Author: Tracey Garvis Graves
“From the moment I opened On the Island, I was held captive. Tracey Garvis-Graves’ words command your attention from the very first sentence and do not let up. The concept of being stranded on a deserted island isn’t a new one. But with the characters she created, the fact that they are two very different people at two very different stages in their lives, how they expanded and evolved..this story becomes truly remarkable.” ~ Andrea, The Bookish Babe
“Ok, I know what you’re thinking, a 30 year old and a 16 year old??? I had that same thought before I read the book. HOWEVER, I completely fell in love with the story and absolutely nothing in the story is inappropriate! I honestly wasn’t ready for the book to end.” ~ Autumn, The Autumn Review
“The relationship between Anna and TJ was sweet and sexy and very real…the idea of their age difference was neither a shock nor unbelievable. The bonds created between individuals under duress are strong and enduring. And the romantic in me loved it as well.” ~ Cricket, Mostly Fantasy
“These two characters were fantastic together. Even though I tended to forget that Anna was considerably older than TJ, she never did – and this attention to the appropriateness of their relationship was one of the things that I liked about her and one of the things that I loved about how the book was written.” ~ Asheley, Into the Hall of Books
“On the Island is a clever, captivating story. The characters will live in your thoughts long after you turn the last page.” ~ Meira Pentermann, author of Firefly Beach and Nine-Tenths
When thirty-year-old English teacher Anna Emerson is offered a job tutoring T.J. Callahan at his family’s summer rental in the Maldives, she accepts without hesitation; a working vacation on a tropical island trumps the library any day.
T.J. Callahan has no desire to leave town, not that anyone asked him. He’s almost seventeen and if having cancer wasn’t bad enough, now he has to spend his first summer in remission with his family – and a stack of overdue assignments – instead of his friends.
Anna and T.J. are en route to join T.J.’s family in the Maldives when the pilot of their seaplane suffers a fatal heart attack and crash-lands in the Indian Ocean. Adrift in shark-infested waters, their life jackets keep them afloat until they make it to the shore of an uninhabited island. Now Anna and T.J. just want to survive and they must work together to obtain water, food, fire, and shelter. Their basic needs might be met but as the days turn to weeks, and then months, the castaways encounter plenty of other obstacles, including violent tropical storms, the many dangers lurking in the sea, and the possibility that T.J.’s cancer could return. As T.J. celebrates yet another birthday on the island, Anna begins to wonder if the biggest challenge of all might be living with a boy who is gradually becoming a man.
On the Island is a full-length adult romance novel. It explores the human need for more than mere survival, the meaning of bonds formed in isolation, and the ways those bonds are bound to change.
Author: Bernadine Fagan
If ever a woman was not cut out for life in a backwoods town in Maine it’s chic city woman Nora Lassiter. If ever there was a misunderstanding about what a woman does for a living, the very idea that Nora could be a “hotshot New York detective” takes the cake. But when she stumbles upon a body in the woods, and her uncle becomes the prime murder suspect, Nora’s plans to return to New York City are put on hold.
