Five men survive a South Seas shipwreck and wash up on a seemingly deserted beach, only to discover that five beautiful, winged women inhabit the island. Dazzled and soon in love, the men will do anything to possess these flying women . . . but what they plan, and how the magical women respond, is tellingly—and predictably—human. 

First published in 1914, and praised by Ursula K. LeGuin as “a real rediscovery—romantic, satiric, funny, fanciful, and a good read,” Angel Island is an adventure story and a genre-defining tale about women’s rights. 

Inez Haynes Gillmore (1873–1970) was born in Brazil, but grew up in Boston. Gillmore became involved in the suffrage movement while studying at Radcliffe College, and would later become the first fiction editor of the left-wing magazine The Masses. Always active in writers' organizations, she presided over the Authors' Guild from 1925 to1928.
