Facilitated by: Mary Calhoun & Amanda Kiernan
A delightful summertime novel that puts a modern twist on the classic Seven Brides for Seven Brothers story.
Years ago, Flora fled the quiet Scottish island where she grew up — and she hasn’t looked back. What would she have done on Mure? It’s a place where everyone has known her all her life, where no one will let her forget the past. In bright, bustling London, she can be anonymous, ambitious… and hopelessly in love with her boss.
But when fate brings Flora back to the island, she’s suddenly swept once more into life with her brothers and her father. Yet even amid the chaos of their reunion, Flora discovers a passion for cooking — and finds herself restoring dusty little pink-fronted shop on the harbor: a café by the sea.
With the seasons changing, Flora must come to terms with past mistakes and work out exactly where her future lies.
