The whole book really came to life for me when the story moved to Innishmahon – although I must say there was plenty to keep me gripped into the early hours in what came before, as well as some real shocks and surprises, and quite a few tears. But I just loved the island community and its vividly drawn characters: it’s an immense achievement to make a reader care so much about a diverse (even strange?) collection of people, every one beautifully rounded with a back story of their own, all coming together to support each other through a whole range of problems, whether small and personal or cataclysmic and life-threatening.
The central love story is totally engrossing as it ebbs and flows and sometimes founders – fraught with misunderstanding and breakdowns in communication, quite agonising at times, but totally beautiful when everything comes together. And should you think that a relationship between a journalist and reclusive movie star seems a tad unlikely and far-fetched, it most certainly isn’t – every moment is absolutely real, believable and touches your heart.Read more ›
It's at the awards she meets dependable George Brownlow MP. With a twist, destiny plunges Marianne through a series of cruel disasters and it's not until she decides to take a break and escape to the Island of Innishmahon off of the Irish coast, that she begins to mend her emotional wounds. The people of the island are so welcoming; Padar and Oonagh Quinn who run the pub, Miss MacReady the postmistress and Father Gregory.
Marianne finds another person on the island is also there to find himself and escape from life. Ryan O'Gorman, TV star, once saved Marianne's life, now he's here saving more lives when a storm hits and families need rescuing. He doesn't want to be remembered as a hero he wants to be a writer, but life in the fast lane pulls him away from the island and Marianne.
Stormy times lay ahead for more than one character, and I'm looking forward to reading the second book in the series to see how obstacles are overcome, relationships smoothed and families are re-united. I really enjoyed Marianne's journey and easily fell in love with the people and the island of Innishmahon.
This review is based on a free copy of the book given to me by the author.
Adrienne Vaughan paints a charming picture of the locals and the life of Innishmahon, and gives us a strong, feisty and likeable character in Marianne. I found myself cheering her on, and hoping that she would eventually find happiness. There were also some really interesting sub-plots that added to the joy and the tragedy of this well-written and thoroughly enjoyable novel.
I did find the islanders perhaps a little too good to be true at times - and I wondered about the speed at which Marianne and Oonagh became such close friends. The sub-plot concerning Oonagh was particularly well written and sympathetic - however, because I liked Oonagh so much, I would have liked this to have been developed further.
On the whole though, this is a great read, perfect for a relaxing Sunday afternoon or to take with you to the beach this summer. I recommend ‘The Hollow Heart’ and will definitely be reading the follow-up, ‘A Change of Heart.’
