San Miguel, by T.C. Boyle.

This is the story of two women who can’t leave the title island fast enough and one who has to be dragged, kicking and screaming (and in mourning) away, over the course of several generations.  (Or is it the story of the island itself?)  Life is difficult and remote here, living among bleating sheep and battering winds.  For some, paradise, for others, prison.
