I finished reading 'The Island' by Elin Hilderbrand right before leaving on my vacation.
I enjoyed this book set on Tuckernuk Island off the coast of Nantucket. It is not my favorite book by this author but still an enjoyable read. I like the sister relationship (two generations) and the island is an interesting location, primitive and isolated. As Elin Hildebrand does so well, it's told from the perspective of many characters and it does move the plot along pretty well albeit sometimes a little slowly. I would recommend this book to fans of this author and those who like 'relationship' stories.
I am in Cali and my daughter had her wisdom teeth out yesterday. It was a hard day but she is doing much better today. The weather is gorgeous here but they are in the middle of a drought and need rain so badly. I arrived Tuesday evening and guess what??? My luggage didn't make the transfer of planes with me in LA. I had to laugh (for those of you who don't know my luggage was lost going and returning from Paris last year). I must say that SouthWest was very helpful and called me that night that it was at the airport and could be delivered the next day or I could pick it up and they would give me a $50 voucher. Ashleigh lives close to the airport so we picked it up. Not much else going on right now. Just enjoying time with my girl!
Wishing you JOY,
