‘A glorious, breathtaking, tender romance. I loved every moment of the ride’ SOPHIE KINSELLA

‘[A] blast of feelgood fiction […] it makes me want to head for the Highlands’ THE TIMES

Born into a family of successful pilots, Morag is used to flying high. But when a tragic accident above the clouds grounds her, could the future she’d always imagined be suddenly out of reach?

When she receives a call telling her that her beloved grandfather has been taken ill, Morag leaves her fast-paced life in London to return home to the tranquil Scottish Highlands. With her grandfather out of action, Morag has no choice but to take over flying the local route in his rickety old plane, ferrying locals across the beautiful islands of the archipelago.

But as the weather takes a dramatic turn, Morag is forced to crash-land on a remote island and suddenly finds herself far from civilisation and all alone. Then she discovers Gregor, the gruff and reclusive ornithologist taking care of the island for the season. Though the pair don’t see eye to eye, Morag is forced to seek shelter at his cabin and it seems the pair are stuck together until help arrives. However long that may be . . .

As she awaits rescue, might Morag discover that a remote Scottish island, cut off from real-life, is exactly the place she needs to be?


Jenny Colgan's latest blast of feelgood fiction [...] Morag's bubbly narration, spiked with wry asides, is delightful and her descriptions of flying are rapturous. And the wild islands are evoked so beautifully it made me want to head for the Highlands
