Reader Review'Wow! It is a very long time since I have enjoyed a book so much.

This gripped me from the start' ????? Reader Review------Escape with this feel-good and big-hearted debut novel from broadcaster Lorraine Kelly.

If you love Maeve Binchy, you'll love The Island Swimmer. Once the tide turns, you can't hold it back... When Evie's father falls desperately ill, she finally returns to the family home on Orkney and the wild landscape she left as a teenager, swearing never to return.

Not everyone is happy at her arrival, particularly her estranged sister Liv, their relationship broken after a childhood trauma.

As Evie clears out her father's neglected house to prepare it for sale, lonely Evie finds herself drawn to a group of cold-water swimmers led by her old friend Freya, who find calmness beneath the waves.

Together they help Evie face up to the mistakes in her past, unlocking a treasure of truths that will reverberate through the community, and shake her family to its core. ------'Gorgeous debut novel' Marian Keyes'Warm and wise...a Scottish Maeve Binchy' Veronica Henry'Like getting a warm hug on a freezing cold day' Jane Fallon'So warm and engaging.
