ABOUT THIS BOOK
Do you need to find out where you've come from before you can know what the future holds?
Ruby's singing career is on the verge of hitting the big time, when her voice breaks. Fearing her career is over, she signs up for a retreat in Tenerife to recover.
But an unexpected call from a stranger on a remote Scottish island takes her on a short trip to sort out some family business. It's time to go and see the grandfather she's never met.
City girl Ruby knows she will be happy to leave the windswept beaches behind as quickly as she can, especially as a years-old family rift means she knows she won't be welcome at Teach Mhor.
But as she arrives at the big house overlooking the bay, she finds things are not as straightforward as she might have thought.
There's an unexpected guest in the house and he's not planning on going anywhere any time soon ...
With her signature style, Jo Thomas swept me away to a Scottish island and held me captive to the very end of this compelling story.
Ruby's career is on the verge of hitting the big time when she starts to suffer from voice problems. A relaxing break in the sunshine is just what the doctor ordered. But first, there is a quick matter of signing some papers in Scotland to do with a grandfather that she has never met. Only the quick trip soon turns into something much more complicated with a sitting tenant, a missing gin recipe, and an undiscovered past that will see Ruby really dig deep into her family history and her own emotions. It doesn't look like she will be leaving any time soon ...
Emotional, descriptive, and completely addictive, Jo Thomas writes characters and places in such a way that makes them feel completely real. You feel like you are there and that these characters are your friends, such is her talent.
There are plenty of twists and turns, ups and downs, which took me by surprise and I enjoyed following Ruby on this path to learn about her family and herself.
COMING HOME TO WINTER ISLAND by Jo Thomas is another superb book from this master storyteller and I look forward to the next book as always. Definitely a must-read this Winter.
