The Island ~ Audiobook Review and Giveaway!


isbn 978-1607882404
Read by Denice Hicks
Pub. Date 7/6/10

Description: Birdie Cousins has planned a getaway with her daughter Chess on rustic, charming Tuckernuck Island off the coast of Nantucket, a chance to bond before Chess's upcoming marriage. Birdie's been through a difficult divorce herself, so she knows the big commitment that marriage entails. She's only recently dared to tiptoe back into the waters of romance.

When Chess abruptly breaks off the wedding and her fiancé shockingly dies in a rock climbing accident, it leaves Chess feeling guilty and deeply depressed. Birdie circles the wagons, convincing her younger daughter Tate, and her own sister India to join them on Tuckernuck for the month of July. Secrets and intrigue soon make their way to the surface, as Elin Hilderbrand once again weaves a masterful story of summer suspense.


As much as I love reading, I don't get to do it as often as I would like and it takes me a long time to finish an entire book. This Audio book is 15 hours long, but since I was able to have it on while I was doing other things it was so much easier for me to get through it. I found it to be a nice calm story to listen to while doing my evening tidy up around the house and even while cooking dinner or just relaxing. I fell asleep to it a few times, which was a bit of a pain to try finding my place but that was my own fault! The story had a nice feel for family bonding and even though I normally prefer fantasy or thrillers I found myself enjoying The Island and itching to know what would happen next.
