Publisher's Synopsis

It would always be summer on the island . . .


'I cannot put into words the love I have for Anna and T.J. I felt as though I was right there with them' 5***** Reader Review
'I'd give this more than 5 stars if I could! Will stay with me for a very long time' 5***** Reader Review

When thirty-year-old English teacher Anna Emerson is offered a summer job tutoring T.J. Callahan at his family's holiday home in the Maldives, she immediately accepts.

T.J. wishes he weren't going. Almost seventeen and finally cancer free, he'd much rather spend the summer with his friends.

But as Anna and T.J. jet off to join his family, the pilot of their seaplane suffers a fatal heart attack and crash-lands in the Indian Ocean. Marooned on an uninhabited island, Anna and T.J. work together to obtain water, food, fire and shelter.

As the days turn to weeks then months and finally years, Anna begins to wonder if the biggest challenge of all might be living with a boy who is gradually becoming a man . . .

As romantic as One Day and The Time Traveller's Wife, On the Island is the utterly compelling, scorching summer read that will whisk you away.

'The perfect book for a little escapism' 5***** Reader Review

'A story that stays with you long after you've finished it' 5***** Reader Review
