Review - The Castaways by Elin Hilderbrand
About the Author
Elin Hilderbrand lives on Nantucket with her husband and their three young children. She grew up in Collegeville, Pennsylvania, and traveled extensively before settling on Nantucket, which has been the setting for her five previous novels. Hilderbrand is a graduate of Johns Hopkins University and the graduate fiction workshop at the University of Iowa.
I truly enjoyed this story and had a hard time putting the book down at bedtime. Elin wove such a interesting story and had you fascinated by how all of these individuals were intertwined on so many levels. I loved that they had a close knit group who spent so much time in one another's lives and really enjoyed each others company, they were a family through friendship. I give this book a thumbs up and I will be on the lookout for more of Elin Hilderbrand.
I would like to thank Hatchette Book Group for providing me a complimentary copy of this book to read for my honest review.
