The story jumped all over the place......from character to character and from time period to time period. I had a hard time following it. All in all, I found it a strange tale and not all that enjoyable. I did like the descriptions of the island and some of the historical details. I have never read any other books by this author and because of this book probably won't.
I normally do not like books that continually jump around in time or in characters...three stars was the best I could do and that was generous.
But I think the publisher and editor needed to do a lot more work. The various threads jumped all over in time and location and voice (first person, then third person, then who-knows-who person).
I am a good reader and usually pretty sharp, but at the end of the book I was still trying to figure out who did what, when, to whom, and why. I think the makings of a rather good book are here, but it needs much better organizing.
