Review: On a Summer Tide by Suzanne Woods Fisher

On a Summer Tide by Suzanne Woods Fisher

Camden Grayson and her sisters Maddie and Blaine were curious why their father had called them together. When he told them, they were shocked. Of all things, he had sold the house and bought an island! Three Sisters Island, indeed. What was going on with him? Was it a delayed reaction after their mother’s death?

Paul Grayson insisted he was well and that he wanted his daughters to be a part of it of this dream he had shared with their mother. So the girls headed down to check out the island: Camden, an overscheduled businesswoman with her adopted seven-year-old son Cooper, Maddie, an almost-qualified therapist looking for a place to intern, and Blaine, a drifting student addicted to her cellphone.

The island turned out to be worse—and better—than expected. The people were certainly interesting, from the terrible cook who ran the diner to the mayor’s deadbeat sons and the outdoorsy schoolteacher. And, as life unfolded for the girls and Cooper, the island turned out to be a blessing to them all in surprising ways.

Even go-getter Camden began to feel peaceful about her new life but then she was faced with a revelation that shocked her to the core. Could she forgive this?

Suzanne Woods Fisher has written a gentle novel of family ties, reconciliation, and coming to terms with the past. More than that, it is a novel of understanding God’s forgiveness and learning to model it.

If you have time for a pleasant excursion to a distant island, I think you will enjoy On a Summer Tide.
