    1. The Dawning of the Day by Elizabeth OgilvieThis book in the trilogy follows Phillipa and her self discovery of herself when she comes to the island to be the teacher and falls in love.Love hearing how the islanders came to the mainland and interviewed a woman who will become the island teacher. The one room schoolhouse and she has a son she hopes will find some friends his own age.The trip over to the island reminds me of many trips we took to our local island every weekend on a gusty wind and l [...]

    2. I really enjoy the books by Elisabeth Ogilvie. This book takes place maybe in the 50's on an island off the Maine coast. The men are lobstermen. The island does not have all of our modern conveniences and technology. The story is about the families that live and work on the island and the good things and the bad things that can happen with such a small, close community.

    3. Ms. Ogilvie writes beautifully! Her word choices and textures render life on the island very real and rich to the reader. I am dazzled. Her plot grabs me in and causes me to continue reading when I should not. I JUST DISCOVERED THAT SHE HAS MORE THAN ONE BOOK!!!! How delightful to learn that a book that I have long enjoyed has friends!!

    4. Ogilvie can be hit or miss for me. Sometimes she gets so caught up in the atmosphere of Bennett's Island that she forgets characters, or plot. This does neither. Phillipa is one of her best characters, relatable and flawed, and the plot moves right along with real tension. In particular, this book captures best the suffocating feeling that small places can have when it's impossible to escape conflict. The ending felt a little undone, but it's clear that's on purpose, so I don't mind much.

    5. A story you can't put down and don't want to endAnother Elisabeth Oglivie portrait of personal and community life on a Maine island, the interaction of personalities, geography and circumstance poignantly made real in a consuming read.

    6. Just when I thought the Tide Trilogy was complete, I learned about another trilogy that follows the next generation of the Bennetts!
