Island of Miracles

Katherine Middleton leads a charmed life in her million dollar Georgetown Brownstone. The daughter of a world-renown anthropologist, she is happily married and employed by the Smithsonian when her world comes crashing down after the discovery of her husband’s secret life. An impulsive decision to hide out on Virginia’s Eastern Shore, in order to re-evaluate her own life, leads Kate to earth-shattering revelations about herself, her family, and her future. Chincoteague Island, Virginia, introduces Kate to a world where people can still rely on each other, where hard work pays off, and where one’s past does not dictate the future. Island of Miracles is a story about rediscovering oneself, restoring trust, recapturing love, and relying on faith. Island of Miracles is a 2018 winner of an Illumination Award, placing it among the best Christian works of fiction of 2017.

Nothing Short of Beautiful

“Another hit from Schisler! This is the kind of story that makes me long to run away from my perfectly fine life for the sole purpose of stumbling upon something magical. We all have that wonderment of what would happen if we just let go and started over. This character captures the hope and determination of all of us who wonder what it would be like to wander a bit. The relationships between brother and sister she establishes are very loving and remind me of the bonds that are truly important in life. The portrait of island life is nothing short of beautiful, with friendly faces along the way; I want to book a vacation there myself now. I hope that she continues the story with the character of Zach, he seems like the sort of guy that has a story to tell. This a perfect book to enjoy on a brisk fall day, a late evening on the beach, or even snuggled up in your favorite sweater.” –Author Alexa Jacbos, The Dreamer, 2016

“A great romance – not as light as Whispering Vines – but certainly more suspenseful. A delightfully spun tale that takes our heroine out of the big city to come to terms with her life on the Eastern Shore of Maryland. Rather than escaping her problems, our heroine comes face-to-face with them as storms, both literal and figurative, rock her world. Of course, there is a handsome man close by to help her. I can already see the Hallmark Channel movie!” —Anne, Goodreads, 2017
