been a huge fan of this author since I started reading Christian Fiction books. I was excited to see something a little different from her. In this book, On A Summer Tide brings together a story of family bonds broken and now given the space to heal. Some of this story reminded me of my family and how broken it has been at times. I love the description of coastal Maine. It makes me want to visit. I have 3 sisters. We did not have a great childhood. We all lead very separate lives just like the ones in this book. - I loved the sisters in this book. The author did a great job in creating the characters. They were flawed. They were real. Intriguing storyline. Incredibly well written. I enjoyed this book and look forward to reading more. 

I received a copy of this book through the Revell Blogging program, all thoughts are my own.
