I loved this story! It is a beautifully touching story with so many layers to it, like a tasty treat you just don’t want to put down till it is finished.
It is an amazing story of Amelia’s attempt to fulfil the dream of her close friend and complete the eighty mile trek across the Isle of Skye. She’s never attempted anything like this before, in fact she’s always refused to join in such activities. As the reasons for her doing it this time are revealed, her determination and resolve to complete it grow. Rory is initially so disparaging of her goals but ends up being her biggest supporter. Both are on their own journey to emotional healing because of personal painful events that have severely impacted on them, leaving them with heavy guilt pains.
The setting is superb and the carefully crafted descriptions bring them to life in the reader’s imagination. The interactions between all the characters are so well portrayed that it feels as though you are there, witnessing everything – the sights and smells, the wind and rain, the sunshine, the struggles and successes. It is a poignant story that I suspect will stay with me for years to come and it is certainly one which I intend re-reading in future. This is a keeper, one of the best books I’ve read and very worthy of the 5* rating I’m giving it IMHO. I’ll definitely be looking for more by this highly talented author in future!
I requested and was lucky enough to be given a copy of this novel, via NetGalley, with no obligation. This is my honest review of the book after choosing to read it.
“Beautifully evocative and romantic.” – NYT bestselling author, Monica McCarty
An eighty-mile trek across the rugged, stunning beauty of Scotland’s Isle of Skye isn’t something I imagined myself doing. Ever. This isn’t a trail for beginners. And I’m not a hiker.
But I have to finish it, even if it kills me. I have no choice.
With the ever-changing weather and relentless terrain, I’m in over my head.
Rory Sutherland, my guide on this adventure, is not happy. We clash with every mile, but we recognize a shared pain. Not only is the journey a struggle, but the tension between us is taut with unsaid words. And hope.
He’s broken. I’m damaged. Together, we’re about to make the perfect storm.
