This is the first book I have read by Posie Graeme-Evans and she definitely has my attention! I just adore a compelling tale that the real world just falls away as I find myself immersed in the story. The Island House did just that. Two different times are told but in a fashion that the reader can easily follow along. Freya and Signy are extraordinary characters, doing the best they can with the hand that fate has dealt them. Both have tragedy in their lives and both have made life changing choices. Across time, ancient secrets are unearthed, a young romance travels south and the lure of a Viking treasure culls many.

If you enjoy a story prolific with historical details, archaeology, ancient secrets, unforgettable characters and sensational writing, you will want to pick up The Island House today. Definitely not to be missed!!

This was a solid 4-star book until I got to the end. I'm not sure if the author intended for the book's ending to be so disjointed, but for me it was unsatisfying. None the less, I still enjoyed the book and recommend it to those who enjoy some history, intrigue and romance.
