What I'm Reading

The Island is a generational tale spanning the present in London to early 20th century in Greece. It's a story that delves into family, love, sickness, commitment, and all they entail. While some parts are a bit contrived, this book is best described by the quote on its cover: "... a beach book with a heart." The author, Victoria Hislop, read English at Oxford and won a newcomer award for this book. If you're looking for an absorbing beach read that's a bit fluffy but not too fluffy, this would be a nice one to take along for holiday.
