The Return - Victoria Hislop

Thanks Liz, for this recommendation,

I found it a little more difficult to get into than "The Island", however when I did I found it a very interesting read.

I found the format very similar to The Island, - introduction in the present, back into the past, then back to the present, and, for me, the ending was quite predictable.
I did learn a lot from the historical content, which enlightened me to a point in history (1931 to 1939) which somehow is over shadowed by events of WW2.

The Return - Victoria Hislop

Had this on my bookshelf for ages so decided to read it - not yet finished but it's nowhere near as good as The Island. The basic story is OK, however the writing style is also pretty basic. I was quite surprised about that. Will plod on to the end hoping it gets better.
