    One thought on “Moon Island”

    1. Coming of age amongst family tragedy in a small enclave of holiday cottages on the coast in Maine The story unfolds with scandals, love affairs, tragedies etc Well worth the effort to read I don t give 4 stars readily but there was so much contained in this book about human relationships that were full of reality We would act this way and we can understand the characters.

    2. The best Rosie Thomas I ve read so far This book stays with you Very atmospheric I love this one and also Sun at Midnight.

    3. I will say that I liked the idea for the story the author told however, if she s going to write about Americans, she should have an American proofreader to correct her many errors in wording Americans don t talk like the people in this book did.Secondly, she should learn how to wrap up an ending The book should have ended a good 60 70 pages earlier than it did It just kept dragging on and on and on.Otherwise, a good read So, if you can overlook those things, you ll probably rate it higher than a [...]

    4. Sooooooooooo overwhelming and bewitching There are many stories going on within a single novel It has smoothly depicted the idea that how our lives are affected by others.

    5. John Duhane takes his daughters, 14 year old May and 17 year old Ivy, to spend the summer at a beach house on a small stretch of untamed Maine coast, one of a row of five old clapboard houses Beautiful Ivy soon integrates herself with the younger members of the extended Beam family who holiday there every year, but May is still struggling to come to terms with her mother s sudden death four years before She finds the hidden diary of a girl her age who died the previous year, and becomes convince [...]

    6. I don t think this is one of her best books, but I did enjoy reading it As this Christmas approaches, a ghost story seems an appropriate read although it is set on a beach and most of it during the summer season But it does end with snow It is also a coming of age story which can be a difficult time for even the most well balanced teenager May finds it painful than most Her mother has died and the rest of her family are so wrapped up in their own ways of grieving that she feels she has no one t [...]

    7. Moon Island by Rosie Thomas is a fascinating read about a tiny beachside community in Maine where lives are lived both permanently and by annual holiday makers Widower John arrives with his two daughters Ivy and May for a much needed holiday break They are swept into the annual celebrations, included in the community events and listen to the folklore of departed souls What a fabulous adventure.Carinya

    8. I read this novel, a couple of years ago,I remember it, because I identified with May As a teenager,I also had the same active imagination.I envied my older sisters , because of the ease they had, adapting to new situations.It s a beach read that I enjoyed enough , to read a second time.

    9. I enjoyed getting to know all the characters who were quite a varied cast There are some sad overtones to the story and I was pleased that the drama helped to unravel the back stories provided empathy for the characters A decent summer beach read.

    10. It was a good read, a bit predictable The connections between the characters were well written I enjoyed the book as a back yard summer book

    11. Really enjoyed this Complex inteweaving of different story lines interconnected by a common theme bGreat to discover a new author and will definitely read of her books

    12. A great read Read on a long haul flight and finished it in one go Definitely not her best the Kashmir shawl is but easy reading and enjoyable.

    13. This book held my attention throughout, though when I look back on it there is nothing substantial in the plot I liked it, though Just not sure how I would explain the book to someone else.
