Praise for If the Tide Turns by Rachel Rueckert

"If the Tide Turns weaves together two fascinating worlds in a page-turning story of love, friendship, and self-discovery. It transports the reader to the time of witch trials and piracy, shrugging off popular caricatures and exploring real-life people--the hardships they faced and the hope that sustained them. A stirring and luminous read!" --Amanda Skenandore, author of The Nurse's Secret

"A delicious debut awash in lore and amazing historical detail, as wild and characteristically unpredictable as the sea that gives it life. Rachel Rueckert is a writer to be reckoned with. Maria and Sam's romantic travails grab you like a riptide and won't let go!" --V. S. Alexander, author of The Novelist from Berlin

"Rachel Rueckert's If the Tide Turns is a stunning, unapologetic story of two young people caught up in unfair circumstances in 18th century New England, who nevertheless remain determined to forge their own paths and unswerving in their devotion to one another. Meticulously researched and gorgeously written, this historical novel inspired by true events is a gripping tale of piracy, love, and most of all, the costs (and joys) of self-determination." --Rosalyn Eves, author of Beyond the Mapped Stars

"Rachel Rueckert delivers a sweeping adventure perfectly seasoned with a lyrical love story that grabs you from the beginning and doesn't let go. Her scintillating writing weaves a tale that stays with you long after you finish." --Janna MacGregor, author of Dear Future Husband and The Widow Rules series
