I was halfway home on the bus when Jamie sent me a text ‘Sorry’ it said. ‘Forgive me?’ Sad face icon. ‘Forgive me?’ It was so easy to say. Words were cheap. But forgiveness is as vital as air…

Recently dumped by Jamie, her arrogant boyfriend, Isabel Bright goes on holiday with her family to a remote part of Scotland where, for a joke, she and her sister Alice send a message in a bottle from a deserted beach. Back home, Isabel starts rehearsals for the school play - Shakespeare’s The Tempest – a play about islands, storms and love at first sight. Then, out of the blue, a letter arrives...

‘Shakespeare’s play, Isabel’s rather luvvy life and Duncan’s own real, personal dramas are played out and cleverly mingled in this unerringly sharp, contemporary book…I wouldn’t be surprised if this isn’t another award winner for Sue Mayfield.’ Books for Keeps
