Barry walked away as a finance banker to finally put his passion for art first. His first step is to visit where Gaugin is buried in the South Pacific. His travel companion on this flight is a French couple on their honeymoon. Flying over the ocean during a storm, the small plane crashes and Sophie and Barry are the only survivors.
The words in this book, paint vivid pictures in your mind. Of course, they struggle trying to survive but then come to depend on and love the strengths of the other. The author does not take the easy way out by showing struggles and then sizzling sex scenes but slowly builds the bond between them and includes trivia/history that adds to the richness of the content. Sophie and Barry form a strong bond of love and respect and I will miss them both. The narrator was perfect!
Other reviewers complain of the abrupt ending but I appreciated that (no spoilers). A truly wonderful book. Now I need to see what else Huckelbridge has written!
This book is beautifully written, tender and sad and haunting. It’s one of my top five that I’ve read this year, and I highly recommend it.
