Ben is a young painter from the crowded, turbulent city. For six months his fiancée Cara has been living on the remote island of Sanctuary Rock, the property of millionaire philanthropist Sir John Pemberley. Now she has decided to break off their engagement and stay there for good.
Ben resolves to travel to the island to win Cara back. But the journey there is a harsh and challenging one, and when he does arrive, a terrible shock awaits him.
As Ben begins to find his way around Pemberley’s perfect island, he knows he must also discover – what has made Cara so determined to throw her old life away? And is Sanctuary Rock truly a second Eden, as the mysterious Sir John claims – or a prospect of hell?
The story is about Ben and his life, his fiancée has been living on a remote island and she has decided to break of their engagement and stay there for good. But Ben doesn’t want that and tries to get to her on a perilous journey to discover a tragedy. Ben decides to try and work out what is going on here on this island and it is not what it seems. I thought I would enjoy this book, but unfortunately I didn’t, I found it very slow and repetitive and I didn’t feel as though I cared for any of the characters. The story for me didn’t really capture my attention either. It could of been a good read but really lacked something.
I received an ARC copy of this book for an honest review.
