What ensues during the next eighteen days, as they learn to live on the island and plan for an inevitable invasion by the Japanese makes for a fast paced, engrossing read. Shors is a master storyteller, penning breathless action scenes equally as well as incredible breath-taking romance. The characters are authentic and endearing. I find myself continuing to think of them even after finishing the book. There is something in this book for everyone. I loved it. And I must say a word about the gorgeous cover, somehow, having such a beautiful cover makes the book that much better.
I don’t hand out 5 stars easily, but this book earns every one of them.
5 stars (Rated PG-13 for mild sex and violence)
