This novella contains discussion questions making it ideal for book clubs.

A book that will leave you questioning what you believe.

Shipwrecked on an isolated island…

How far would you go to help a new friend? Would you kill someone?

How do you know what is and isn’t real?

When The Beacon beckons safe harbour isn’t guaranteed.

This read rocks. Yes rocks. It’s my first by the author and talk about hooking me in. I was sure I knew what was happening throughout only to be totally throw with each turn of the page. I didn’t even realise something right in front of me the whole time till it was pointed out to me after I was finished. The Protagonists name isn’t given at all and I totally didn’t notice. This doesn’t detract from the story, as I mentioned I didn’t even realise until after it was pointed out and it just added to the mystery.
I love the attachment created to the main character and her friend for that matter. I loved that I was sucked in and how odd things were the never knowing what was real and what wasn’t. I appreciate when a short story is able to capture me so much in such a short time. I highly recommend this to those who enjoy mysteries and a good short story.
