Island in the Sea of Time by SM Stirling. Although this book is probably better for fans of time-travel and alternative history it suprised me how much i liked it. Not exactly a "Lost" type plot but worth a read.

It's nonfiction, by I liked "Castaway" by Lucy Irving.  although I found it odd that she knew how to distill water at the beginning of the book and apparently forgot all about it while on the island...
