The House Between Tides

81yQPYA0JhL.jpgI almost gave up on The House Between Tides, as it hit a lull in the middle, which I didn’t want to push through with my stack of to-be-reads towering higher by the day, but I am glad I didn’t abandon ship. Hetty inherits a house in the Scottish Highlands only reachable at low-tide. With it, is discovered a mysterious dead body. The book switches back and forth from the home’s owner, painter, Theo Blake in 1910, to Hetty in 2010. Blake’s complicated history is the main story, but Hetty’s becomes interesting as well. The pace picked up significantly in the last 100 pages, finally culminating in somewhat of a surprise ending. So, at the last, I am glad I read it and would recommend it.
