I've read a lot of wonderful redemption stories, but A Vast and Gracious Tide in particular really pulled at my heartstrings. I could feel Caden's inner turmoil at the beginning of the story, his struggle to find a spark of hope and a reason to live. The phantom pains, the survivors' guilt, and the overwhelming sense of loss were all part of Caden's daily life. I know veterans and amputees, and Lisa Carter portrays their struggle accurately and respectfully.
McKenna was also familiar with loss in her life, although her life circumstances differed greatly from Caden's. Both of them were struggling to move on with their lives and to recognize God's vision for their futures. I have to say that McKenna's determination and persistence with Caden were extremely admirable! He spent a lot of time pushing her away, and she handled it quite well even when angered. As Caden and McKenna slowly unraveled the mystery of the dead body on the beach, I was excited to see how it played out. The way that they drew closer, challenging one another and growing, is so exciting and romantic. I laughed, I cried, and I enjoyed all of the action too!
This was my first chance to read one of Lisa Carter's books, and I'm so glad that I did. I'm excited to look for her other books now! I received a complimentary copy of this book. All opinions expressed are my own.
