Between Tides is one of the top two books of 2021 here at Downtown Books. Written by a distinguished Roanoke Island resident well known for her writing talent, upon its release in August it quickly became a best-seller among OBX locals and visitors alike. Between Tides is the story of Blythe, a woman who lives on Cape Cod in Chatham and is at the end of her days. Blythe was married long long ago to Gil, a man who came and went 'between tides' and who eventually left her to settle and begin a new life (with a new wife) on the Outer Banks of North Carolina. Written in dual time format, the novel toggles between the late 1800's when Blythe watched her young husband start disappearing for long periods of time and the early 1940's, when a young girl named Gilly shows up on her door looking for more information about the father she barely knew. I like to tell our customers that if Lisa Wingate (Before We Were Yours, The Prayer Box) and Delia Crawford (Where the Crawdads Sing) had a 'book baby'- this would be it! Angel has received accolades from Publisher's Weekly (one of the notable Indie books of Fall 2021) and authors the likes of Lee Smith and Ron Rash. This is a wonderful book to put under the tree for any reader in your life- especially those with an affinity for our beautiful Outer Banks. 

Angel will be with us on Saturday, November 27, from 1pm - 3pm for a Small Business Saturday book signing. Small Business Saturday is a wonderful day to head downtown where every shop is independently owned and every purchase is made at a local business! Signed books will be shipped after the event.
