Summary

Lorna's world is small but safe.

She loves her daughter and the two of them are all that matter. But after nearly twenty years, she and Ella are suddenly leaving London for the Isle of Kip, the tiny remote Scottish island where Lorna grew up. 

Alice's world is tiny but full.

She loves the community on Kip and how her yoga classes draw women across the tiny island together. Now Lorna's arrival might help their family finally mend itself—even if forgiveness means returning to the past....

And as the two women find friendship, Lorna also starts to find her place in the world.

Can coming home mean starting again?

Fantastic narration!

At times I just wanted to take a short cut and find out what happens, but in the end enjoyed the richness of the characters and detail of the plot.
