The stunning new story of love and secrets from the Number One bestselling author of The Forgotten Village
War rages across Europe, but Invermoray House is at peace. Until the night of Constance’s twenty-first birthday, when she’s the only person to see a Spitfire crash into the loch. Constance has been longing for adventure – but when she promises to keep the pilot hidden, what will it cost her?
Kate arrives in the Highlands to turn Invermoray into a luxury bed-and-breakfast, only to find that the estate is more troubled than she’d imagined. But when Kate discovers the house has a murky history, with Constance McLay’s name struck from its records, she knows she can’t leave until the mystery is solved…
How will one promise change the fate of two women, decades apart?
This was a fantastic book from beginning to end! This book I got to read on Pigeonhole and it was so frustrating waiting each day for the next stave to be released!
I loved how this book jumped between 2 time zones and each part ended on a cliffhanger. I guessed the romance side of things straight away but there was alot more to this story than just romance and there were so many twists and turns I was kept guessing the whole way through. I think I enjoyed Constance’s parts more than Kate’s but I liked both.
In 2020 Kate moves to Scotland to help Liz and James turn their home into a B & B. When Kate comes across James it becomes apparent that she isn’t welcome in his eyes and she has a mission on her hands with the house.
In 1940 Constance feels like shes not playing her part in the world. When she sees a plane crash into their loch and manages to save the pilot she begins to come alive in ways she never imagined.
As the 1 ladies begin the path on their new adventures we find out more about both and then the paths cross as Kate discovers more about Constance.
I enjoyed the book so much before I had even finished the first stave I had purchased Lorna’s first book and I am looking forward to reading it!
