Opportunity: Teacher needed in one-room schoolhouse on remote island in Maine. Certification in grades K-8 a must.
Julie Weathers isn't sure if she's running away or starting over, but moving to a remote island off the coast of Maine feels right for someone with reasons to flee her old life. The sun-washed, sea-stormed speck of land seems welcoming, the lobster plentiful, and the community close and tightly knit. She finds friends in her nearest neighbor and Callum, a man who appears to be using the island for the same thing as she: escape.
But as Julie takes on the challenge of teaching the island's children, she comes to suspect that she may have traded one place shrouded in trouble for another, and she begins to wonder if the greatest danger on Mercy Island is its lost location far out to sea, or the people who live there.

This was a moderately engaging read. There were some gender-based tropes—damsel in distress, mysterious sullen bad boy—that were annoying and pulled you out of the story.

I used my free VIP credit to purchase this book! I would not have purchased this book with my regular credit. Although the storyline was interesting, the book was fairly predictable. I am glad I listened to it however.
