This book is incredible! Honestly it is a story unlike any other that I have read! I kept imagining how things were going to end, how a resolution could result and honestly nothing I came up with came even remotely close to what happened! Beyond the Rising Tide is a beautiful and emotional journey of impossible love. Love that knows no boundaries, love that shouldn't even be possible, but a love that is real!!! I could not put this book down and I am still thinking about Avery and Kai's story even though I am done reading it. You will love this book! You will!! It keeps you guessing, it keeps you emotionally involved in the characters and it is beautiful! Beard tells a story that will stay with you long after you close the book!
