Between the Tides by Patti Callahan Henry

Between the Tides
Patti Callahan Henry
June, 2007

First and foremost a BIG THANK YOU to Softdrink for sending me this beautiful book. Patti Callahan Henry’s Between the Tides is an amazing story of self realization and of love.

Nature and books belong to the eyes that see them.

How True, right?

I loved this book, and it is one book that I don’t want to let go and give off to someone else.
The best thing I loved about this book is that each chapter starts with a famous saying such as the above and they are all so true and beautiful.
Though it was a little predictable for me, but I loved the way the story was told, revealing bit by bit just like unraveling a secret kept for years, just like arousing the feelings suppressed for years; just like finding those tears, that had dried years before.

Patti Callahan Henry has beautifully sketched the place where she wanted her main protagonist to live, and you can see its beauty through the words that bring it to life.

This is the story of a women who believed that she had done a big sin when she was a young little girl and lived with the guilt of it till her father, her mentor dies and asks her 3 simple questions through a letter he gives to his trusted friend and student. She on the journey of answering these questions goes back to the place where she belonged and finds out about things that she had never known.

I hope you guys read this book :)

Thanks again SoftDrink :)

PS- I love the book cover and that's the reason for a larger image :)
