Lovely Jackson is a descendant of slaves who first inhabited Dark Isle. Now a developer wants to build on the island setting off a law suit between the two parties. The history of the slaves who first lived on the island was to me, the most interesting portion of the book. This book is not up to John Grisham's usual legal thrillers nor is it a page turner. It's an ok book & story but not great. ( )

Professor/author Mercer Mann is getting married . . . on Camino Island beach. Hence the “no shoes” caveat. But before she and her new husband, Thomas, leave for their honeymoon in Scotland, bookseller Bruce Cable wants to talk with Mercer. He has an idea for a book . . . .

Dark Isle, an uninhabited island between Georgia and Florida, [one that the local folks believe is cursed], has caught a developer’s eye and, with some political maneuvering, it looks like the small barrier island will be turned into a resort.

But Lovely Jackson, the last living inhabitant of Dark Isle, claims ownership of the island. Can her claim be proved?

And just what is the history of Dark Isle?

=========

Third in the author’s Camino Island series, the book has sufficient backstory to work as a standalone [but the ongoing development of the central characters as revealed in the earlier books provides additional insight for the reader].

The book moves between the present day and the island’s past as a shelter for escaped slaves. As their unfolding stories expose horrific atrocities, violence, and abhorrent acts, the history of Dark Isle is revealed in the stories from the earliest days of slavery. As readers might expect, the emotional impact in the telling of this tale is significant.

Compelling, intriguing, and captivating, “Camino Ghosts” keeps readers spellbound as its unfolding narrative reveals that dark history and seamlessly weaves it into an extraordinary mystery for the present day. Readers will find much to appreciate in this unputdownable, thought-provoking tale.

Highly recommended. ( )

Slaves inhabited an island off coast of Florida. The last survivor claims ownership. A big real estate developer threatens her claim. ( )

Human interest story with a few legal touches. IT is the story of forcibly displaced Africans who create a new home as free people along the northeastern Florida coast. IT includes some witchcraft and an avaricious Florida developer. The principal protagonists are a descendant of the slaves and a novelist who is inspired to tell the story of the island. ( )

Lovely Jackson is descended from slaves who made their way to Dark Isle to live in freedom. When Tidal Breeze, corporate America attempts to claim ownership of Dark Isle in order to develop it, Lovely goes to court. The John Grisham of today is not the same John Grisham of The Firm. ( )
