    DOC Ý READER Red Island House´ SRLLTD Red Island House “For all of them Madagascar has become not just the nostalgic lost land of childhood holidays but also the country of secrets and silence” Thank you to Netgalley and Scribner for the arc of Red Island House by Andrea Lee Red Island House is the story of a vacation home in Madagascar and how the time there impacts Shay and her family over decades Red Island House was an ambitious undertaking — trying to show how foreigners are impacted by time spent in Madagascar but for me it was a bit of a miss Whenever a an overarching story is told through several smaller tales all of them must be of eual interest or else the reader can be left comparing one section to the next rather than enjoying them Some of the chapters of this book were amazing but others were just plain hard to get through Over all this one gets 3 stars from me
