Praise for The Tides Between

“Many people can write a beautiful sentence and many people can even write a beautiful paragraph but when you find someone who has a sense of story that is unique. In The Tides Between, Elizabeth Jane Corbett imbues that sense of beautiful writing and sense of story with emotion and universal meaning.” Alison Goodman New York Times Bestselling author of Eon and Eona.

“In historical novels the details of setting and daily life can sometimes seem embroidered on to the fabric of the narrative. In ‘The Tides Between’, Elizabeth Jane Corbett knows how to wear her research lightly, so that it feels almost like reading fiction set in a known time and place.” Maria Donovan, author of The Chicken Soup Murder

*

“The Tides Between seamlessly weaves mythic storytelling and compelling characters through the riveting drama of a 19th century sea voyage. Elizabeth Jane Corbett’s lyrical turns of phrase are underpinned by meticulous research and burning emotion.” Euan Mitchell PhD, bestselling author of Feral Tracks and Your Publishing Options

*

“The Tides Between pulls the reader in two directions, the desire to continue turning the pages at odds with an equally a strong wish to pause and reflect on its various intricacies, its depth.” Isobel Blackthorn, author of The Drago Tree

*

“The Tides Between is a novel in the tradition of a grand adventure, a true coming of age story that leaves the reader pining for more, yet deeply satisfied at the same time. The flowing narrative that combines fact with legends and fairy tales is at once engaging while the inclusion of words and verse in Welsh adds greatly to the atmosphere.” Theresa Smith writes

“Thoroughly engaging and enjoyable weaving together of myth with life, without one subsuming the other. Hints of romance, myth and magic, within a story of overcoming the hurt of living.” Amazon

“This could only have been written by someone who understands Welsh culture and has learnt Welsh. Bendigedig!” Amazon

*

“A truly wonderful book whose incredibly vivid main characters will stay with you.” Amazon

*

“More than a coming of age story for Bridie, it’s a story of redemption. A story of hope. A story of grief and healing. And even a call to remember that magic is not just for fairytales.” Pursuing Stacie

*

“What is interesting is how she layered it dimensionally – of how the book moves in and out of the real world and into an ‘elsewhere’ place which has a strong connection and realism of its own.” Jorie Loves a Story

*

“It’s about secrets, the past coming to haunt, memories, friendship, redemption, and the use of fairytales to help forget the present and sometimes the past.”         The Singing Librarian

*

“Ms Corbett brings her characters to life amidst the difficulties imposed by the close confines of travel in steerage. There are interesting backstories to learn, there are Welsh fairy tales to consider, and there is tragedy.” Amazon

*

“A wonderful book for all ages. It has layers of meaning and could be read more than once, a new lesson becoming clear each time. I hope for sequels!” Amazon

*

“A lovely captivating story, beautifully written. Well formed characters and descriptions of life aboard a sailing ship from England to Australia, superbly intertwined with Welsh myths and legends. Fully deserves 5 stars.” Amazon

*

“Fairy tales aren’t nonsense…they help us understand our lives.” Ms. Corbett conveys that truth so well through her own story!” Faery Tales are Real

*

The words of The Tides Between flow smoothly and have a cadence all their own.  Seriously, it’s prose but it reads like poetry.  The best of both worlds perhaps?     Back Porchervations

*
