This is a perfect romance novel with travel notes
Where does The Island Hideaway rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?
Very high in the category of interesting novels with a background in Italy.
Who was your favorite character and why?
Eleanor because she is realistically interesting and a unique character.
What about Antonia Beamish’s performance did you like?
I liked the soft resonance of her voice. I liked that she did not "overact" the various voices when reading dialogue. She is talented.
Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?
Quite a few, actually. I liked Eleanor's initial encounter with Franny. I liked the scene on the hydropo boat over to Siciliy with Lewis. Moments with Natalie, the nymphet were thoroughly believable and well-characterized.
Any additional comments?
This book made me happy, engaged and not wanting it to end. I also greatly appreciated that the author did not "wrap it all up" with a traditional ending. It was a very good and happy-making read. The descriptions of the islands were priceless.
