Publisher's Description

A Heartwarming Tale of Courage and Love from Amish Fiction's #1 Author

When a well-to-do family asks Sallie Riehl to be their daughter's nanny for the summer at their Cape May, New Jersey, vacation home, she jumps at the chance to broaden her horizons beyond the Lancaster County Amish community where she grew up. Sallie has long dreamed of seeing more of the world, but her parents are reluctant for her to put off baptism yet another summer, and the timing is unfortunate for Perry Zook, who has renewed interest in courting her.

Though she loves nannying, Sallie has free time on the weekends to enjoy the shore. It is there that she meets Kevin Kreider, a marine biology student who talks freely about all he's learning and asks about her interests, unlike most of the guys she grew up with. Time with Kevin is invigorating, and Sallie realizes she's never felt quite this alive around Perry. Then again, Kevin is Mennonite, not Amish.

Sallie tries to brush aside her growing feelings for Kevin, but she fears what her parents would think about her new friendship. Just as concerning, however, is Sallie's realization that her time in Cape May is increasing her desire to see the world, challenging her plans for the future. Has she been too hasty with her promises, or will Sallie only find what her heart is longing for back home in Paradise Township?

    I don't know how Beverly Lewis keeps coming up with such fresh ideas for Amish stories, but she does. The Ebb Tide is especially inspired. It's about a young woman approaching her decision point to join the church or not. But she's always longed to see the world and knows that once she joins the church, she'll be expected to put such dreams away forever. When an opportunity comes for her to spend at summer on the beach in Cape May, she begs her parents to let her go, promising to settle down and join the church when she returns.

    But Cape May holds unexpected insights and surprises. Readers get to watch Sallie Riehl wrestle with questions about her faith and her purpose and God's plan for her life. I especially loved how Lewis portrayed her family's response to her honest, coming-of-age struggle throughout the book. Sallie's and her family's emotions were so real and handled so well. Through a beautiful story, Lewis teaches grace, empathy, acceptance, and love.

    I recommend this book which I received from Bethany House Published in exchange for this posting of my honest thoughts.

    Trademark Beverly Lewis. She has such a distinctive voice. Reading her novels is like listening to a traditional storyteller. It's easy to slip into the pages of one of her books and lose yourself in the story. And she always writes from such interesting perspectives. And her first lines are always killer hooks. Like this one:

    "I was born with wanderlust in my heart."

    Not the confession one would anticipate from a young Amish woman. It's that wanderlust that sets Sallie apart. Keeps her from taking baptism classes each summer, Has her working extra hours to save up some travel money. She wants one big adventure before she can settle back into life with the People.

    A beautiful coming of age story.that celebrates the wisdom and peace of following God's leading on your life, despite how difficult the journey might be.

    This review was written for The Ebb Tide, large print.
    Great as usual. I have quite a few Beverly Lewis books and have enjoyed every one. I don't buy other Amish authors, seems like copycat.

    I wanted to read this book because it had a focus on the beach and a vacation theme. It is about Sallie who is struggling with finding time to join the Amish church and finally be settled in her family life and community. The problem is that she wants to travel. She craves adventure. We read about her working in a restaurant which is owned by the "English." She then gets a summer job as a Nanny where she gets to live in a beautiful, wealthy home at the beach. I enjoyed reading about the vacation type days she had.

    There was an Amish young man, back home, who was interested in her. She also met a young man while she was a Nanny. She could have married either one and had a good life. However, it was a choice of either remaining Amish or becoming "worldly." Honestly, I was very upset with her decision, but as the story came to an end, I understood better why it worked out that way, even though I didn't agree with her.

    There was something else in the story that I didn't particularly like. There were details of marine life presented in a sort of scholarly way - as if we, the readers, were taking a class in the subject. I found it boring and didn't care for it. For me, it took away from the enjoyment of the book.
