Dan Porter had it all: a big house in suburban London, a beautiful wife, three children in private school, and a high-paying job. But then, it all collapsed like a house of cards. Now Dan stays home while his angry wife pursues a career, and his marriage falters. Returning to his old profession could mend the rift, but Dan needs to do something else, something more...

Then, Dan hears about a company for sale in northern Scotland, and the temptation is too great to resist. With his son Josh and two dogs in tow, he lands in a primitive cottage above a frigid loch. As he takes stock of his past, he discovers a community who desperately needs his help, a new chance for the future, a risk that requires a leap of faith...and an astonishing love.

A good story but it was spoiled for me with the sexual content and bad language. I have read many of his mother's books ( Rosamund Pilcher) and enjoyed them all and she never had one swear word or immoral parts in them ! Only read this book because of his mother' s work.

What a good book...I couldn't put it down!
Originally chose this book because he is the son of Rosamunde Pilcher & I am glad that I did.
