This sweeping love story gripped us from the start, so we can’t wait for the next in the series. Best historical romance of 2022
I so enjoyed The Last Summer by Karen Swan, which provides fascinating details about life on St Kilda prior to the evacuation of its inhabitants from the island. Powerful writing and a wonderful premise make this a novel you’ll simultaneously want to savour and race through. I loved it and can’t wait for the next in the series!
The most exciting, enchanting and evocative story of forbidden love I’ve ever read. I truly loved it and am waiting feverishly for the second installment.
A delicious romantic tale of wild 1930s Scotland . . . perfect for everyone dreaming of summer
