Beyond Time and Tide by Anna Franklin Osborne

Beyond Time and Tide
Anna Franklin Osborne


Chill with a Book READERS’ Award

Beyond Time and Tide is set in the local area between Christchurch Harbour and the New Forest, and tells the story of three young people who are literally thrown together in the waters of Dunkirk. The book follows their lives to the present day, telling the story of how each one came to be there, and the friendships, loves, loyalties and mistrust which grew up amongst them.

Elsie, a young English girl, struggling to keep her family safe and desperate to rescue her brother from the beaches.

Monique, a French farmer, running from the untold damage done unto her by German soldiers, with no plan but to get away from the German army and the home they defiled.

Josef, a German soldier who has committed an offence to his own honour, and deserting the German army for whom he will no longer fight.

Three young people whose lives become intertwined in a way that will change each of them forever.

Beyond Time and Tide follows their struggle to survive their past: love, friendship and betrayal, and an onward quest to find redemption and what was lost to them all.
