What is Turning Tides?
Turning Tides is a community-led organisation which works to end homelessness in Worthing and the surrounding areas. Starting with four Christians who decided to visit the local homeless people to give them soup, sleeping bags and blankets. These acts of kindness grew into Worthing Churches Homeless Projects in 1992, providing buildings to house the homeless.
My love for reading spans many genres but my favourites are crime thrillers, romance, fantasy and historical. Check out my last review for Dead at First Sight by Peter James. I have just finished reading Blood Orange by Harriet Tyce, published in 2019 by Wildfire. This novel explores abusive, toxic relationships, painting a very dark story. My pal, Kim, recommended that I read the novel as she couldn’t put it down and she was right!
Whilst lockdown has seemingly upped my threshold for reading – returning to books that are ‘must-reads’ like Lord of the Flies and Catch-22 alongside ploughing through mainstream bestsellers like Where the Crawdads Sing – it’s actually a book that I read at the very beginning of the year that is my standout title so far.
With all the uncertainty in the world right now and everyone spending more time stuck indoors than ever before, we all need somewhere to escape.
