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?
I LOVED this story and the depths it went to! It’s a difficult story with various triggers but I felt they were written well and in the right taste.
I felt so many emotions for all of the characters and loved that it was written from multiple POV.
Despite the heavy nature of some of the content there were real sunbeams of light and love and it was written so well that I floated through and read it super quickly.
I could see the Island of Kip as if I were there, the descriptions so subtly vivid.
The dialogues and situations entirely believable and gripping.
I can’t fault this book and it is therefore a big fat 5/5 for me.
