    TIDES OF HONOUR another WINNER by Genevieve Graham

    Graham's TIDES OF HONOUR is one of the best Canadian books I have read! A wonderful love story first, but a sweeping tale of Danny's and Audrey's fight to stay together despite the tides that are their obstacles: the horrors of WWI, the mental and physical toll on our soldiers who returned from it, the necessity of women working in factories at home at half the wages of men, the suffrage movement and awakening power for women, corruption and greed in labour management that spawned the need for the unions. And then the Halifax Explosion...experienced by this reader as if I was there. Graham weaves words that made me weep and laugh and worry and celebrate with the characters we come to love. Her settings in Canada's Maritimes, are vivid and compelling us to visit Nova Scotia's Eastern Shore. Great history, supreme storytelling. Worthy of CanLit legend and a must read for pure joy.

    Tides of Honour

    I loved this story. A romance set in the war years. It was a page turner. Audrey and Danny had many struggles and hardships because of the war. I just had to admire them. This book was hard to put down. First read by this author and I will look at other books she had written.

    Love books that are set during historical events!

    Although I was aware of the 1917 event that caused so much damage and devastation in Halifax, I wasn't really aware of the details. This story intertwines WWI France/England with Halifax/sea-side Nova Scotia in an interesting tale of love, family and the economic strife of the time. People often think of the 1960's as a time of great change but WWI had more of an impact on the times with the changing role of women, a lost generation of men and immigration. This story is fiction but one can easily understand the frustrations and disappointments of those returning from the war, especially those that are broken, whether physically, mentally or spiritually, or more often than not, all three. It's also very difficult for those around them that are trying to understand what happened to the soldiers when they don't wish to speak about the horrors that they experienced. A great read!

    Loved this read!

    This is the story of a young man returning from WWI after losing a leg. A young lady he met in France and fell in love with joins him at his family home in Nova Scotia to marry him there. Their lives take them to Halifax, where ther live at the time of the explosion in the Halifax Harbour. It is a truly Canadian story and one rarely told.

    Canadian heroes

    Romance and great history lesson rolled into a good read. We don't blow our horn enough about events that have happened here. Maybe we need to be a little louder in praise of what our military have accomplished throughout the world.
