Editorial Reviews

Library Journal - Library Journal
Victorian heroine Annalice Mallory, discovering the journal of her long-dead relative Ann Alice, sets off a chain of events that will change her life. She feels intense identification with the young girl, who was clearly murdered, but also, as a daughter of a mapmaking family, she is intrigued by the ``paradise island'' discovered by Ann Alice's lover. Using the map found with the journal, Annalice's brother goes off to locate the island. When no word is heard from him, Annalice pursues him to Australia. She finds romance and danger, as the apparently nonexistent island still has power to incite greed and murder. Typical Holt fare for public libraries. Literary Guild dual main selection.

This is the first Victoria Holt I read and I was totally captivated by it. She has the ability to draw you into the story from the first couple of pages, something hard to find nowadays. The story revolves around Annalice, a young girl who finds the diary of one of her ancestors. In it she finds a map to an island with many riches. Her brother sets out to find it but never returns. Determined to find out what happened, Annalice goes as well. There she finds the truth and also love. This book is truly enthralling.

This love/suspense novel is one of the best ever written in the 19th century. A novel where you find everything that you need to satisfy constantly your desire or appettite for reading, and reading, as a never stopping hobbie.
