Situated in a tiny village, she finds the students are bizarre, and the curriculum even more so. The books are impossible to read, the lessons obscure to the point of maddening, and the work refuses memorization. Using terror and coercion to keep the students in line, the school does not punish them for their transgressions and failures; instead, it is their families that pay a terrible price. Yet despite her fear, Sasha undergoes changes that defy the dictates of matter and time; experiences which are nothing she has ever dreamed of . . . and suddenly all she could ever want…“
- Castle of Water: A Novel by Dane Huckelbridge <— STRANDED/CASTAWAY STORY OF SURVIVAL SUPER-BARGAIN ALERT!! Nay found this one for us and I just ONE-CLICKED IT SO HARD!!!
Nay: I’m listening to a book that was rec’d to me by one of our GR/FB friends, and it’s SO good! It’s a stranded/castaway book, but it’s not your typical stranded contemporary romance story. It’s more about how they survive and how their needs/feelings/outlook on life change and evolve in the process.
It’s called Castle of Water by Dane Huckelbridge, and I think Kristin Hannah describes it best–it’s a “unique, inventive exploration of love, loss, and survival.” I’m loving the audio book, which is in the Audible Escape program. The kindle edition is also on sale right now…
Maryse: Oooooh that’s totally my thing!!!! I LOVE survival stories like that (romance is a plus but not necessary). I love how they have to figure out to live in the elements, how they have to heal & struggle over illness…. all of it. IN BOOKS!!! Only on books. LOL! 😛

Yet all it took was that one encounter, that one moment for her to cross my path, and I was completely obsessed with her.
