From the No. 1 bestselling author of Watch Over Me , comes the second novel in Daniela Sacerdoti’s Glen Avich series, set in the magical and atmospheric Scottish Highlands. Take Me Home is a beautiful story of love, loss, discovering one’s true abilities and, above all, never forgetting who you really are.
Inary Monteith’s life is at a crossroads. After a stolen night with her close friend Alex, she’s just broken his heart by telling him it was all a terrible mistake. Then she has to rush home from London to the Scottish Highlands when her little sister’s illness suddenly worsens – in returning she must confront the painful memories she has been trying so hard to esape. Back home, things become more complicated than she could ever have imagined.
There’s her sister’s illness, her hostile brother, a smug ex she never wants to see again and her conflicted feelings about Alex in London and a handsome American she meets in Glen Avich. On top of that, she mysteriously loses her voice but regains a strange gift from her childhood – a sixth sense that runs in her family. And when a voice from the past keeps repeating “Take me home,” she discovers a mystery that she knows she must unlock to set herself free.
I have previously read Another of Daniela Sacerdoti’s stories ‘Watch over me‘ which is one of my favourite stories, I didn’t think she could get any better after that but she’s surpassed herself with this book.
The story totally moved me and I grew more and more attached to Inary, and Lesley her best friend. Their relationship was moving and I felt envious that she had someone that close that Lesley knew exactly what she was thinking and would always know the right thing to say. Anyone who has someone like that in their life is extremely lucky. The relationship with her brother was also quite moving, you could feel the tension between them the way it was written.
I was quite upset in the beginning because I thought it would end up being a sad story when in fact it was a beautiful, yet happy story. I love a book that puts you there, you can see (in your mind) exactly what the characters look like and you can picture the atmosphere and the landscape and Glen Avich sounded like a magical place.
Overall a totally magical experience reading this story and I shall be looking for my next encounter with another beautifully written book by Daniela Saderdoti.
