Publisher's Summary

Christmas on the remote Scottish island of Mure is bleak, stark - and incredibly beautiful.

It's a time for hunkering down, getting cosy in front of whisky barrel wood fires and enjoying a dram with the people you love - unless, of course, you're accidentally pregnant to your ex-boss and don't know how to tell him. In what should be the season of peace and goodwill on earth, will Joel think Flora is a bearer of glad tidings?

Meanwhile Saif, the doctor and refugee from war-torn Syria, is trying to enjoy his first Western Christmas with his sons - but without his missing wife. Can the little family possibly find comfort and joy?

Travel to the beautiful northern edge of the world and join the welcoming community of Mure for an unforgettable Christmas.

Not the cheery Christmas story I was hoping for

I usually like Colgan's books for a bit of escapism, and I do love a good Christmas story in the lead up to Christmas. But this one was full of death, disharmony, and misunderstandings. a bit grim for Christmas escapism and cheer. It ended on an okay cheerful-ish note I guess, but still left me feeling meh, rather than uplifted and looking forward to Christmas.
