'Kate in her house. A whitewashed stone building with a view of the sea, on the west coast of the Highlands...' Kate is the mother of Mhairi, who has, alarmingly, married without telling her, and returned home pregnant by a departed lover. After baby Patrick's birth, Mhairi does a terrible thing - but surprising rescue comes in the shape of a homeless young man on the run. Offering a wry contemporary perspective on Highland life, this is a warm, forgiving novel about people's need to find their home in the world.
