Review of Beloved Castaway

In Beloved Castaway, Kathleen Y’Barbo has created a story set in the early days of New Orleans that will grip your interest from the very first moment Josiah Carter and Isabelle Gayarre meet. Sparks literally fly as the boat on which they are to sail is threatened by fire in the harbor. Once the ship is at sea, Isabelle assists in the care of those injured in the fire. Adventures greet the reader as Kathleen weaves a tale of two young women and the man who is destined to change their lives. From a threat by fire to a ship wreck in waters off Florida, unforgettable characters work their way into the reader’s heart and soul. Josiah and Isabelle are the most unlikely couple, but with God’s guidance they find a way to survive and admit their love with a few surprises along the way. You don’t want to miss this one.

I read Beloved Castaway last month. Couldn't put it down! Fast paced and full of action. Kathleen gives life to her characters. All y'all (in Texas, that's plural for y'all) will just love it.

I love, love stories. And being from the island of St. Maarten, I love boats and islands. So I have material to help my imagination along. But a good book always makes my imagination run. I look forward to reading this one. Please enter me in your drawing. Thanks TK. vcw1476 at gmail dot come.
