Skye Turner has returned home after fifteen years. She had thought to never return to Eilean Shiel in the Highlands ever again. She had left to make her career in music, both writing and playing it. She had planned to go with her sister, Ginny, who would do the singing; but Ginny’s death ended that dream. On the night of Ginny’s death, Skye had a terrible car accident which had taken her knowledge of the accident away from her. It did mean she was in the hospital when the search for Ginny’s body occurred in the sea. Witnesses had seen her on the jetty and it was said a rogue wave had taken her to her death in the sea. Upon her return home, Skye has found out that her Mother believes Ginny had committed suicide but gives no reason for it. Before that, Skye believed quite truthfully that her Mother blames her for Ginny’s death. Since Skye was the elder of the twins, it had always been her job to watch out for Ginny. When she didn’t, Ginny died. It was no wonder she blamed herself.
The book is written with such language as to draw the reader into the story and be alongside Skye as she finally decides to allow Nick, her mother’s boarder, to take another look at the accident report.

It was poorly edited, though - lots of spelling mistakes. The ones that spring to mind are a "power chord" and an artist's "pallet". The most egregious though, is the frequent reference to "whiskey". I'm pretty confident that, on the west coast of Scotland, the drink would be exclusively "whisky"!
However the editing left a lot to be desired and obviously not done by a Scot! Whiskey is Irish. Whisky is Scottish. And Scots never refer to New Year as New Year's.
