Under a Summer Skye


By Sue Moorcroft


Thea Wynter has left Suffolk and her old life behind for a job as head gardener at Rothach Hall on the Isle of Skye, Scotland. She loves the peaceful idyllic island and couldn't be happier. But when a stranger from the mainland arrives, emotions are stirred and Thea's old life soon begins to catch up with her.

Under a Summer Skye is the first book in a new series. Being a departure from my usual crime and thriller reads, I really wasn't sure if it was 'my thing'. However, I was very pleasantly surprised. It was beautifully written, charming and uplifting. The Isle of Skye setting was perfect — the author's descriptions painted a gorgeous vivid picture of it. Despite being fictional, the main characters and Rothach Hall felt solid and real. It was pure escapism and I loved it.

A chance encounter is about to change everything for Thea Wynter.

The moment she arrived on the Isle of Skye, life changed for Thea. Running from a succession of wrong turns, she comes to the island in search of blue sea, endless skies, and mountains that make the heart soar. Here, she feels at peace.

As head gardener at Rothach Hall, life is exactly how she wants it, with her days spent working in the glorious clifftop garden and her evenings in the cosy local village.

But an encounter with a stranger from the mainland brings with it an unexpected turn – and only time will tell if he is friend or foe.

It seems that even on Skye, life can catch up with you, and Thea is soon faced with the past she left behind – and with it, the family she’s never met…
