Kate’s relationship with her boyfriend has ended badly – very badly. And now her parents are taking her on holiday with them to a cottage on a remote island in the Hebrides. Kate can’t imagine anything more boring. But Kate is also scared. Her parents have been fighting and she knows that this holiday is make or break.
Once at the cottage, Kate escapes as soon as she can – outside, anywhere. And there she meets the warmth of the islanders, who are prepared to accept her and to listen to her. And possibly fall in love with her…..
I was drawn straight away to this book not because of the blurb, but because of the very pretty cover. One thing I will say is that the synopsis is a bit misleading as it says “And there she meets the islanders, who are prepared to accept her and listen to her. And possibly fall in love with her. You find out quite quickly this is never going to happen. They love her, but nobody falls in love with her, which I was disappointed with. Overall I did find the book enjoyable, it is meant for teenagers so it’s a good short story but I was left wanting more and to tie up loose ends.
