A gorgeous, melancholy love story * The Times *
An undeniably haunting love story. * Sunday Times *
Desperately romantic, lyrically written and with a fascinating plot. * Katie Fforde, author of A Rose Petal Summer *
I loved this book. Beautifully written and descriptive... The twisted threads weave an engaging plot which takes us on a trail of human courage and measures the cost of betrayal. Set in the last poignant years of life on remote St Kilda and in war-torn Europe, it paints both worlds with a vividness that is wholly convincing. * Sarah Maine, author of The House Between Tides *
The characters are exquisitely drawn, and the slowly emerging love story rings entirely true. This is one of the best novels I've read in a long while, a real jewel. * Gill Paul, author of The Secret Wife *
The wild beauty and intense isolation of the Scottish island of St Kilda is vividly realised... As gorgeously written as it's quietly devastating. * Kate Riordan, author of The Girl in the Photograph *
This is not only a love story between two people, but also between an island and its inhabitants. Richly detailed and evocative, the novel shines a light on the fascinating history of St Kilda, and the last community to call it home. * Kat Gordon, author of An Unsuitable Woman *
Such an atmospheric read and very moving. Two pieces of forgotten history woven immaculately. * Lorna Cook, author of The Forgotten Village *
A compelling love story set against the dramatic backdrops of a remote Scottish island and war-torn France. As beautiful and haunting as St Kilda itself, this is a book that will stay with me for a long time. * Gill Thompson, author of The Oceans Between Us *
A beautifully written and heart-rending story of love, loss and redemption. * Sophia Tobin, author of The Silversmith's Wife *
A glorious novel. You won't be able to put it down for a minute. * Suellen Dainty, author of The Housekeeper *
A moving story simply and beautifully told. * Tim Pears, author of The Redeemed *
Days after finishing this deeply moving story, written with such a simple yet lyrical prose, I still feel haunted by it. * New Books Magazine *
A compelling love story, meticulously researched and beautifully told. The sense of place is vivid, and the descriptions are so powerful that you can almost feel the chilly whistle of the wind. A haunting novel that lingers long in the imagination. * Church Times *
