Can Leila learn to live with her new identity?
Leila Gill, in her sixties and newly remarried after being single for most of her life, is finally coming to terms with assimilating her new identity. But when unpacking the last of the storage boxes from the home she once shared with her mother, Greer, she unearths something that blows apart her new-found sense of ‘roots’, and reveals a mystery that haunts her long after the trail has gone cold.
What did happen to Flora, the woman who was her biological grandmother? And why did Greer seem to have no memory of her?
Leila is left with questions to which it seems she’ll never find an answer.
Although Ella Collingwood knows this well, she’s hoping her new life in Balvaig, a tranquil village on the Hebridean Isle of Soma, will be a fresh start. But within weeks her husband, Rolf, is disillusioned with his new job, and it’s clear he means to distract himself in the way that’s almost caused their relationship to break down already; he still has a roving eye.
A new relationship seems to offer Ella a way out – is it a haven or a trap?
Recently-widowed artist Lenka Majewska, another recent arrival in Balvaig, is also feeling trapped; she’s being pressured into making a commitment she's not yet ready to make.
The two women soon become friends. Both have found to their cost that love is a risky business. Can they help each other weather the storm?
That’s what retired teacher Peigi MacKenzie believes. Men have only brought her trouble in the past, and she has long since vowed never to let her heart lead her astray again; she has convinced herself she’s content to be single. She has sold her house in the Hebridean village of Balvaig; she’s financially secure, and happy with her new home on the Wirral peninsula.
But the responsibility of looking after her late niece's two young children isn’t what she had planned. She’s looking for a way to reinvent herself…
Out of the blue, she meets Liverpudlian ex-policeman Kevin Phillipis, a widower. Although he's far from being what Peigi would think of as "her type", the attraction is mutual. She throws caution to the winds, and within months has agreed to marry Kevin.
When everything starts to go wrong, there’s a voice echoing in Peigi’s head - her Free Kirk preacher father’s: ‘Happiness is a signal from the Devil that he’s looking to trip you up.’
Has it all been too good to be true after all?
‘Peter MacKenzie put a hex on his daughters,’ they used to say in the village of Balvaig, ‘he cursed them so they’d never find happiness in a man’s bed. And there’s his grand-daughter gone the same path.….’
Serena MacKenzie is a successful TV journalist, based in Edinburgh, but she has never shaken off the obsessions that have gripped her since her childhood in the dysfunctional MacKenzie family of Balvaig: fairy tale heroes, all things Russian, and her grandparents’ disapproval.
It’s 1997, and she’s newly divorced. When a friend persuades her to join a cruise to St Petersburg, it seems just the treat she has told herself she deserves.
Over the space of a few heady days in the queen of Baltic cities, she meets Russian musician Max Grigoriev and brings him home with her, illegally. He seems like the first man in years who really understands her.
But Max's personality is as flawed as Serena's, and he has his own agenda; life with him turns out to be anything but a fairy tale…
