About the book:
It is 1913. Elsa Pendleton travels from England to Easter Island with her husband, an anthropologist sent by the Royal Geographical Society to study the colossal moai statues, and her younger sister. What begins as familial duty for Elsa becomes a grand adventure; on Easter Island she discovers her true calling. But, out of contact with the outside world, she is unaware that World War I has been declared and that a German naval squadron, fleeing the British across the South Pacific, is heading toward the island she now considers home.

Sixty years later, Dr. Greer Farraday, an American botanist, travels to Easter Island to research the island's ancient pollen, but more important, to put back the pieces of her life after the death of her husband.

My Review:
I do enjoy reading books set on islands. Takes me back to my time living in Kiribati back in 2014/15.
This was a highly engrossing novel - a blend of fact and fiction according to the author’s note.
I enjoyed this greatly.

I loved this. I liked the blend of the two stories and was equally interested in both threads - which is not always the case with two strands set in different times. I liked that you weren't quite sure what happened in some parts. Thanks for this one. I'll probably keep for a bookbox or sweeps.
