A passionate, off-beat love story set on the bleak and beautiful island of North Uist in the Outer Hebrides.
Rose Leonard is on the run from her life. Haunted by her turbulent past, she takes refuge in a remote Hebridean island community where she cocoons herself in work, silence and solitude in a house by the sea. A new life and new love are offered by friends, her estranged daughter and most of all by Calum, a fragile younger man who has his own demons to exorcise. But does Rose, with her tenuous hold on sanity, have the courage to say “Yes” to life and put her past behind her?
“The emotional power makes this reviewer reflect on how Charlotte and Emily Bronte might have written if they were living and writing now.”
“Complex and important issues are played out in the windswept beauty of a Hebridean island setting, with a hero who is definitely in the Mr Darcy league!”
From start to finish I was completely hooked! I fell in love with the characters and Cauldstane Castle within the first few pages.
The author creates such a chilling atmosphere at times I had to literally put the book down for a few moments to remember I wasn't actually part of the story.
Even though I was a little disappointed with the ending, I felt like it fizzled out a bit; having said that I would still read it again because of its intensity throughout.
A very enjoyable ebook! Do not hesitate to give this one a go.
