Publisher's Summary

Alone on a deserted island in Lake Michigan, five kids learn to survive. Ages five to thirteen, they are orphans and foster children who simply want a home. No one saw them stow away on the yacht. Nor did anyone see them climb overboard and into a life raft in the middle of the night. Armed with only the meager supplies in their pockets, they learn to fish and make a shelter and even hunt. Only twelve-year-old Karen knows Jesus as her Savior. But when trouble comes, the other four find it reassuring to know that Karen is praying for help. But now, winter is coming on. Can even God help them?

It was great, until the end.

Would you listen to Island Home again? Why?

Nope! I loved the story, but the epilogue went to a different place and put a stink on the book.

Would you be willing to try another book from Sally Hull? Why or why not?

I'm not sure. Will they be extreme like that epilogue?

What about Betsie Bush’s performance did you like?

Excellent! Well done on the various voices and infections.

If you were to make a film of this book, what would the tag line be?

Don't include the epilogue!

Any additional comments?

If the epilogue would have been left out, I would have given it five stars easily.
