Set in a small community on the Scottish coast, the new feel-good story about family, belonging and secrets from the past from the author of The Lighthouse Bookshop and The Forgotten Garden.

Can a return to the past be the start of something new?

Bette and Nina Crowdie have never been close – they’re too different, the ten-year age difference doesn’t help, and Bette’s rarely been back home since she left for university at eighteen. When their father passes away and unexpectedly splits the family farm between them, Nina is furious and afraid. She’s been working at the farm for the past five years. It’s the only stable home her young son Barnaby has ever had, and she’s convinced that Bette, who never wanted anything to do with the family business, will sell at the first chance she gets.

When they discover the huge debt their father has been hiding from them both, Bette reluctantly agrees to help her sister. But that means they have to find a way to work together, and Bette must face up to the real reason she left all those years ago.

Could the discovery of an ancient orchard on their land be the key to saving the farm – and the sisters’ relationship?
