The Ocean Within" chronicled real human emotion, but Tides existed merely to point out that families break up. Caldwell failed to portray her characters as realistically as in the prequel, and was often sidetracked by her theme of environmental conservation. All of this detracted from the substance of the book. However, I'm sure we can expect better works from this author in the future. The teen-aged drama that rocks an entire family is tackled with keen understanding. Caldwell brings us to the centre of the Sheridan tribe through the eyes of the Elizabeth, herself a new arrival to the group.

Elizabeth's passion is the ocean, which she has dreamed of seeing; too afraid to actually let the water touch her, she watches the ocean for hours while the others swim and play. It is four-year-old Petey who begins to reach Elizabeth; too young to be deceived, he recognizes both her loneliness and her fear. Allowing the Sheridans to be both loving and human, Caldwell is careful not to overplay Elizabeth's walls, and her pain, which is almost suffocating; absorbed young readers will find they are holding their breath at the end.
