'ORIGINAL AND ENTHRALLING' Guardian 'COMPLETELY ENCHANTING' Penny Vincenzi Elizabeth Pringle lived all her long life on the Scottish island of Arran. But did anyone really know her? In her will she leaves her beloved house, Holmlea, to a stranger - a young mother she'd seen pushing a pram down the road over thirty years ago. It now falls to Martha, once the baby in that pram, to answer the question: why? A captivating story of the richness behind so-called ordinary lives and the secrets and threads that hold women together.
