Interesting descriptions of these women's different experiences living on an isolated island at different time periods. I kept expecting the stories to interweave in some way, but each story was isolated as well.

Two separate families' experiences on an island off the coast of California, each with aspects that drew my interest. However, I felt like I wanted to hear more about each story, and the segue between the time periods was not that smooth, so the time shift was a bit rough.
