Book: Is set in a remote island that has an ancient lighthouse and also mentions witches.
Me: TAKE MY MONEY!!!!
Listen. I am a simple creature, okay? I love lighthouses. And remote, picturesque islands. And witches. And magic. And mystery. This book had all of them. Of course I had to read it!! (Not to mention that gorgeous, gorgeous cover. That may have been one of the reasons I picked this up..)
So, in this story, two sisters go missing. One of them is found 22 years later. BUT SHE IS THE SAME AGE SHE WAS WHEN SHE DISAPPEARED. Sounds intriguing, right? Well, it was. The story shifted seamlessly between the past and the present, and had multiple POVs, and it was all done very well! I loved the plot. It kept me on the edge of my seat, waiting to see what happens next. The prose was beautiful! It transported me to the island.
I have always wanted to live near a lighthouse and listen to the ferocious waves crash against the rocks at night. I truly believe this would cure me. But alas, I must live vicariously through books. sigh
Have you read this book? Let me know your thoughts! If you like my recommendations, don't forget to buy me a book (or two).
