The Island Home – Libby Page


Description: Lorna’s world is small but safe. 

She loves her daughter, and the two of them is all that matters. But after nearly twenty years, she and Ella are suddenly leaving London for the Isle of Kip, the tiny remote Scottish island where Lorna grew up. 

Alice’s world is tiny but full.

She loves the community on Kip, her yoga classes drawing women across the tiny island together. Now Lorna’s arrival might help their family finally mend itself – even if forgiveness means returning to the past…

So with two decades, hundreds of miles and a lifetime’s worth of secrets between Lorna and the island, can coming home mean starting again?

Why We Like It

We have loved Libby’s previous books and the wonderful way that she observes relationships. The Island Home is another outstanding book,  in every situation that Libby describes there is a sense of optimism; that if circumstances change, if someone takes a risk, if people come together, hope will overcome the darkest of times.

With breathtaking descriptions of The Isle of Kip, Libby takes us away to a place so realistic that you can see it, feel the sense of island community and long to swim in the sea.

Tender, moving and uplifting, this beautiful book is another triumph for Libby! Highly Recommended!
