About the Book
When Meg Whitaker’s father decides to sell the family’s lobster-fishing business to her high school nemesis, she sets out to prove she should inherit it instead. Though she’s never had any interest in running the small fleet–or even getting on a boat due to her persistent seasickness–she can’t stand to see Oliver Ross take over. Not when he ruined her dreams for a science scholarship and an Ivy League education ten years ago.
Oliver isn’t proud of what he did back then. Angry and broken by his father walking out on his family, he lashed out at Meg–an innocent bystander. But owning a respected fishing fleet on Prince Edward Island is the opportunity of a lifetime, and he’s not about to walk away just because Meg wants him to.
Meg’s father has the perfect solution: Oliver and Meg must work the business together, and at the end of the season, he’ll decide who gets it. Along the way, they may discover that their stories are more similar than they thought . . . and their dreams aren’t what they expected.
Bestselling author Liz Johnson invites you back to Prince Edward Island for a brand-new series about family, forgiveness, and the kind of love that heals all wounds.
In My Opinion
Liz Johnson returns readers to Prince Edward Island in Beyond the Tides. The setting is as much a part of this book as the characters.
Meg and Oliver have a complicated past. One which has caused Meg to hold a grudge. So, when they try to work together, plenty of emotions rise to the surface (especially when you consider the upheaval happening in Meg’s family).
I appreciated how these two characters went from nemeses to friends to something more, and the themes of forgiveness, seeking out moments of joy, and family are well developed as the story unfolds. Readers also get a bit of an education about lobster fishing. I’m excited to see what Johnson has up her sleeve for the next book in this series.
