I’ve thought long and hard about whether I should let anyone know that I’m coming to the island. But who would I tell? And what would I say? No one will even know who I am, and I think it’s better that way. This is the only way I can get the answers I need…

When Abby steps off the ferry and onto the isle of Kinlossay, she squeezes her daughter’s hand and prays this trip was not a mistake. For the last year she has been receiving letters from a mysterious stranger detailing every moment of his life on this rugged little island. Swept away by descriptions of buttercups dancing on rolling fields, his words were a lifeline to Abby, filling her grey life with colour and hope. But then, one day, the messages stopped.

Watching her daughter run laughing along the windswept beaches he described so perfectly, Abby wonders if this trip could also be a new beginning. But then she sees a face across the street that she recognises instantly, and her heart shatters. What devastating secrets has this little island been keeping? Were the letters and the feelings they shared nothing but a lie? And when the truth is revealed, will Abby run home to safety, or stay and fight for the life her daughter deserves?

Lose yourself on the wild shores of a remote island in this absolutely gripping and heart-wrenching story about holding on to hope and the incredible things we do for love. Filled with secrets and surprises, fans of Debbie Macomber, Rosanna Ley and Sheila O’Flanagan will adore this stunning and totally uplifting page-turner.
