A novel of Sable Island. “Isabel Jardine was an extraordinarywoman , to whom the marriage ceremony was a mockery, but, wanting a means of escape from the drab monotony of her life, she married Matthew Carney and went with him to Marino, a lonely windswept island in the Atlantic. The only woman on the island, Isabel found herself wanted – desired -- by every one of the strong, bronzed men who lived like monks in Marina's barren wilderness and here she shed her inhibitions as if they were a cloak. Thomas Raddall has written a powerful story — of love and hate; of tenderness and cruelty and suffering, and through these elements the lives of two people are brought to o dramatic climax.” (from the back cover).
