The Islanders by Meg Mitchell Moore (ooh I love that alliteration), is a summer smash hit. Set on Block Island, you’ll feel all the gorgeous sun on your skin and the sand between your toes as you flip the pages of this masterpiece.
Anthony is set out to find solace after he has been accused of plagiarizing his second novel. His first book was a best seller, but since then, he’s been disgraced by everyone. Including his famous writer father.
Lu is a stay at home mom who isn’t really happy with how her life is going. She’s started a blog, to write about all of her feelings that she can’t tell anyone about, but no one in her real life knows about what she speaks of online.
Then, there’s Joy. She runs the local bakery on the island. All of these character’s lives intertwine in interesting ways. The lives of Anthony, Lu, and Joy will never be the same after the summer on the island.
If you like books that immerse you one hundred percent and leave you begging for more once you flip that last page, then you are going to adore this novel. I love how each character has a different feel throughout each chapter, the voices of each person are unique to their story, and how they all merge together to create a huge story arc is a pleasant surprise.
This book was wonderful. I believe it will be one of the biggest books of 2019. It’s got reminds me of a Elin Hildebrand book, but even better! I give this one 5 out of 5 stars.
