Fabulous book. A plane crashes in the Pacific, and a single American ex-bond salesman, and a French architect on her honeymoon are the only survivors. He washes up on shore with little but his contacts & she washes up a day later in a life raft with some supplies. The island has no name & because the pilot cut corners, no one is looking for them in the right area. They manage to carve out a life on the island that they dub the "Castle of Water", after a year becoming lovers, and then into year 3, parents. But Sophie's delivery goes horribly wrong...and Barry is forced to leave the island to save their daughter. Interesting beginning to each part of an American tourist visiting an art museum, until you see how it interweaves in the end.

CONTROLLED RELEASE NOTES:
Really, really good book that no one ever heard of. Adding to the Food Bookbox as a bonus book. Assuming that water is a "food" of sorts.....
Picked this up from the bookbox as the storyline sounds interesting, and also to save it for the 666 reading challenge. It's not a lot of books on French Polynesia!
