Publisher's Summary

Have you ever wanted to escape to a distant island? When Rosie Trethewey, a disillusioned doctor turned market researcher, unexpectedly inherits a shack on the remote northern tip of Great Barrier Island, she decides it's time to begin a new life. Arriving at her new home, Rosie finds she has two neighbors sharing the wilderness: Red O'Hara, a refugee from horrific wartime experiences on the Burma Railway, and Angus McLeod, a retired policeman who's abandoned a society he sees as soft and contemptible. Rosie's appearance panics Red and Angus, both fearing she'll disrupt their ordered lives...and they're right.

sole survivor

Pretty good 'till the ending. Did the author just get decide to quit writing? It leaves you hanging as to what interesting other things could have happened during her accumulation to the island. I spent an hour trying to find out whether or not I had the entire download, because it just stopped with no indication as to what else could be. A definite thumbs down with this ending.

Short and spicy .

Love this book. Great descriptive story that sets the finale up well.
Pity about some pronunciation otherwise well told.
