An Island of our own by Sally Nichols




Siblings Jonathan, Holly and Davy have been struggling to survive since the death of their mother, and are determined to avoid being taken into care. When the family's wealthy but eccentric Great-Aunt Irene has a stroke, they go to visit her. Unable to speak or write, she gives Holly some photographs that might lead them to an inheritance that could solve all their problems. But they're not the only ones after the treasure...

This novel made me kick myself that I hadn't read any Sally Nichols before. I don't even know I haven't but I'm certainly going to make it a priority to read more in the future. This book was utterly charming throughout and I found myself absolutely captivated by the story of the siblings as they go on their treasure hunt to find their inheritance. The characterisation was stop and the story was so engrossing I read this is one very greedy sitting.

Thank you, I'm going to read it!

I've been reading your blog for a while, mostly quietly. Today, I made myself the birthday present of publishing the first issue of Readings, a readable litcrit journal I had the madness of starting on my own: http://www.readingsjournal.net

Can't resist bragging.:)
