The Great Pick Up Line

Welcome Genevieve Graham as they share their Great Pick Up Line from Tides of HOnour.
Take it away Genevieve!
“Please be careful, Danny.”
“I always am, Audrey.”
“Even more now, all right?”
“All right.” He stepped closer, and she could swear the air hummed between them. “What I really want, though, is for you to be careful. Don’t trust soldiers, Audrey. None of them. Soldiers are crazy.”
“I trust you.”
“Okay, well … I guess you can trust me.” He paused then touched her cheek with the backs of his fingers. She closed her eyes and smiled, feeling like a happy cat. She practically purred when he touched her.
“I guess it makes no sense, but I’m plain crazy about you,” he said softly, then leaned in to kiss her. His lips were soft but not shy. When he pulled away, she leaned in for another. Then he rested his forehead against hers and whispered, “I’ll be back for you, Audrey. I promise.”
“Kiss me again, soldier,” she whispered, and he did. “I will wait for you.”

Tides of Honour by Genevieve Graham

A novel of love, loss, and honour amidst the horrors of war and its aftermath.

In the summer of 1916, Private Daniel Baker marches into battle with the boys of Nova Scotia’s 25th Battalion. Out of brutal necessity, Danny has steeled himself against the trials and horrors of war, but he is completely unprepared to meet the love of his life in war-torn France.

Audrey Poulin has the soul of an artist. She lives alone with her grandmother in the quiet French countryside, where her only joy is in her brush and palette. When, by chance, she encounters Danny, the handsome young soldier captures her heart and inspires her painting. The young lovers believe that only together can they face the hardships the war brings.

But love is just the beginning. Mere months later, Danny is gravely wounded at the Battle of the Somme, and his future is thrown into uncertainty. Soon, he and Audrey find themselves struggling to build a new life in Halifax, a city grieving its lost men. As the grey winter of 1917 sets in, Danny’s lack of purpose and Audrey’s isolation continue to mount, pulling the two apart just as a new catastrophe threatens their existence.

Heartrending and enthralling, Tides of Honour is a novel of love and second chances set against Halifax’s most devastating moment of the First World War.

About Genevieve Graham

“Breathing life back into history one story at a time.”

Genevieve Graham graduated from the University of Toronto in 1986 with a Bachelor of Music in Performance (playing oboe). While on a ski vacation in Alberta she met a really cute guy in the chairlift line-up and soon decided she had to have him … permanently. The couple (now coming up on their 25th Anniversary) subsequently moved to Calgary and brought two intelligent, beautiful, and talented daughters into the world. Since then they resettled in a small, quiet town in Nova Scotia and are loving their new life.

“Come From Away”, “Promises to Keep”, and “Tides of Honour” were written out of her love for both history and her home in Nova Scotia. Her passion for often forgotten moments in Canadian History has made her Simon & Schuster Canada’s in-house Canadian Historical Fiction author.

  • I always love books like that but it’s been a while since I haven’t read one!

    • Oh yes, I finished this one just a little while ago and it was heartwarming and emotional. 🙂

  • So cool to see this one featured today! I’d never heard of this book until very recently when I happened to see a review of it. I was so taken by the review that I ordered it immediately and just received it a couple days ago. Even more excited to read it now!
