Enchanted Islands by Allison Amend

“Even large worlds have small islands,” I responded. “I prefer to say ‘see you’. You never know.” p.242

4.4/5

I think the story wasn’t what I expected it to be at first; I thought it was about magical islands and strange creatures! 🐡🐠🐛🦄

🌴

It turned out to be a part historical fiction of the WWII mixed with a sprinkle of imagination. Frances Frankowski and Rosalie Mendal are two peas ✌🏻️ in a pod! Inseparable, that is, until Rosalie betrays Frances. Devastated, Frances flees, and that’s when the real living starts for her, who is used to being invisible.

🌴

Frances escapes to Nebraska to create a new life, and meets this agent. Charming, funny, hardworking and intelligent, there’s nothing not to like! But there’s something about him she doesn’t know yet.

🌴

Frances undoubtedly falls for him and sets herself up for a lifetime of adventure ✨ when they become a pair of unassuming spies 🕴🕴 on the Galapagos islands 🌊 in Ecuador for the US military. 

🌴

A story of realism, hope deferred, love, magic and friendship 💕

Curiosity level: 😿 (moving)
