Zoe is a single mother, sinking beneath the waves trying to cope by herself in London. Hari, her gorgeous little boy is perfect in every way - except for the fact that he just doesn't speak, at all. When her landlord raises the rent on her flat, Zoe doesn't know where to turn.

Then Hari's aunt suggests Zoe could move to Scotland to help run a bookshop. Going from the lonely city to a small village in the Highlands could be the change Zoe and Hari desperately need.

Faced with an unwelcoming boss, a moody, distant bookseller named Ramsay Urquart, and a band of unruly children, Zoe wonders if she's made the right decision. But Hari has found his very first real friend, and no one could resist the beauty of the loch glinting in the summer sun. If only Ramsay would just be a little more approachable...

Dreams start here . . .

Enchanting tale about a strong woman, a couple of children and LOTS of books

You get a book that reminded me at times of Jane Eyre, Rebecca and Lemony Snickets 'A series of unfortunate events' and Nanny McPhee. You get a book about a single mother who has no dime left and so accepts the offer of two jobs in rural Scotland: being a nanny for 3 spoilt and motherless children living in a dark + dusty + old-fashioned castle, who already scared away 6 previous AuPairs with their cheekiness. On top of that, during the day she drives around a van that doubles as a bookshop and tries to sell books to the aloof villagers who don't trust her to choose the correct titles for them. And although I do enjoy reading fluffy chick-lits, I was pleasantly surprised to get something very different here. After a while I even took a liking to Patrick, Mary and Shackleton (Hari was in my heart from the very beginning). I really admired Zoe for her fortitude, and her bravery living in this spooky (but also quite enchanting - once it got a proper dusting) castle at Loch Ness. Oh, and books also play an important role in the story, and plenty of them are mentioned throughout. Thumbs up for that!
