Review: Lost Island

User Review  - Suzana - Goodreads

I read a lot of her books years ago and loved them. This one was borderline awful. The characters are shallow, immature, selfish and evil. Creepy and sinister, rather a disappointing read. Read full review

Review: Lost Island

User Review  - Jodi - Goodreads

A soap opera book with a vapid heroine and with a villain who is abnormally villainous. I have several Whitney books, that I picked up cheap, but I don't know if I will really be able to read them if they are all in this vein. Read full review

Common terms and phrases

About the author (1970)

Phyllis A. Whitney moved around quite a bit during her youth, from Japan to China, the Philippines, and the United States. Her first novel, for adolescents, was A Place for Ann (1942). Winner of the Grand Master Award from the Mystery Writers of America, Whitney mixes an intriguing blend of mystery and romance that has kept her fans happy for many years. Often her stories have the feel of Gothic thrillers, with brooding castles and old family secrets hidden away. Often her protagonists are strong, even liberated, women who are intent on uncovering the mysteries. Whitney, who loves writing, strives to create escapist plots but balances them with realistic female characters with whom her readers can identify.
