Write Review

Rated 0

Modern & contemporary fiction (post c 1945)

From the Sunday Times bestselling author of THE LIDO comes an uplifting new story about friendship, community and finding where you truly belong.

'A wonderfully evocative and enveloping novel about the joys and comforts of community and friendship and a perfect, warm escape from these cold, dark times' Kate Eberlen, bestselling author of Miss You

'A tender, life-affirming story bursting with hope and heart' Cathy Bramley, bestselling author of A Patchwork Family


Lorna's world is small but safe.

She loves her daughter, and the two of them is all that matters. But after nearly twenty years, she and Ella are suddenly leaving London for the Isle of Kip, the tiny remote Scottish island where Lorna grew up.

Alice's world is tiny but full.

She loves the community on Kip, her yoga classes drawing women across the tiny island together. Now Lorna's arrival might help their family finally mend itself - even if forgiveness means returning to the past...

So with two decades, hundreds of miles and a lifetime's worth of secrets between Lorna and the island, can coming home mean starting again?
