"Meg Mitchell Moore fills [Maeve Binchy's] big shoes....If you're
feeling landlocked and water-deprived, The Islanders is
the ticket to the getaway you need."--New York Times Book
"A beautifully in-depth novel chronicling the intersection of the lives of three strangers during one fateful summer. [Moore's] characters are strong, and the realistic situations are both heartfelt and heartbreaking. An excellent combination of character exploration and intrigue."--Booklist
"Moore's narrative is fast-paced, and her lead characters are flawed and believable. Readers looking for an emotional tale will find much to enjoy."--Publishers Weekly
