Publisher's Summary

Every family has its secrets. Some are small, like telling a white lie or snooping through a private drawer. Others are more serious, like infidelity and betrayal. And some secrets are so terrible they must be hidden away in a deep, dark place, for if they ever came to light, they would surely tear a family apart....
The Tides are a family full of secrets. Returning to Clifftops, the rambling family house high on the Dorset coastline, youngest daughter Dora hopes for a fresh start, for herself and the new life she carries. But can long-held secrets ever really be forgiven? And even if you can forgive, can you ever really learn to love again?
Secrets of the Tides is the spellbinding debut from Hannah Richell; a rich and compelling family drama with a dark thread of suspense at its heart. Read by Emilia Fox, star of Silent Witness.

A compelling story

I found this story captivating. It was skilfully written painting vivid pictures of the characters and events that unfold. Hannah Richell writes with great insight into the complexities of family relationships. If only more families had the maturity and sense to, in time work through the aftermath of their mistakes, loss and grief.
I eagerly await her next novel The Shadow Year due to be published this year 2013. I hope Audible will add this one soon!
Highly recommended.

A brilliant story!!!

A highly emotional story about a family who suffers tragedy. Well written as we are taken along with each of the family members - flipping from present time, back to the past. A couple of times i found i just wanted to flip back to see what had happened in the past when it had gone back to the present time - but i contained my suspense and kept things going in order of the book. I have found this week whilst reading the book i have been holding on to my children a bit longer than usual........

Interesting story.

Where does Secrets of the Tides rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

I really enjoyed this book. It had a lovely way of weaving the reactions of the characters to the single main event. It is a very human story, with a few twists and turns. I enjoyed the reading voice as well. Well worth a listen.
