A Novel by Angel Khoury

Between Tides

Set on Cape Cod and the Outer Banks, Between Tides is a lyrical novel for readers of Where the Crawdads Sing and Marilynne Robinson’s Housekeeping —a terrific book club pick at the intersection of gothic, historical, and women’s fiction.

1890s, Cape Cod: Between tides, a man deserts his wife and his post as keeper of the Chatham Beach Lifesaving Station to start a new family far to the south, at Cape Hatteras.

1940s: His daughter, en route to serve in World War II with the Red Cross, travels to Cape Cod where she meets his first wife, Blythe, reanimating a life she had long buried: memories of her courtship, her bitter losses, and her husband’s slow-motion vanishing.

Set on two wild seascapes, Between Tides is the story of two women stitching together a family ripped at the seams and proving that even through absence, love’s presence is everlasting.

As I read Between Tides, I was continually impressed by the novel’s sheer richness. Only immense research could capture a place and its history so thoroughly, yet Khoury blends fact and imagination so well that the reader is always within the novel’s world.  The writing is vivid and memorable, a delight unto itself, and the characters complex, utterly convincing.  From a coastal landscape known for hidden treasures, Angel Khoury has emerged and given us a wonderful novel.

Ron Rash
NYT bestselling author of Serena and The Cove


“Novelist Angel Khoury has invented an incandescent language and a fluid point of view all her own to write this century-spanning story of passion and betrayal, memory and consciousness, love and longing, all set in an isolated, beautifully-limned natural universe of sun and sand and tides, birds and fish and seagrass.”

-Lee Smith
Author of Fair and Tender Ladies,
Oral History, Guests on Earth


“Angel Khoury is a deeply gifted writer. Between Tides  bridges the nineteenth and twentieth centuries, a haunting maritime opera of torn lives, betrayal, love and near-redemption.  Especially the women characters have hearts that are like wild seascapes.”

Howard Norman
Twice named a National Book Award finalist and bestselling author of The Bird Artist and Next Life Might Be Kinder
