Synopsis

The Island

Welcome to the island.
This is no fantasy.
You’ll face fears.
You’ll face travesty.
You’ll face yourself.

One deserted island.
Two heinous crimes.
Two convicted hearts.

When decent people do bad things,
there’s only one place for forgiveness:
Redemption Island.

The island knows what you’ve done.

We have a deserted island. You are sent here to atone for your crimes. One year to survive by yourself. Except this time there are two are sentenced to the island. One convicted of an unspeakable crime. One the victim but also a portrayer of an unspeakable crime. Will they earn forgiveness? Will they learn to forgive? Only the island knows.

“‘You undo me,’ he moaned against our combined lips, still pressed to one another, but not kissing.

‘I was hoping to tame you,’ I whispered.

‘I think I want you to tame me,’ he hummed. ‘But you make me wild instead.’”

I had no idea what to expect with this form of justice suggested by a Native American facilitators. Tack’s father pushed him towards spending a year alone on a tropical island alone to learn how to atone and become a better man. He had no idea the woman he damaged would be there with him. Juliet has a lot of resentment and anger for Tack’s involvement in her assault. I couldn’t believe how little responsibility Tack felt at first glance. The two clashed and I really couldn’t understand the big picture of why they were on this island together. I wanted to throttle all of the facilitators because it couldn’t be a coincidence. I loved how the story unfolded as the two of them began to rely upon each other for pure survival. I was shocked at the twist and how the story ended. I can’t wait to see what happens when they meet again in the “real world” and see if their shared experience translates to real life permanent changes.

I have to say this book was different than any story I’ve read before. We not only have a victim but we have revenge. It really made it more complicated than I expected. I have no idea what is coming next!
