As the Tide Comes In Book Review

I got this book on my reserve shelf and I was excited to see what it was about.  As the Tide Comes In: A Novel by Cindy Woodsmall and Erin Woodsmall was a great book at the top of the pile and I was excited to see that it wasn't a part of another series.  I love finding more books to read and this one was a great one.

When an unthinkable loss sends Tara Abbott's life spiraling out of control, she journeys from North Carolina to Georgia's St. Simons Island. Although confused and scared, she hopes to find answers about her past - her life before the years of foster care and raising her two half-brothers as a young adult. Will she find steady ground on the island, surrounded by an eccentric-but-kindhearted group of older women called The Glynn Girls and a determined firefighter? Or will the truth splinter what's left of her identity into pieces?

Tara Abbott lived in foster homes and grew up to make friends that were like her family.  She has made a life with her jobs and rock climbing community.  She travels to see her half brothers grandmother who tells her that she is dying.  The grandmother wants Tara to take over raising "her boys" at the age of 18 because there is no one else to raise them.  She was hesitant to step into the roll but quickly changes her mind when she realizes how kind they are and how tough foster care living was for her childhood.  It was an amazing story of love of a family that had you quickly start pulling for Tara.  She gets into an accident and then looses everything in her life as well as her grip on reality.  She takes a trip to Georgia and meets local women and becomes part of the small town.  You have to pick up the book to find out what happens when she confuses a house there with her house at home and looses time so things get a little crazy.  I hope that you check out this book because it was an amazing story and I know that you will like it as much as I did.  It makes you appreciate your family and life after reading this story.
