An Island In The Sun by Kate Frost

Escaping A Grey Winter’s Day

An Island In The Sun by Kate Frost is a charming contemporary novel that will add warmth and brightness to the gloomy grey days of winter as we escape to sun and heat.

The Mediterranean climate comes alive under Kate Frost’s pen as we can almost ‘see’ the heat shimmer. Her descriptions tempt the senses as we travel through the novel.

Pet sitting enables a character to escape not only the climate of Britain but to run from painful circumstances too. Adoring the two King Charles Spaniels and a cat enables the healing process to begin.

The antidote to a broken heart is forgiveness. In order to fully heal and move forward, forgiveness must be given. Without it, we will remain trapped in the past in a prison of bitterness.

We witness fractured relationships – a son has a difficult relationship with his parents but a great one with his former babysitter. He has had all the privileges that money can buy – but love has eluded him.

Never judge by appearances. Things are rarely as they seem on the surface. Care and understanding as well as open conversations are needed.

I thoroughly enjoyed An Island In The Sun. It was the perfect escape from a grey day in winter as the sun shone from the pages and into my heart.

I received a free copy via Rachel’s Random Resources for a blog tour. A favourable review was not required. All opinions are my own.
