'Rosamunde Pilcher is, without doubt, one of the greatest storytellers of all time, and this delightful story confirms it. Thoroughly enjoyable, beautifully written, a sheer delight' Reader review ⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐

A gripping story filled with intrigue and family drama

Sitting on a California beach at summer's end, Jane Marsh finds herself reminiscing about her childhood at Elvie, an estate in a remote corner of Scotland. She remembers the heather-covered hills and the lonesome loch, but also her grandmother . . . and, of course, Sinclair. The man she secretly dreamed of marrying.

An urgent visit from her grandmother's lawyer becomes the catalyst for Jane's return to Scotland. A passion she could never have imagined awaits her . . . along with the chilling realisation that she may be ready to wed the wrong man.
