From the bestselling author of The Italian Villa and Watch Over Me, a beautiful, heartrending story of finding love against all odds. Perfect for anyone who loves Fiona Valpy and Lily Graham. ‘Atmospheric, romantic and compelling. Daniela writes with huge warmth and sincerity’ Rosanna Ley
After her mother dies, heartbroken Cora discovers she has been left a cottage on a remote Scottish isle called Seal. The moment she arrives, she falls under the island’s spell… and finds herself drawn to a brooding stranger.
For wanderer Innes, returning to the island means confronting the demons of his past. He knows he can’t offer beautiful Cora anything more than a collection of moments – yet he can’t deny the immediate intensity of their connection.
As Cora begins to trace her mother’s roots, she learns Gealach Cottage has a turbulent history. Another young woman had sought refuge here, waiting for her lover to return. What became of her? Only by unravelling a forgotten story of passion and courage can Cora understand what has pulled her to Seal… and to a man who feels like home.
