Since the split of her 18-year marriage, Liz Dewhurst has lived with her son, Alex, and her father on their family farm on the east coast of Fife. Liz's acrimonious divorce and the decline of the business has left them burdened with debt - Liz wants to keep the farm but her father feels it sensible to sell to a company who wants to make the land into a golf course. The arrival of Arthur, a professor, seems to bring more trouble but Liz's misgivings about taking in a lodger evaporate when she realises that not only does Arthur's presence help her lonely father but that she too, enjoys his company. Arthur, also divorced, is anxious to live life to the full, and asks Liz to accompany him on a trip to Spain. Liz refuses at first, but then thinks why not? When Arthur breaks his ankle, she is joined by Will, Arthur's estranged son, and with Arthur being the patient from hell and Liz feeling that she shouldn't be there, the return journey to Scotland is not an easy one but on the way the unexpected happens...

Robin Pilcher, bestselling author of An Ocean Apart returns readers to contemporary Scotland, where the "simple" life has grown somewhat more complicated, but the shortest distance between lonely hearts will always be love...

Liz Dewhurst has witnessed quite a bit in her thirty-seven years: the birth of her son, the death of her mother, the waxing and waning days on the farm where she was raised...the sight of her husband in another woman's arms. Suddenly, she's feeling worn down and used up by the very lifestyle upon which she once thrived.

...Is To Live It
Now Liz must confront a few things, including the fate of the farm, her feelings for her ex-husband, and a trip to Spain that rekindles a fire in her she had forgotten existed. The Liz who returns to Balmuir is a different woman. Now, in the wake of a near-tragedy, she must draw on her newfound strength to make a difficult choice. To look at her life in a different way, standing tall, and...

Starting Over

"Pilcher writes with an excellent sense of the pace of his story. It's easy to feel you know these people and to grasp the complexities of their relationships...a worthy novel." -Houston Chronicle

"[Pilcher's] characters are ordinary people enriched by [the] quiet rendering of their lives in a tale [with] lots of emotion...one of those smart, charming stories that leaves readers feeling content and very happy that they chose to read it." -Booklist

When Liz Dewhurst discovers that her husband Gregor is having an affair, it not only destroys their marriage but also threatens their livelihoods.
