"Some books stay with a reader longer than others and Island Girl by Lynda Simmons is an extraordinary beautiful and deeply emotional book about a mother’s love of her home, her family, and the battle against time. Island Girl is most definitely not a beach read, rather it is an emotional story with the protagonist, Ruby Donaldson being diagnosed with Alzheimer’s disease and suddenly must face reality and get her family sorted out before she no longer is capable of remembering them"
