Product Description

**The powerful continuation of the story that began in Reclaiming the Sand- a tale of love and forgiveness and learning to move on from a past that has come to define you.**

Bully and Victim

Friend and Lover

Past and Future

Ellie McCallum and Flynn Hendrick’s story was as painful as it was devastating. But they were able to find within each other an unlikely yet beautiful love. Despite the obstacles that tried to keep them apart.

And together they rose out of the ashes of their tragic history.

Now years after their life changing reunion Ellie is back in Wellston, having just graduated from college and ready to start her future with the man who taught her how to love. However, returning to a town that held so much bitterness and anger was the last place she wanted to start over.

But for Flynn, who is now an art professor at the community college and firmly rooted in the place that gave them their beginning, she’d do just about anything.

Yet it’s difficult building a life when you’ve only just learned how to live.
And love, no matter how strong, doesn’t always conquer all.

Ellie and Flynn must learn how far they are willing to go to stay together. Or whether the ghosts of the past will consume them both.

Because finding a happily ever after is harder than it seems. Particularly when you’re fighting against the one thing that could destroy you.

This was certainly a different kind of story, however, it was a beautiful one. I loved the character of Flynn, he was real and so honest. The character of Ellie, was still at times frustrating, though I was understanding her more by the end.

This is a truly wonderful story, my only comment is that it could have been written just a little better. If this story were to be written tighter and more refined, it could be truly one of the greats.

Beautiful ending to a endearing love Ellie and Flynn certainly started out Rocky and it went back and fourth so many times it was one big emotional roller coaster but love love is blind it doesn't discriminate or see colour or prejudice it is light and deep and ever conquering and a perfect ending to Ellie and Flynn's love story a lot of back story going back and fourth between the past and present sad to see an end :(

5.0 out of 5 stars Powerful, Real, Unforgettable. 23 December 2014
By Amazon Customer - Published on

Meredith, - your capture of genetic/physiological and psychological conditions and giving us a window to the people inside is nothing short of amazing. I treasure the fact that you give these people a voice. Find you In the Dark Series (AMAZING) and Now Reclaiming the Sand - I LOVE FLYNN and ELLIE - I hate that their story is all too common for people that are "different" and do not have the good fortune to have understanding people or family to fall back on. I will say that it probably took someone with Ellie's unfortunate background to understand Flynn enough to let him in. I'm ashamed that many of us never step out of our comfort zone enough to relate to these individuals and thereby enrich our own lives. Ellie's story is all too common. When people think that someone is difficult or nasty, sometimes we really need to examine why before we judge. Having no family and being shuttled through the foster care system with families that aren't in it for the right reasons can be devastating. AS usual, I had to stay up until 1:00 PM (again!) for one of your books. Again, worth it! I hate to use the word Unforgettable again, but I'll be thinking about Flynn and Ellie for a while. PS (Why no audible???) I usually have to listen as well as read my favorite books just to get "more" out of them - I hope you'll consider it! THANK YOU FOR THE Ending and Epilogue, I must have an HEA!
5.0 out of 5 stars Oh, how I love Ellie and Flynn! 18 April 2015

A beautifully emotional and hopeful follow-up to Reclaiming the Sand.

A. Meredith Walters’ gift lies in her power to weave truths and honesty in the heartbreakingly beautiful. Chasing the Tide is a romantic love story about the trials a couple faces when trying to build a future after a fiery, destructive past.

The story begins with Ellie McCallum returning to the last place she ever wanted to call home, in order to be with the only person she’s ever loved, Flynn Hendrick. She just accomplished a goal she never thought possible, by getting her college degree, and she’s terrified that she’ll return to the violent, self-destructive girl she once was if she returns to the place that houses all her worst memories.

Flynn Hendrick has grown a lot too, since Ellie left him to go to college. He’s a professor at his university, and he’s still living in the town with the same people who tortured him years before. But he’s growing in confidence. Flynn is still a little bit freaky, but he’s learning what it means to live less isolated, and to let others in.

This really was the perfect continuation for anyone who fell in love with Ellie and Flynn in Reclaiming the Sand. I adored that story and the realness of each character, and A. Meredith Walters uses her stark prose, and unnerving storytelling to bring greater clarity to both Ellie and Flynn. This love story is so far from what is typical, and I adore that. Ellie is a heroine that is very hard to love, but I think in this installment, getting a closer look at her past, and the crushing events that made her the person she is allows us to be empathetic to her actions and it made me love her even more.

And Flynn…oh Flynn! I love that man! In his own way, he’s a bit of an anti-hero, but not completely since he’s so hard to define. Flynn is truth and love. He’s forgiveness and second chances. He’s understanding and loyalty. He is quite possibly the best book boyfriend I’ve ever read. His love for Ellie is unmatched, and it made me feel so hopeful, even during the scenes when I wanted to die because it hurt so good.

I will be honest and say that these books aren’t for those who can’t take pain, or read about people struggling to find their happiness. Reclaiming the Sand and Chasing the Tide both took a lot out of me, and I didn’t feel relief until the very last pages, but boy was all the pain worth it. I haven’t recovered from these and I’m sure I never will. What I felt when I read the last pages was just the best – it was that pure joy that you only get from the very best books. I’m so sad to read the end of Ellie and Flynn, but I know they’ll always be there for me to revisit when I want to feel that feeling again – you know the one I’m talking about.
5.0 out of 5 stars The Quote at the End Really Sums This Up for Me 20 December 2014

Flynn and Ellie, two very special kids, who grew up to be teenagers, now adults, deserve to be happy. The road was bumpy, the ' weather' was really cruel and nasty. Heartaches litter their paths. Abuses, both sexual, emotional and physical was a constant staple in their lives. Everything was foggy and clouded over. It was doom and gloom. Then there is this tiny ray of sunlight and hope, and they both grasp it and held on. Tight. I am so proud of these two, and Dania also. Ellie got a college degree! That was an exclamation mark by itself. Flynn is now a professor.

I cried and sobbed like a baby in the first book of Flynn and Ellie. This second book is not different. My tears are of joy though. Bad stuff happened to children in our world. Sometimes they make it, sometimes they don't. I am happy Ellie made it and she is making a difference in the lives of other children who might be in the situation she was as a kid. I am ecstatic she did not break Flynn's heart. She is the only one that 'gets' him, and he is the only one who 'knows' her.

So, that quote at the end of the book by Richard Bach? Yeah 'True love stories never have endings'. Flynn and Ellie's is forever running on repeat in my heart. It is surreal. It renews my faith in humanity. I don't have enough words to write a review on this book. So I'll stop here.
5.0 out of 5 stars Perfect closure 20 December 2014

A perfect closure to their journey.

I love reclaiming the sands but I'm one of those who felt its too abruptly and so much question with little answers. Well.. Chasing the tide gave everything I needed to makes this story complete.

While I spent most of reclaiming the sand hating Ellie's guts, Chasing the tide gave so much background story that explained Ellie and how she came to be the person she is today. And what a journey for both of them.

I love how Flynn changed so much and how he was so strong. I just love him! All the emotions they both felt are so real and nothing over the top.

It's such a perfect way of telling emotions, feelings, and life struggles without over the top drama. It's all felt real.
Her emotions, his emotions.
His struggles, her struggles.
Her frustration, his frustration.
Her doubts, his certainty.

It's perfect.

This is another favourite story told perfectly by a. Meredith Walters after finding you in the dark series.

I love it! Perfect closure.

5 stars no doubt!

I have over 400 books on my Kindle and I can count on one hand the number of times that I have left a review. I have to be driven to form the words to tell others about a book that I have read. This book does just that. The way the author has written the characters in this novel just compelled me to share with others. I just love Flynn with all my heart. I love Ellie as well. They way that they come together in this second book touched my soul. It made me cry and smile through out. I devoured it in 2 days. If you loved the first book as much as I did, you will love this one just as much. I want to thank the author for writing this story. It wasn't always an easy story to read. There were times I wanted to crawl into the book and bitch slap the characters, but they pulled their act together and made it right. Thank you for another amazing story about Flynn and Ellie. I hope there are more to come.
