Lesbian Book Review of ‘In the palm’ by Elna Holst.
I’ve absolutely loved this book, it’s got everything in one very well-written package: adventure, mystery, and romance. The story is a very loose retelling of Robinson Crusoe, starting with a punch. A woman is stranded in an isolated island with no recollection of who she is and how she got there and with the only certainty that, if she wants to survive, she needs to amputate one of her hands.
As the story develops, the main character and the reader are slowly clued on the real identity and the mystery surrounding her. Getting into more detail will only spoil it for others so I’m only going to say that this journey of discovery is very entertaining and packed with action, romance and hotness and it finishes with a great twist at the end. This lesbian adventure and romance got me in the palm of its hand from the start (yes, bad pun intended).
Overall, a very well written romance/adventure novel that makes an entertaining read. 4.5 stars.
