Summary

Christmas on the remote Scottish island of Mure is bleak, stark - and incredibly beautiful.

It's a time for hunkering down, getting cosy in front of whisky barrel wood fires and enjoying a dram with the people you love - unless, of course, you're accidentally pregnant to your ex-boss and don't know how to tell him. In what should be the season of peace and goodwill on earth, will Joel think Flora is a bearer of glad tidings?

Meanwhile Saif, the doctor and refugee from war-torn Syria, is trying to enjoy his first Western Christmas with his sons - but without his missing wife. Can the little family possibly find comfort and joy?

Travel to the beautiful northern edge of the world and join the welcoming community of Mure for an unforgettable Christmas.

Too much

The author tried to include too many threads in this book. The characters too black and white.

Tell me there will be more!!

Everything about this series is perfect. I couldn’t love it anymore, Sarah Barron is just wonderful as the narrator and I find myself completely sucked in from the beginning. I’ve read some reviews that say they would expect this to be the end but I can’t see how? I need more saif in my life!

Great story, well narrated

I had to write in response to the reviewer who criticised the Scottish accents - the narrator is a bone fide Scot, and I think she does the Highland accent particularly well.

This is a beautiful sequel to the first story, I was so excited to find it. Full of twists, turns and emotion.

Great Story but the little girls voice............

I Loved this book however the little girls voice was driving be around the bend. It was the only thing that spoiled the book. Otherwise a great book to listen too.

A Christmas treat.

Cosy and comforting, like a glass of single malt by the fire on a snowy night.
