Summary
Anna Emerson is a thirty-year-old English teacher desperately in need of adventure, so she jumps at the chance to spend the summer on a tropical island tutoring sixteen-year-old T.J. Callahan. But when their plane crashes, they find themselves stranded on an uninhabited island. At first, their only thought is survival--but as the days turn to weeks, and then months, greater obstacles occur: violent tropical storms, dangers lurking in the sea, and the possibility that T.J.'s cancer could return. But when rescue finally arrives years later, Anna begins to wonder if the biggest challenge of all might be returning to the real world after all that occurred on the island.
Summary
Stranded on an uninhabited island after their private plane crashes, thirty-year-old Anna Emerson and sixteen-year-old T.J. Callahan, her tutee, struggle to survive and, as the months pass, slowly fall in love
