This is the seventh book review for the Mad Reviewer’s Challenge. I am now more than halfway through my agreed amount of twelve books.
Island Passage by Sherry Hartzler
This book was chosen to take away on holiday. I found it a very easy read. The story has a mother/daughter relationship running through. The main character Francine,is devastated when her husband leaves her for a younger model, so takes her teenage daughter and runs to her mother’s island holiday home, which conjures up all her happy childhood memories. The relationship between Francine and her mother is strained, so unbeknown to her, her mother calls on Francine’s best friend Claudia to come and stay, while she herself disappears back to the mainland, only to return towards the end of the book with a surprise of her own!
Francine gradually realises how much happier she feels and is free to make her own decisions, live her life as she chooses, especially when an old flame turns up on her doorstep.
