This is a beautifully written story by a writer with a powerful and individual voice. The story twists and turns, from the present to the past, and is a journey in more ways than one. Difficult subjects are handled incredibly sensitively and the research is impeccable.

I found myself re-reading passages and just letting the words roll over me, as they pulled me right into the heart of the scenes. I could almost see, touch and feel the settings and raw emotions. I'd highly recommend you lose yourself in Islands.

Nice to read a book and to actually live in the area. When you read it it feels so real. It has a different feel to normal fiction. I felt as if I was actually part of it looking in. Quite emotional in parts. Recommend you read this, will be buying Gwyn`s crime story now.
Fantastic book!!!

Just finished reading this book at 2 a.m., quite a twist at the end, and left me feeling I wanted to know what happened to Katherine and John next. Will certainly look forward to reading more from Gwyn gb.

As a regular visitor to Jersey, this book held interesting memories. Well written interlacing the real events of what happened along with a fictional family who could so easily have been involved. I couldn't put it down

I enjoyed the Jersey link to this book. The way the whole story was based around the true, historic, abuse at Haut de la Garenne. Very topical as a truth which never went away.

A great read. Bought the paperback and took it on holiday to read and go so absorbed I couldn't put it down once I started! Looking forward to Gwyn GB's next book.
