The Island by Victoria Hislop
Aptly named for a summer read – ‘The Island’ immediately conjures up images of sun drenched beaches and glistening seas. Spinalonga? The Island in question however is not fictional; it’s a real place with an intriguing history: Greece’s official national Leper colony until 1957.
The main character Alexis, an educated young woman, is at a crossroads in her life and decides to delve into her family background to see if the past can influence her decisions in the future. She discovers a tale of sadness and hope, family tension and dramas; more importantly, why her mother was always reticent about talking about her background.
A book with two stories, equally fascinating and captivating – well worth packing in your suitcase!
Exams over dissertaions, presentations and assignments all safely handed in? Thoughts turning towards long lazy days in sun? Well this month's Books Unlocked theme is summer reads. Those books you can lose yourself in while sitting in the garden on the beach or even at home. Look out for the displays at the Luton and Bedford. This is Luton LRC's display
