In Enchanted Islands, we have the immense pleasure of meeting Frances Conway, a smart, independent and endearing woman. Frances tells her story from many stages of life like when she was a child to when she was a teenager on the run with her best friend Rosalie. All of that leads up to the most fascinating time of her life when she is in her 50's and moves to the Galapagos Islands for a very unique reason. It's so interesting to read about her life on the islands and how she survived on very little. Throughout the story, it begins to feel like Frances is your best friend telling you the story of her life. It's charming and funny at times while still caring about the seriousness of the situation a world on the brink of World War II. I highly recommend this book for fellow lovers of historical fiction.
