    I could almost hear the sea and taste the salty airTo be perfectly honest I found this a little slow to start Then for me Jane the doctors daughter the friend of Harriet the main character seemed a whole lot interesting But as the story progressed and children became young adults it livened up At times the words magically evoked the faint sound of the sea washing upon the rocky shore I could almost smell the sea airI was moved by the tragedies that just seemed to never end for Harriet I was warmed by the great compassion and sensitivity she showed her family friends neighbours It turned out to be a wonderful story and one I would certainly recommend Although like I said you may need to persevere through the opening pages but the story did not disappoint in the end

    I won this book through GoodreadsIt is about the life on a small island Riduna in the late 19th Century The book tells the story so you really get a feeling for what it was like to grow up on a small island you follow peoples dreams and tragedies It is amazing that some of these people never left or even wanted to leave the island I liked the book and definitely would like to read in this series I will recommend the book to family and friends
