I enjoyed reading Wisdom by Heather Neff. I was initially drawn to the novel by the serenity of the novel's front cover. What I imagined was a light-hearted "island romance", was a magical tale with many well-crafted twists and turns. The book effectively uncovers the underlying tensions that exists within what appears to be a tropical oasis and allows us to see the reality of island living from two perspectives. The characters were believable. The plot, a love story, a mystery and suspense story, was intricate enough that it kept me turning the pages. A decent read!
