    "Lighthouse Island is a wild ride of a novel that combines a dystopian novel with fantasy, adventure and mystery. Author Paulette Jiles has had other books become best sellers but this is probably my favorite book of hers. "

    "I have read several books by Paulette Jiles, but this one is by far my favorite. I think the writing is exceptional. When I read it I feel transported to 1863. The characters are real and easy to relate too despite the book not being set in modern times."

    "A friend from Canada recommended this. I was skeptical because I have no background about native people from that area, it turns out this is a really interesting relatable story. Solid read."

    "Cousins is a rare book, as in it's hard to get your hands on a copy. It's a personal, feminine book. Some will find it deep and others won't be interested."
