In the vein of Maeve Binchy, Rosamunde Pilcher, and Nicholas
Sparks, New York Times bestselling
author Robin Pilcher returns with his most enchanting novel yet, filled with
captivating twists and turns of heart.
When Claire Barclay receives news that her beloved
stepfather has had a stroke, she’s more than a little shaken. Leo is her last
real relative, and his own children rarely check up on the old man. Claire and
her husband, Art, leave New York and fly back to Scotland to care for him
during the summer. Their visit makes clear that Leo is no longer capable of
living on his own, but he is determined to stay in his beloved old house. Art
comes up with the idea of turning the place into a conference center, thinking
they could purchase the place from Leo and build him a cottage on the property.
But the situation is much more complicated than it seems.
Claire’s old flame, Jonas Fairwether, has become Leo’s caretaker and trusted
confidant. Though Claire distrusts Jonas’s motives, Leo chooses to take his
advice to put the house up for public auction rather than sell directly to Art
and Claire. Claire is immediately suspicious, and even more so when she finds
out that another application has been submitted to develop the property. Does
Jonas Fairwether want to knock down the house and build a development? It looks
like whoever is behind the plan is being driven by financial gain, but there may
be an even stronger motive.
