    Description

    They were not her children. But she would protect them with her life....

    Corfu, 1943. Though they don’t know it, five-year-old Matilde and three-year-old Anna have kissed their mother for the last time. The Nazis have reached their sun-scorched home, and they are being taken to a place of safety, on the northeastern tip of the rocky island. They are to be hidden, at great risk, by kindly Agata and her husband, until the terrible war is over. 

    Matilde and Anna’s tears are soothed by Agata’s bedtime stories, but she is always alert. So far, no soldiers have ventured down the steep rocky hillside to their secret haven, but Agata knows they are constantly scouring the island for missing Jews. And then, on a day when Agata’s husband is away, a German soldier appears. 

    Corfu, 2016. Under a baking June sun, Amber and her husband arrive in Corfu from England, hoping for a fresh start. But not everyone is pleased by their arrival, and with the pressures of pregnancy, the couple grow further apart. 

    Desperate to find a sense of belonging for herself and her unborn child, Amber finds herself drawn to the local story of two little girls, left by their parents and hidden for their own protection. But there are some who would rather Amber left Corfu’s terrible history well in the past. 

    Can Amber uncover the heart-breaking truth about the two little girls, and what happened after a German soldier took a swim in the bay by their house? If she does, can the secrets of the past help her find happiness or send her running from the island, alone? 

    A gripping, heart-wrenching, and compelling listen about the shadows at the heart of the sun-drenched island of Corfu and survival against all odds. 

    Fans of Victoria Hislop's books, The Nightingale, and The Tattooist of Auschwitz will fall in love with Burning Island.

    Most Excellent Read

    Loved this book by Suzanne Goldring, as much as I did her book Eva. Hard to put down.

    Grabbed me from the beginning.

    This heartbreaking story is told over the course of two different eras. 1944 and 2016. The transitions are seamless and easy to follow. The narrator does very well to keep the reader following along. Grab your tissues and settle in! There is a curse word or two but not enough to be offensive. All around excellent read and I will look forward to more by this author.

    Secrets of the Past

    Burning Island by Suzanne Golding is a compelling listen that focuses on Corfu, Greece in 1943 and 2016. I loved how the author entwined the two timeframes in this heart-wretching listen. The imagery pulled me in immediately with the tragic storyline of good vs evil. The book has some great suspense. The new perspective of Nazi occupied Greece was eye-opening to me. Diana Croft was wonderful bringing the characters to life with her voice. She painted some vivid imagery with her voice and expressions.

    WW II Historical Fiction

    Enjoyed the book as I’m a fan of WW II historical fiction. This story goes back and forth starting w 2007 and 1944. I felt like most of the story was modern day, but the glimpse back to the war years were well written and combined in the end with the modern day characters. The author included an ending reviewing the war years for the Jews in Corfu which was insightful.

    Loves the story but long and drawn out.

    I loved the story but it was very long and drawn out. Too many chapters and could have been shortened without losing anything.

    Once I figured out how we were jumping from story to story I was hooked. One of the best books.

    It was ok.

    The story was a bit difficult to follow for the first hour. After that it got better. The narrator was ok.

    Compelling, enthralling and emotional

    Took a couple chapters to get my footing but then I was all in. Beautiful imagery and thoughtful stories.
