Eight strangers. One island. A secret you’d kill to keep.
When eight people arrive on the beautiful but remote Buidseach Island, they are ready for the challenge of a lifetime: to live alone for one year.
Eighteen months later, a woman is found in an isolated fishing village. She’s desperate to explain what happened to her. How the group fractured and friends became enemies. How they did what they must to survive until the boat came to collect them; how things turned deadly when the boat didn’t come.
But first she must come to terms with the devastating secret that left them stranded, and her own role in the events that saw eight arrive and only three leave…
A gripping, twisty page-turner about secrets, lies and survival at all costs. Perfect for fans of The Castaways, The Sanitorium and One by One.
I’ve read and reviewed this debut book of Sarah Goodwin a month ago, and I absolutely enjoyed it, so I thought it’d be great for you guys to check it out since it is now available for purchase online! This is also the author’s debut book, so your support would definitely mean a lot!
It has a “Lord of the Flies” feel, with the whole power-grabbing, and we see here how wicked people could get and the things they’re willing to do to survive. I just couldn’t put it down. It’s very engaging, exciting, frightening, and just a whole lot entertaining. Please read my full review here.

About the Author
Sarah Goodwin is a novelist who grew up in rural Hertfordshire. She was raised on ‘The Good Life’ ‘Anne of Green Gables’ and ‘Little House on the Prairie’ by her parents, who turned a blind eye to her dabbling in herbal medicine, feminism, eco-warrior ideals and witchcraft. They were understandably unsurprised when she developed the lifetime ambition of building a hut in the woods and living there like a soothsayer.
Her second preferred career, was author.
At Bath Spa University Sarah studied for a BA in Creative Writing and self-published many novels across various genres, including YA magical realism, contemporary women’s fiction, romance and horror.
Sarah graduated in 2014 with an MA in Creative Writing from Bath Spa University. After writing several historical novels, she decided to return to her roots and write instead about the wild, the darkness and survival, which led to her coming up with the idea for ‘Stranded’ which would become her first professionally published novel.
