    " Although this is a terribly sad book, this book will stay with me for the rest of my life. It was the most beautiful story and really makes you realise that you shouldn't take life for granted. I highly recommend this book to anyone! "

    " Emotional tale that gripped me for three days. A book that I will read again in a year. "

    " I think I've read this before but it stood reading again. I really liked it but it made me cry several times. It's a story about death and life and everything in between. Called to the death bed of a man who was a childhood friend and a little more, Marnie goes to Scotland to be with Ralph, who's dying, and Oliver, his best friend who she once loved. Ralph loves Marnie and has done all his life and although Marnie loves him too, it's not in the same way that he loves her. Not spoiling anything by saying that. The book beautifully explores past and current relationships and the language is just perfect. But this is the sort of book I can only take in small doses. It wears out my emotions just as Jojo Moyes - Me Before You - does. Worthy books but not 'entertainment'. "

    " Drawn by the fantastic cover, this book proved to be the perfect book to read by the winter fire as snow came down outside. It's a great juxtaposition of past and present that builds tension and draws you into the lives and characters of 3 people brought together in remotest Scotland after many years. An interesting examination of love in its many forms. "

    " A truly lovely book with a range of emotions, a strong story related mostly in flashbacks and well developed characters who were hard not to love. "
