Review: The House Between Tides

The House Between Tides The House Between Tides by Sarah Maine
My rating: 3 of 5 stars

A young woman inherits a dilapidated -more than that, ruined- old house in a remote island. When she visits, with the idea of turning the house into a hotel/resort, she finds a skeleton in the remains of the house.
This was the family house of a famous painter, who lived there with his young wife 100 years before.

The story narrates both the events of 1910 as well as the situation in 2010.
As the story goes back and forth, we find out more about Theo Blake, the painter, and his family and of Hetty Deveraux, his sister's great grand-daughter, who inherits the house.

I have to say this book is very well written, but there's much description of the natural beauties and wildlife of the island... maybe too much? and for me, it was completely predictable and at 400 pages, way too long for me.

I received an ARC of this book in exchange for an honest review.
