Publisher's Description

Two years ago, her fiance perished
during their voyage to America.

Now she discovers it may have been murder...

Dreaming of a better life, Tillie McGrath leaves Ireland behind and, with her beloved fiance by her side, sets sail for America. But when illness robs her of the man she holds dear, she's left alone with only a handful of tattered memories. While forging on proves difficult, Tillie soon finds some new friends at her New York boardinghouse, and begins pursuing a new dream--to open a home for orphaned children.

Despite two years passing, Captain Keondric Morgan has never forgotten the lass who left his ship so heartbroken. When a crewman's deathbed confession reveals her fiance's demise was the result of murder, the captain knows he must try to contact her. But his attention draws the notice of others as well--dangerous men who believe Tillie has in her possession something that could expose their crimes. And to their way of thinking, the best way to prevent such an outcome is to seize the evidence and then hand Tillie the same fate as her naïve fiance.

    This review was written for Tide and Tempest, Edge of Freedom Series #3.
    Tide and Tempest is the third and final book to the Edge of Freedom Series. Having read the previous installments I was eagerly anticipating this release to conclude my journey with these set of characters. Because the story plot and characters are intertwined I would recommend for you to read each book in order.

    The author kept the reader thoroughly engaged throughout the story. The many plot twists, heart racing, and unpredictable moments kept you turning the pages faster and faster trying to keep up. I thoroughly enjoyed the fact that the book was not too predictable, and many a time I was completely thrown off course. The author kept the story plot fresh and exciting even though it was a third book in a series.

    The only drawback to this wonderful series was that the author portrayed the characters as Catholics without ever showing a conversion.

    I received a complimentary copy, from CFBA in exchange for this independent and unbiased review.

    This review was written for Tide and Tempest, Edge of Freedom Series #3.
    Tide and Tempest by Elizabeth Ludwig is the third book in her Edge of Freedom series and I was thrilled to continue on with the stories of the boarding house's next member after falling in love with the intertwined tales of Ana, Cara, and Eoghan in the early stories.

    I really appreciate how carefully Ludig works to build her worlds and keep her characters intersecting through natural story points which flow out of the overarching plot and am amazed when seemingly coincidental encounters from earlier tales turn out to be major plot drivers an entire novel later! To have this level of foresight (or the ability to tie back) definitely increased my enjoyment of the plot and Ludwig's storytelling capabilities.

    In the second novel, readers are briefly introduced to Tillie McGrath, Tide and Tempest's heroine, a sad woman in the midst of rebuilding her life after loosing her fiance and delivering their stillborn child. As a result my interest was already piqued when I opened up book number 3 found Tillie's journey to and from the boarding house to be our next focus.

    When I first started Ludwig's series Tillie was the one woman I wished I could find out more about, the grieving woman, the quiet woman, and Ludwig does not disappoint. While staying true to the overarching plot with the Fenian's and The Celt, Ludwig still crafts a beautiful story of mercy, forgiveness, and love for young Tillie.

    I found, in a lot of ways, Tillie has been the character over the series to show the most growth and wonder if this is a reflection of Ludwig's on growth over the series as an author?

    Tide and Tempest does have a more complete feel than it's predecessors, possibly due to story line completions, but their was an equal though more subtle maturation in the writing itself which adds to the ease of reading.

    Overall, as much as I loved Ludwig's early work, Tide and Tempest has become a new favourite and I'd highly recommend it to fans of the genre.

    I received a copy of this book in exchange for my honest review.

    This review was written for Tide and Tempest, Edge of Freedom Series #3.
    When I first selected this book, I didn't realize it was part of a series and I had ended up selecting book three. So, for the longest time I put off reading the book. The thrill was gone, because from past experience, books in a series is merely a continuation of the previous. Usually they tie in together and if you haven't read the previous books, then you are lost. But finally, deciding enough time had passed I picked it up and began to read. And then I couldn't stop. Despite this being a third book, and there were a few mentions of previous characters, the book was quite interesting. The previous story wasn't necessary, although it may have been helpful. Essentially it carried itself.

    It was intriguing, the plot for me carried along well, and it kept me interested to know what happens around the next corner, or in this case, chapter. The story wasn't overly predictive, there were times where I was surprised in the outcome of an event, and to me, that is a well written book. I found that I was transported to that time and place, and could feel the sweat or the pounding of the fists.

    The only thing that I thought could use some work was the back cover. It was accurate, but it really and truly didn't tell the story about what happened between the pages of the book. The orphanage of Tillie's was not hardly worth a mention on the back. It did play a part, in an roundabout way. The story was so much deeper and more involved.

    That said, this is a great book and I'd willingly recommend it to others to read. Don't worry about it being out of sequence from the previous two books, it stands on it's own.

    I received this book from Bethany House Publishers for my honest review. I did not receive any other compensation and all thoughts and opinions are strictly my own.

    Time and Tempest

    Edge of Freedom Book 3

    By Elizabeth Ludwig

    Two years have passed since Tillie McGrath lost her fiance, Braedon on the journey to America. But the past and all its pain come back when Captain Keondric Morgan comes to the boardinghouse where she's staying. Tillie and Morgan are in danger because of Braedon's death. But what does Braedon's death have to do with his ties with the Fenians? And why the danger?

    Keondric Morgan has just discovered the truth about the death of Braedon McKillop. And what he has discovered concerns him, because it means Braedon's young fiance could be the next to die. For some reason Tillie has been on Morgan's mind and he can't get her out of it. But he has responsibilities and Tillie is so much younger than him

    Tillie is equally drawn to Morgan, but she refuses to acknowledge it. She doesn't deserve happiness after what she's done. And she has an orphanage to start if she can get the money together.

    Keondric and Tillie's story is one of letting go of the guilt of the past and embracing the forgiveness that God so freely offers. Both are offered second chances if they are willing to take the risk and accept what is being offered.

    I haven't read the first two books in this series, so I don't think one has to read them. But the references made about other characters has made me want to read the first two books. Time and Tempest is set at the turn of the century (19th into 20th) in New York City. I found this to be an enjoyable and enlightening book. The history of the struggle for Irish independence and its links to America are interesting and are fodder for research into Fenians and their struggles.

    I was provided a copy of this book by the publisher Bethany House in exchange for my honest review.

    This review was written for Tide and Tempest, Edge of Freedom Series #3.
    I have had the privilege of reading all three of Elizabeth Ludwig's books in her Edge of Freedom series, and I have immensely enjoyed each one. This third (and I believe final) book in the series brought everything together in a nice package.

    Tillie McGrath didn't know what she was getting into when she left Ireland to travel to America with her fiance, Braedon. But when Braedon dies aboard the ship, along with her unborn child, Tillie finds herself trying to make a way for herself in an unknown country.

    Captain Morgan, who brought Tillie across the ocean, believes that he is responsible for Tillie's care - especially when he finds out that her fiance was murdered on his ship.

    How is Tillie tied in with the Fenians? Will Captain Morgan be able to protect her? And will Tillie ever find love again?

    Elizabeth Ludwig does a wonderful job of drawing the reader into her stories. I enjoyed meeting the same characters each time and finding out how they were all connected. And there is a definite tone of repentance and grace throughout her books.

    I hope to read more from Ludwig in the future.
