Chasing the Tide is the continuation of the story that started in Reclaiming the Sand. Ellie has graduated college and has returned to the town she vowed to never step foot in again. This town holds pain and bad memories for her. The one reason she decided to return was for the only person who has ever felt like home to her… Flynn.
Ellie has flashbacks to her time spent in this town as a girl. Those flashbacks are filled with hurt and disappointments which shapes her into the adult she has become. At every corner of this town she runs into her past and is forced to come to terms with what has haunted her.
Flynn is doing well in the life he has created for himself. He’s teaching what he loves at a local community college. His character reminds me of Ray Romano in the tv show Parenthood. Both have Aspergers and have to learn to navigate their love life along with everyday living.
Flynn and Ellie are stilted characters who find communicating with each other at best a challenge and at worse a paradox.
If you are like me and wanted more of the Ellie & Flynn’s story then you need this book. Chasing the Tide fills in the blanks on how these two are handling living together and moving forward in a world that is filled with oppositions.
