Christmas on the island

Jenny Colgan

Book - 2018

It's a time for getting cozy in front of whisky barrel wood fires, and enjoying a dram and a treacle pudding with the people you love - unless, of course, you've accidentally gotten pregnant by your ex-boss, and don't know how to tell him. In the season for peace and good cheer, will Flora find the nerve to reveal the truth to her nearest and dearest? Will her erstwhile co-parent Joel think she's the bearer of glad tidings - or is this Christmas going to be as bleak as the Hi...ghlands in midwinter? Meanwhile Saif, a doctor and refugee from war-torn Syria is trying to enjoy his first western Christmas with his sons on this remote island where he's been granted asylum. His wife, however, is still missing, and her absence hangs over what should be a joyful celebration. Can the family possibly find comfort and joy without her?

Review by Library Journal Reviews

It's Christmas on the Scottish island of Mure, but a cold wind blows through Flora's heart as she contemplates telling her former boss that she's pregnant with his child. Meanwhile, refugee Syrian doctor Saif tries to enjoy the holidays with his sons but aches for his missing wife. Last year's Christmas at Little Beach Street Bakery quickly outsold Colgan's previous "Little Beach Street" titles. Copyright 2018 Library Journal.
