In today’s LIVE podcast episode recorded at Main Street Books in Davidson, North Carolina, we meet Cynthia Newberry Martin, author of “Tidal Flats,” a novel where marriage is at the heart of the story and where conflicting choices could undermine the union. It’s the winner of the 2020 Gold Medal in Literary Fiction from the Independent Publisher Book Awards .

Rebecca Makkai, author of “The Great Believers,” says that Cynthia Newberry Martin is a tremendous writer, with a Woolfian talent for taking the full measure of small moments,” and Joshua Mohr, author of “Sirens and Damascus,” aptly notes that “the novel swirls with light and love.”

In Chapter 1, Cass and Ethan are nearing the end of their first three years of marriage, where the three-year pact they made to start their marriage, The Tidal Flats Agreement, is ever present and about to complicate their lives.

To start the show, Cynthia reads from the preface, when we learn about the agreement, and what lies ahead for the young couple.
