Craig has said goodbye to his mother at Gatwick Airport and is heading to South America to interview for a new job, hoping to change his life, not realising just how much it will truly change. The engines on the plane fail and he is forced to bail out in a lifeboat. He spends days at sea until, at last, he finds himself washed up on a beach on an island that he believes to be deserted.Making friends with a seagull he calls Jonathan, a sunburnt, dehydrated and starving Craig struggles to survive in a new hostile environment without iPads, Starbucks and anti-depressants, not realising that he is not alone after all.
I enjoy stories about survival so thought I’d enjoy this particular tale but it was so much more than I expected. It was a story of survival but more than that, it was a story of hope and love. I was intrigued throughout and could not put it down. The book was romantic, sexy, exciting, funny, and at times sad. Without giving too much away, the end was especially poignant. This is one of the best tales I have read in a while and I would highly recommend it. I am looking forward to reading anything else from the author!
As a sucker for romance, I very much enjoyed this beautiful story of how two people found each other. From the very beginning I found myself wanting to read more and more. This book is very relatable too, touching on issues such as anxiety and depression, something that is very prominent and much more recognised in this day an age. A fantastic short story that has you whisked away to a remote Island (something I think we all crave from time to time) would highly recommend.
