Do you love someone enough to let them go?

It was love at first sight when talented art student Felicity “Flick” Johnston-Hart and Jim MacDuff’s worlds collided at Oxford University.

However, after years of blissful marriage, everything crashes down when their marriage comes to a painful and abrupt end, thanks to Flick’s interfering mother Penelope.

Finally succumbing to maternal pressure, Flick falls into the high-flying career her mother believed she was destined for.

However, she soon realises life without Jim isn’t all she’d hoped, and that some decisions, once made, cannot be undone.

Meanwhile, Jim is settling back into life as a single man in the beautiful Highland village of Shieldaig, when an unexpected visitor brings painful news. A letter from beyond the grave leads him to do something he never imagined and takes him on a journey he didn’t anticipate.

Can either of them heal and truly move on?

Or is it true that a broken heart can never be a blank canvas?

Rating: 4 out of 5.

When Felicity (Flick) decides that her husband, Jim, is not pushy enough for her and that she’d rather pursue her career as a high flying executive in the art world, he is heartbroken. He decides to move to the beautiful Highland village of Shieldaig and start a new life.

When Flick appears on his doorstep, he doesn’t know what to make of this? He’s well aware that her mother was behind their breakup. But her father, recently deceased, has left him some information that reveals Flick’s true feelings

Will they be able to put their marriage back on track? Will Jim be able to forgive Flick and has she realized what she gave up.

A lovely second-chance romance with some mystery and suspense thrown in.
