Changing Times, Changing Tides

by Sally Aviss

Cover image

In the dense jungle of Malaya in 1942, Doctor Rachel Curtis stumbles across a mysterious, unidentifiable stranger, badly injured and close to death.

Four years earlier in 1938 in London, Katherine Stewart and her husband Alex come into conflict with their differing needs while Alex’s father, Alastair, knows he must keep his deeper feelings hidden from the woman he loves; a woman to whom he must never reveal the full extent of that love.

Covering a broad canvas and meticulously researched, Changing Times, Changing Tides follows the interwoven journey of well-loved characters from The Call of Cairnmor, as well as introducing new personalities, in a unique combination of novel and history that tells a story of love, loss, friendship and heroism. The stage shifts from London to Singapore, then the turmoil of Dunkirk and D-Day. Love appears to triumph, but events then move in a totally unexpected direction…

The novel includes a detailed portrayal of the unsung hero of Operations Dynamo (the Dunkirk evacuation) and Neptune/Overlord (the Normandy landings), Admiral Sir Bertram (Bertie) Ramsay, and has an afterword by his son Major General Charles Ramsay.

Sally Aviss comes from East Kent, and has sailed much of the Kent coast and Thames Estuary. In addition to her writing, she is a professional classical musician and instrumental teacher. Changing Times, Changing Tides is the second novel in her Cairnmor trilogy, and is followed by Where Gloom and Brightness Meet.
