The city of Boston is fascinating—full of history and color. While best known for its key role in the American Revolution, the city also played a role in World War II, with busy shipyards and naval bases—and more! The city’s reputation for revolutionary foment and its naval heritage set a great backdrop for When Tides Turn, set in the tumult of 1943.
I’ve been blessed to visit Boston a number of times. In July 2014, I made a research trip and took lots of pictures to help me visualize the story. We’ll follow the Freedom Trail, established in the 1950s to connect Boston’s multiple historical sites.
I’m linking to the Tour of Boston posts from the last two years, when Through Waters Deep and Anchor in the Storm released. NOTE: to enter this year’s giveaway, leave a comment HERE, not on the previous years’ posts.
Boston Common and the Public Garden—including the Parkman Bandstand, which plays a role in the story.
Park Street Church—where Dan and Tess attend church.
Charlestown and the USS Constitution—see pictures of the Bunker Hill Monument and the apartment building where Mary, Lillian, and Yvette live.
Charlestown Navy Yard—called Boston Navy Yard in 1942, where Dan and Tess are stationed.
The Old State House Area-where Tess does some sleuthing.
