Synopsis: In a poignant, heart-felt exploration of one woman’s struggle to be true to herself yet hold on to the things dearest to her, award-winning author Edna O’Brien tracks the life of Nell Steadman, an innocent “country girl” desperate to gain experience in whatever manner possible: Escaping from her overbearing family into an equally stifling marriage, Nell must fight for her freedom and custody of her children. Passionate, raw, and gorgeously written, Time and Tide is a profound exploration of the primal undertow of motherhood.
