Hello Gemmies! I have a new cover reveal for you today. Hold Back The Tide is a new novel by Melinda Salisbury. This cover is dark, intriguing, and mysterious. Published by Scholastic, Hold Back The Tide is set to release on January 5, 2021.
Synopsis of Hold Back The Tide from Amazon:
Everyone in this quiet lakeside community knows that Alva's father killed her mother, all those years ago. There wasn't enough proof to arrest him, though, and with no other family, Alva's been forced to live with her mother's murderer, doing her best to survive until she can earn enough money to run away.
One of her chores is to monitor water levels in the loch -- a task her father takes very seriously. His family has been the guardian of the loch for generations. It's a cold, lonely task, and a few times, Alva can swear she feels someone watching her. Soon, rumors start to spread of dark creatures rising from the loch. Alva tries to convince herself that they're just stories, but as terror begins to hold the village in its grip, Alva comes to realize that there may well be a connection between the secrets of her past and the horror of her present.
The more Alva investigates, the more she realizes that the truth can be more monstrous than lies. And while you might be able to outrun anything that emerges from the dark water, you can never escape your past . . .
