Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Robin Pilcher, bestselling author of AN OCEAN APART and STARTING OVER takes a look at life after 9/11, when a Londoner leaves the world of high finance for a new start in a winter-bound Scottish village...

At A Fork In The Road Of Life...

Dan Porter had it all: a big house in suburban London, a beautiful wife, three children in private school, and a high-paying job. But then, it all collapsed like a house of cards. Now Dan stays home while his angry wife pursues a career, and his marriage falters. Returning to his old profession could mend the rift, but Dan needs to do something else, something more...

Follow The Path Of Your Heart

Then, Dan hears about a company for sale in northern Scotland, and the temptation is too great to resist. With his son Josh and two dogs in tow, he lands in a primitive cottage above a frigid loch. As he takes stock of his past, he discovers a community who desperately needs his help, a new chance for the future, a risk that requires a leap of faith...and an astonishing love.

"A charming story about life in the new millennium and one man's pursuit of happiness, a tale that will appeal to both men and women." -Booklist

"Pilcher's Scotland is a land of traditions...strong and rich." --Los Angeles Times on Starting Over
