A sweeping and atmospheric story of family ties, interwoven mysteries, love and redemption, set between Scotland and Newfoundland, from the author of Waterstones Scottish Book of the Year The House Between Tides

1940: Wounded in action, Archie Maxwell returns to his Scottish family estate of Rosslie. But between the uneasy company of his father's new wife, and the nightmares that haunt him, he finds the house more of a battleground than a refuge.

1980: Journalist Eva Bayne arrives at Rosslie looking for a story. Since Archie's disappearance forty years ago, the Maxwells have lived in the shadows - and Eva is drawn to their mystery. Especially when a glimpse of a photograph stirs up long-buried memories of her childhood in Newfoundland . . .

Could uncovering the truth heal the wounds of Eva's past? And what will it cost for Rosslie to give up its secrets?

Praise for The Forgotten Shore: The sweeping new novel of family, secrets and forgiveness from the author of THE HOUSE BETWEEN TIDES

  • A sweeping and atmospheric story of family ties, interwoven mysteries, love and redemption, set between Scotland & Newfoundland - The Quick Book Reviews Podcast

  • A compelling read. A beautifully woven tale that crosses the continents. Atmospheric and vivid, the characters will stay with me for a long time . . .' - Sue Lawrence

  • 'The Forgotten Shore is an utterly gripping dual time story about secrets, mistakes, redemption and possible forgiveness. It features a mysteriously missing heir and a girl who's always been a bit of an outsider, and an unlikely but forbidden friendship. The book covers the horrors of war, Highland clearances, forced removal of people living in remote coastal villages in Newfoundland and various environmental issues that engage the reader. It all blends into a fabulous tapestry that will keep you spellbound until the very last page - I absolutely loved it and couldn't put it down.' - Christina Courtenay
