3.7/5 Goodreads

The schooner from Santa Barbara arrives at the island of San Miguel on New Year's Day, 1888. Marantha looks at the cliffs falling into the churning sea. This is the first day of her new life. Before lng, the constant wind and sheep-ravaged wasteland shatter her illusions; her husband promised paradise. As he obsessively resolves to stay - and becomes increasingly distant from her and their adopted daughter, Edith - Marantha's blighted lungs grow weaker in the dampness. Forty-two years later another family - and another bride - will arrive in San Miguel. But unyielding island is haunted by its history; by stories of isolation, the desires of stubborn men, and the unbearable burden of love

"Boyle tells an extraordinary story of human weakness and survival, with high intelligence and terrific eye for detail" - Kate Saunders, The Times
"T. C. Boyle is by far and away one of the most inventive, adventurous and accomplished fiction writers in the US today... Most of all, he is a mesmerizing storyteller" - Lionel Shriver, Financial Times
