Wonderfully descriptive of Hebridean coast.

You felt you were there, however the characters I found uninspiring. None captured my attention, none I cared much for - least so the protagonist, Libby. Much female dithering amongst male power. (Apart from one bad/strong/obvious and fleeting female character). Frankly, I wished to kick Libby, oft. Without the landscape detail, I would not have finished. Hate to be mean but glad when it ended. 🙈
