Waiting on Wednesday #11: Against the Tide

"Waiting On" Wednesday is a weekly event that spotlights upcoming releases that we're

Against the Tide by Elizabeth Camden
Bethany House - October 2012

After a childhood rampant with uncertainty, Lydia Pallas has carved out a perfect life for herself. She spends her days within sight of the bustling Boston Harbor, where her skill with languages has landed her an enviable position as a translator for the U.S. Navy.

Lydia's talents bring her to the attention of Alexander Banebridge, a mysterious man in need of a translator. Driven by a campaign to end the opium trade, Bane is coolly analytical and relentless in his quest. He cannot afford to fall for Lydia and must fight the bittersweet love growing between them.

When Bane's enemies gain the upper hand, he is forced to turn to Lydia for help. Determined to prove her worth, Lydia soon discovers that carrying out Bane's mission will test her wits and her courage to the very limits.

When forces conspire against them from without and within, can their love survive?

Why I want to read it I love historical fiction (this is set in the 19th century), I've been to Boston, translators are cool, and my grandpa worked for the US Navy. How can I not want to read this book? Plus the cover is so intriguing. (Apparently this has already released even though the publisher's site says Oct 12th?)

    1. If I had been wavering about requesting this book to review I think you just won me over. :-) I'll be sure not to start it too late in the evening! Thanks Amber!
