Loch Ewe, 1940. When gamekeeperโ€™s daughter Floraโ€™s remote highland village finds itself the base for the Royal Navyโ€™s Arctic convoys, life in her close-knit community changes forever. In defiance of his disapproving father, the lairdโ€™s son falls in love with Flora, and as tensions build in their disrupted home, any chance of their happiness seems doomed.
Decades later, Floraโ€™s daughter, singer Lexie Gordon, is forced to return to the village and to the tiny cottage where she grew up. Having long ago escaped to the bright lights of the West End, London still never truly felt like home. Now back, with a daughter of her own, Lexie learns that her motherโ€”and the hostile-seeming village itselfโ€”have long been hiding secrets that make her question everything she thought she knew.
As she pieces together the fragments of her parentsโ€™ story, Lexie discovers the courageous, devastating sacrifices made in her name. Itโ€™s too late to rekindle her relationship with her mother, but can Lexie find it in her heart to forgive the past, to grieve for all thatโ€™s lost, and finally find her place in the world?

I love books set in Scotland so I couldnโ€™t resist this one. Told in dual timelines this story follows Flora during WWII and Lexi, her daughter, in the late 70โ€™s. Learning about this little villa during the war was fascinating. I simply loved it.

We spent some days there a few years back while my husband was working there and we fell in love with the landscape.
