About this deal

This is an engaging story of two best friends and their quest for happiness, with a sprinkling of humour along the way. destinations that are known to me, so knew exactly what was meant whilst in Surrey and knew exactly where Octavian was headed in Sardinia. From the synopsis I was expecting this novel to be entirely about Octavia and assumed that Roberta would take a back seat in the actual story, but it turns out I was very much mistaken with this as the story is actually told in alternating chapters between the two women. Octavia didn’t hesitate to take Roberta and her daughter in, although it meant more chaos for her family of five plus a mother.

I have to say it wasn't that bad but bear in mind that everything you eat from is plastic and people just wonder around in there swim wear with no shoes on. I really tried to analyze them and one minute I would feel like Roberta type, next I would recognize myself in Octavia.Roberta was more posh and came from a "better" family, and she behaved differently, she was more stiff and tense.

I know it sounds harsh but he was incredibly unlikeable - was Jonathan, Octavia's husband (I know, right?We were on deck 9 at the rear of the ship and felt every movement and the loud clanging noise that accompanied every sway was horrific and made trying to sleep a nightmare!

To avoid increased costs for heating and since Ocean Gala did not comply with Finnish-Swedish Ice Class Rules, the vessel left the port 3 November 2016. They seem like ladies I would love to hang out with, talking about our kids, what they're going through in school and each of our little daily troubles.

The Island Escape' is the second novel by Ms Fisher and one I've been really looking forward to reading.
