The Island

The Island

So deliciously addictive, it will be the “It” beach book of the summer’ – Kirkus Reviews

This summer, four women are hoping to escape their troubles . . .

Birdie is organising a wedding, though her own marriage is falling apart. Her sister India is running away from her first chance of happiness in a long time, while her daughter Tate is running to something, but what that is, she doesn’t yet know. And then there’s Chess, who is just a mystery that none of the family know if they will ever unravel.

Gathering together for the first time in years in a ramshackle house with no running water on a remote island, the women settle into a routine.

But just how long can they hide from the secrets, lies and tragedy they have left behind?
