Written by Daniela Sacerdoti
Three separate lives. Three broken hearts.
Haunted by his wife’s death, Matt arrives on Seal Island determined to be alone and unable to escape his grief.
In the island’s hospital, a young woman named Rose lies in a coma, trapped by the memories of events leading up to her accident.
Grace, the island’s doctor, is at the heart of the community. Only she knows how much she regrets turning down the chance of love and a family years ago.
For these three people hope seems gone.
But life is about to offer an unexpected new beginning…
Beautiful, Magical Reading!
There’s something very special about having a Daniela Sacerdoti novel to read; I just know I’m in for a treat!
Matthew can’t come to terms with his wife’s death; when the chance to live on Seal Island is offered to him, he has nothing to lose. A young woman lies in the local hospital, in a coma following an accident and unable to either return or move on. Grace, the local GP on the island, is very happy with her life there but she mourns having missed her chance of motherhood. These three stories are interwoven in a manner the reader could never foresee . . .
This is so good! There’s an almost ethereal quality about this author’s work and Seal Island is a magical creation. The story unfolds at it’s own pace, pulling the reader in and getting you really invested in the characters. I didn’t get the connection between the characters until the very end; I was too wrapped up in events and enjoying the wonder of the island. As always, this is a beautifully created novel; well-structured with good, solid writing and an array of believable characters who somehow manage to touch the readers’ soul. A sparkling read, and completely worth a full five, golden stars.
