Heather Forester is losing her grip on reality. She turns up at the airport to meet her pilot husband, Brett - and then she remembers: he's not coming back. Brett died months ago, leaving her lost in the crippling, confusing maze of widowhood.
Now alone with her seven-year-old twins, Heather craves the support of her mother and brother, who are halfway across the world in Scotland. But when she moves her fractured family to her homeland, their lives change in ways she never could have anticipated.
As her children struggle to fit in to their new home, family, and school, Heather also wrestles with the painful truth that she has become a stranger in her own hometown.
Surrounded by the rugged, breathtaking beauty of the Isle of Skye's rocky coastline, velvet moors, and lush forests, Heather must face challenges old and new as she puts her life back together and learns the healing power of family.

Strong characters, nice storyline
I didn't think I would enjoy this book as much as I did. The characters drew me in very successfully and I felt a little sad when it ended.
