Book Review on “The Island”

“The Island” is by Elin Hilderbrand.  This book is a great summer time book to read.  It is about four women, 2 are sisters, their mother and their aunt (the mother’s sister) who spend a month on Tuckernuck Island.  Their family has owned a beach home for generations that is rustic by today’s standards.  Each one is struggling with different life changes, by their own choice or by what life has dealt them.  And there’s family conflict to over come.  Read this book to find out who finds love, who gets a second chance, who takes a drastic step into a relationship, and who finds inner peace out of turmoil.
