My Recommendation

MoMo’s Book Diary loved Finding Heather and strongly recommends as a 5 star read.

Just loved this absorbing novel set on the Isle of Skye, Scotland.

Heather’s is finding it difficult to adjust to life without her husband who has died suddenly, leaving her with seven-year-old twins who need her to pull herself together.  Heather decides to move back to Scotland where she knows she will get the support from her mother and brother.  Once home in Scotland, Heather finds life on Skye has changed and much-needed adjustment is not so quick and easy as she hoped. 

Finding Heather tells a remarkable tale, with well-developed characters, of life after the sudden death of a spouse. I found it easy to relate to the individual characters who have to deal with changing roles when Heather moves back home. 

Alison Ragsdale is a wonderfully talented author who has the ability to transport the reader inside the story in such a way you can believe the characters are real.  I hope to visit Skye in the next year or two and look forward to meeting Heather, or at least people like her!

The pace of the book is just right.  There are tears of sadness and happiness, funtimes and sadtimes throughout the twists and turns of life for the family and friends involved.

I would happily buy this book for a friend and highly recommend this book and author.

I would like to thank Alison Ragsdale, Lake Union Publishing and NetGalley for the opportunity to read and review this book prior to its release.
