In her bestselling books, Anne Rivers Siddons can be counted on for strong narratives, old-fashioned values, and vividly described settings. ISLANDS, her 15th novel, is no exception. The focus here is a wealthy clique in Charleston, South Carolina--Siddons's usual milieu--and a woman named Anny Butler who marries into it. When Lewis Aiken, a surgeon, falls in love with Anny, who runs a philanthropic agency, he instantly renounces his womanizing past, and Anny finds in her idyllic marriage a secure haven and a supportive group of friends for the first time in her life. Tragedy intervenes, age encroaches, difficulties abound, but the group coheres, and Anny draws strength from the continuity and the tradition with which they are blessed.
