Dora has just found out she’s pregnant and she’s terrified about becoming a Mum - with good reason. She feels responsible for a tragedy that happened within her family years ago - a tragedy that left her mother cold and remote, drove away her father and all but destroyed her sister. Before she can feel confident about having her baby, Dora needs to reconcile with her family and understand the events of that terrible day. This is a brilliant novel, gripping, shocking, and will ensure any middle aged lady contemplating an affair will never entertain such a notion again.

This sounds like a FANTASTIC read - I am about to head off on a girlie weekend with my mum, I think i'll pop into Paper Plus tommorow and suprise my mum with a copy. Of course i'll be getting my mitts on it as soon as she is finished!!

As much as I don't like to admit it, the last book I picked up and fully read was atleast 10+ years ago!! I tend to flick through magazines now but have been waiting for just the right book to catch my eye - and thanks to Kerre's review, I think I've found it! Thank you for awakening the bookworm in me :)

This book review appeals to me but not available online now, so I will go to the local shop tomorrow for my copy.

This book sounds intriguing - based on female relationships within a family. I'll put it on my 'To Read' list.

Secrets of the Tides

I have just read this book, couldn't put it down. Although the author chose to vary chapters between present day and history, there was continuity and easy reading. A spellbinding story which had a few surprise twists and turns, and even now I am left wondering what would eventuate in a sequel. Hannah Richell is a great writer, definitely recommend this one.

Secrets Of The Tides

The Tides are a family torn apart by tragedy and distrust. The story follows the paths of the family members as they slowly put aside their hurts and reconcile with a semblence of tolerance and in some cases friendship. I really enjoyed this book and so have everyone I've lent it to.

I loved this book, traces the family history with all the scandals and tragedies that have affected family members over the years. Fast moving highly readable, sad funny but very real.
