Product description


Tayar brings to this beautifully woven family reunion a heart filled with empathy and compassion for her characters --Alfred Garrotto, author of The Wisdom of Les Miserables

Readers of Tayar's very readable memoir, How Shall We Sing?, will see the germs of the present novel in the earlier book. In both books the writing is vivid, but in Island of Dreams skilful story-telling is combined with psychological depth. --Paul Xuereb, Sunday Times of Malta

The author has a controlled use of language, detachment and a sense of humour. The psychology of the characters and the social context of their community are beautifully depicted. --Dominique Seytre, Journalist
