Abby is receiving letters from a mysterious stranger, filled with every little detail of his life on a quaint island.  But then, the letters stop coming and so, Abby and her daughter, Beth travel to  Kinlossay.  Abby has to find Cam, the person that has been sending the letters, but when she arrives on the island, she hopes she isn’t making a mistake.  Abby ventures out to to find out why the man she has never met before, and has become very fond of, has stopped sending her letters.  But, is there truth in the secrets that she has been reading about in the letters?  And who really is this man that has been sending them to her?  

This is escapism at its best. This story takes place in Cambridge, England, Scotland and the UK.  I loved that Abby owned and ran a bookshop, it really personalized the characters.  I was originally drawn to this book by the stunningly beautiful cover, but as soon as I opened the book and read the first page, couldn’t put it down.  I loved this story from beginning to end. 

Thank you Emma Davies  for another emotional and inspiring story.  This unforgettable story is beautifully written and engaging and one that pulls at your heartstrings.  This must read is sure to be one of your favorites.  The characters were relatable and I highly recommend this book, it was absolutely amazing.

I catch sight of a familiar face across the street, and my breath stops. I’m not sure any answers he can give me will mend my shattered heart – but I need them anyway. This island has kept its secrets long enough.

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. But then, one day, the messages stopped.

Perhaps Abby should have forgotten about the man who gave her hope again, but she’s learned the hard way that she needs to make her own luck in life. She knows what she felt as she read those letters and she owes it to herself and her daughter to find out the truth.

But what if the truth means discovering that nothing about the man you thought you knew is real? When the secret of the island is revealed, will Abby run home to safety, or stay and fight for the life her daughter deserves?


Hello, a little bit about me ……

Before we go any further there are two things you need to know: One – I love singing loudly in the car, and Two – I have a passion for Pringles.

If you’re happy with both these things then please feel free to read on ….

Once upon a time I worked in a design agency where I was asked to write an amusing caption to go beside my details on their website. I wrote ‘I am a best selling novelist currently masquerading as a thirty something mother of three.’

Well I’m now a fifty something mother of three and am happy to report the rest came true. I’m a member of The Romantic Novelists’ Association, and live with my husband and children in rural Shropshire. I write in the gaps between real life.
