Watch Over Me is the No. 1 bestselling novel from the million copy selling author Daniela Sacerdoti, set in the magical and atmospheric Glen Avich in the Scottish Highlands.
Eilidh Lawson's life is in crisis. Years of failed fertility treatments, a cheating husband and an oppressive family have pushed her to the limits. At the end of her tether, she runs away to the one place she thinks she can find solace: her childhood home in the Highlands.
There, as she struggles to mend her broken life, she reconnects with her childhood friend Jamie McAnena, who is trying to raise his daughter Masie alone. After Maisie's mother left to pursue a career in London and Jamie's own mother, Elizabeth, passed away, he has resigned himself to being a family of two.
But sometimes there is more to a story than meets the eye. Despite their reluctance, curious circumstances keep bringing Jamie and Eilidh together. For even when it seems all is lost, help can come from the most extraordinary places.
An ethereal and beautifully written debut novel, Watch Over Me is a poignant story about letting go and moving on: with a little help from beyond the grave. Perfect for fans of Amanda Prowse, Cecelia Ahern and Nicholas Sparks.
