This is just my second Elizabeth Camden book. My first was "The Rose at Winslow Street", which I loved. I hesitated in buying "Against the Tide" because of one or two reviews, but I'm really glad I did. I love Elizabeth's writing because she takes such care in creating memorable, distinctive characters. In "Against the Tide" she tells an engrossing story woven out of family ties, pride in work, intrigue and courage. The dry humor between the characters is witty and engaging. And the suspense and despair are very real. Some reviewers have been put off by the religious overtones, but Camden keeps everything within the context of the story, so the characters' belief feels natural for them and not at all preachy. Above all, I love the intelligence and courage of the heroine, Lydia. From the first moment we meet her, and throughout the story, she embraces life and deserves every moment of love and security she gains by the end.

A great read. Not at all preachy at all. The characters are likeable enough. The story moves pretty quickly. The narrator is very good, even though she sounds very old for performing the voice of a 24yr old woman. But all in all she did a great job.
I will definitely listen to more of this author's work.
