Island-in-waiting

(1979)
A novel by

 
Chloe Winter has always been the black sheep in her high achieving family.

And once more she finds herself running from her problems, this time to stay with her brother, Hugo, on the Isle of Man.

While at the airport she finds herself irresistibly drawn to a stranger. He seems strongly familiar, and yet she knows they have never met before.

When she reaches the island, her sense of deja-vu intensifies. Her parents told her she has never been here before, but she is sure she has.

Chloe has long been haunted by 'special' dreams.

At the age of sixteen she volunteered to go up on stage during a hypnotist act, but after putting her under, he couldn't revive her, and she remained in a coma for three days.

Since then her dreams have been getting more and more vivid.

And after arriving on the island, she realises they are starting to come true...

As she learns more about the ancient Norse legends associated with the island, Chloe feels herself being drawn into the mystical prehistoric forces.

And when Hugo introduces Chloe to Ray Ketteringham, the local art master, things start to get even stranger.

She feels instantly hypnotised by him, and he seems to feel the same way...

As her dreams start to get darker, things take a sinister turn.

Has Chloe met Ray before?

And can she control her dreams?

Or will her connection to the mysterious island end up destroying her... ?
