Claire Barclay has returned to the home in Scotland where she spent her teenage years. After the sudden death of her mother, Claire is concerned about the welfare of her much-loved and now frail stepfather, Leo. But his own grown children seem more concerned about preserving their financial assets than their father's health.

Claire is desperately trying to avoid Jonas, the love of her life who broke her heart at just 18, but he's asking her to trust him again, on a matter of all urgency. Can she forget the past and put her faith in someone who once hurt her so deeply?

    " Like many others I was picked this up because of it being set in Scotland but the author did a horrible job making you feel like it was a "special" place - it sounded dull and gray and for all that was mentioned about Scotland, it could have been set anywhere. Very disappointing in that respect. The twist was suspenseful which kept me reading. Jumping around in times was just confusing - it was better at the end when it just followed one timeline. Just o.k. I wouldn't read another of his books though. "

    " A true Pilcher story. Very very good, hard to put down. Highly recommended to read. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Lisa | 2/4/2014

    " OK story. Fun, quick read. Read it while I was sick for a light and easy read. Likely won't be recommending this one. Didn't think the story was that great nor the characters too believable. Reminded me of a cheap soap opera. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Sue | 1/29/2014

    " I loved this book. It is an easy , fast read and yes, I admit it, with a happy ending and justice prevails:) I seem to always be looking for that!!! Enjoy it! "

    " Claire Barclay has made a satisfying life for herself after leaving Scotland for New York. She married a loving husband and they are happy running a successful restaurant. Claire must revisit unfinished business from her past when she finds that her beloved stepfather has had a stroke, and she must return to Scotland to handle his affairs. She must decide whether her first love, who has gained her stepfather's trust, is truly acting in his best interest, and in doing so, must confront some unresolved feelings from her youth. Fans of Rosamunde Pilcher will enjoy her son's writing, as well as fans of domestic fiction. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Georgette | 1/23/2014

    " Like his Mother before him, Robin Pilcher writes the most charming of books.Relationships lost and found again. How often do we have the opportunity to have fate bring us together again with a former friend or lover, and moved on. Then circumstances bring you together again and what if may be answered or not, weaving a new appreciation for where you are in your life. Mysteries of close friendships that ended abruptly without explanation and leaving so many questions in their place. This was a lovely read that keeps you guessing (ok, at least moi)almost till the end. Enjoy "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Kelly | 1/22/2014

    " This was the first book I read by Robin Pilcher and it will be the last. The characters are very boring and the story stunk. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Clayton Brannon | 1/18/2014

    " Good story. Well written. Overall a real pleasure of a book. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Heather | 1/15/2014

    " Written very much like his mother, Rosamunde Pilcher, which I really enjoy. Nice story, good characters, I always love the character development of both the Pilchers. There are some interesting twists to the story, and keeps my interest right to the end. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Ilovetoread2 | 1/9/2014

    " This book had me reading avidly until the very end, mainly to see if my ideas about the outcome were correct. There was a certain amount of changes of date and venue that I found a bit confusing but not enough to make me give up. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Trishhinds | 1/8/2014

    " I did not realize that this was Rosamunde Pilcher's son, but always enjoyed her books set in Scotland and this was no different. A bit trite, but enjoyed it none the less. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Mom | 1/4/2014

    " I love reading Rosemunde Pilcher's books. I think I own every one of them. This book, by her son, was in the same caliber. Always makes me want a hot cup of tea and a boiled egg. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Sandra | 12/24/2013

    " This is a well-told story with a twist at the end that made it worth reading. I enjoyed all of R. Pilcher's books, and her sons are not bad either. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Kirstin | 12/22/2013

    " A very satisfying read! If you're a fan of authors Maeve Binchy or Rosamunde Pilcher, you will enjoy this book. I enjoyed the Scotland setting, and the surprise ending. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Jane Wetzel | 12/21/2013

    " The characters don't act logically much of the time. This is always a bother to me. It is just sort of ho-hum interesting. Kate Reading is a very good narrator, but the story was just not appealing to me. I did finish it. It was tolerable enough for that. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Judy Molloy | 12/16/2013

    " Good book, started slow but then picked up "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Nancy Wieme | 5/15/2013

    " Good, not great. Predictable and not a single murder- and sometimes, you just need no murders, ya know? "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Betty | 5/11/2013

    " The author kept you wondering who is the good guy and who is the bad guy right up to the end... and I'm not telling. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Mary | 12/24/2012

    " Enjoyed, though the ending seemed way more convoluted than necessary and somewhat unbelievable. The "English" terms were... interesting. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Joy | 11/18/2012

    " First time for this author, I used to read his mother's novels in Readers Digest Condensed form. A midlife rememberace of a young love..facing older parents life changes,planning for those changes when there are step-siblings. A sweet story, no blood and gore. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Clare | 10/1/2012

    " A wonderful book about friendship that was challenged and then renewed. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Linda | 7/11/2012

    " Loved this book right from the beginning to the very end. I would highly recommend it. Claire Barclay is the main character and you meet her as a child through to her adult life. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Crystal | 6/1/2012

    " Fairly good. First Robin Pilcher I have read. I am a big fan of his mother, so I thought I would give him a try. Probably will read more books by him. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Nancy | 5/16/2012

    " Sweet story. He does not write as well as his mother, but he always tells a nice Scottish story with a little twist. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Kim | 2/1/2012

    " Not too bad of a story. Found it really picked up the second half of the book. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Gech | 12/18/2011

    " The plot is engaging though often far-fetched, but the characters are flat and there is no exploration of the characters emotional world. Though one would want to turn the pages (in "read" it in audio format) to find out the ending of the book, having reached there, one would find it so empty. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 June Guymon | 8/12/2011

    " A loosely plotted novel, which falls far short of any real impact or depth. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Tracy | 4/27/2011

    " A good holiday read for me, I enjoyed the characters. Some good twists at the end. "
