The Castaways by Elin Hilderbrand review and Giveaway



On the Back

With rumors of infidelity straining Greg and Tess MacAvoy’s marriage, the couple head out on their sailboat one early summer day to celebrate their wedding anniversary, hoping the roughest waters are behind them. But in an accident off Nantucket, they mysteriously drown, leaving behind two small children as well as the three couples who have long been their closest friends. Tragedy brings to the surface long-simmering conflicts and emotions, and the MacAvoys’ six grieving friends find themselves unprepared for the revelation of secret upon secret as they struggle to answer the question: What happened to Greg and Tess? The Castaways probes the boundaries of friendship and forgiveness as it tells a page-turning story of passion, betrayal, and suspense, filled with the perfect details of summer island life that have made Elin Hilderbrand’s novels beloved bestsellers.

My Thoughts

The beginning of this book was very confusing for me. It jumped from character to character and I had a very hard time trying to tie them all together. But, at the same time it was very thrilling. I mean it started off with a husband and wife dying in a boating accident. The book was about eight best friends and how their lives intertwined; and boy did they. I was beginning to think that there was no such thing as a happy marriage or even a happy person for that matter in the entire book. The Castaways was a good book and I enjoyed it immensely (once I started to understand who was who) but I do wish that the beginning was a little clearer and I also did not like how abruptly it ended. I guess I just expected a bit more. Overall it was a good read and I would enjoy reading other books written by this Author!
