Sidney Sheldon’s The Tides of Memory by Tilly Bagshawe

Apr 17, 2014, 9:44 AM

Sidney Sheldon remains one of the world’s bestselling authors, having sold more than 300 million copies of his books. He is also the most translated author in the world, according to the Guinness Book of Records. He passed away in January 2007, but his legend lives on with his co-author Tilly Bagshawe.

His books are always known for their fantastic plot twists and detailed characters. This new book fits right in with all the rest and most assuredly does not disappoint in any way. The Tides of Memory is a novel that will sweep the reader along on a whirlwind ride through a couple of decades of love and hatred, passion and betrayal, confusion, terror, and murder. The characters are wholly enchanting, and will leave readers captivated. It is a novel that I simply could not put down, not unlike another novel by the same author, Angel of the Dark. Tilly Bagshawe had some very large shoes to fill when the late Sidney Sheldon passed on. But step into them she did, and if I may say, quite admirably so. This book will leave readers begging for more.

Toni Gilletti is a girl with the world at her feet. Young and gorgeous, she could be anything she wanted to be, until one summer when a horrible accident involving an innocent young boy ruins not only her life but the lives of several other teens as well.
