The Island by Victoria Hislop


Island Book Cover




Victoria Hislop’s first novel, The Island, was an excellent read.  One could feel the Mediterranean breeze as she describes the Cretan/Greek settings.   This multi-generational story quickly pulled me into the lives of the various characters. And one will certainly learn what it was like living in a leper colony with a World War II backdrop.  There will be a little something for those who enjoy the study of human behavior mixed with love stories & historical fiction genres.
