Stranded by Emily Barr - book review
She leaves her daughter Daisy at home and she is the sole reason that she wants to return in one piece; she wants to be able to prove to Daisy that she can be the mother that she deserves.
A day trip to a deserted island turns into Esther's worst stranded emily barr when the guide does not return to pick up her and the other travellers. Not that night, not the next day, not the next week.

Emily Barr's writing style still carried me through, and I did enjoy reading the book, but by the end I did have an 'oh really?
