#SoaringScores #CatchUp
Set in the Scottish Highlands with boats, hills & fog, I think this book works as a catch up for #LeavingPort #MistyMountains & #TheSkyeBoatSong 😉Finished early in the week. The usual Colgan sweet & a nice revisit to the characters from The Bookshop on the Corner with a new MC helping out Nina. I wasn‘t sure of Zoe at first but she won me over & I adored the two young boys Hari & Patrick. Not my favorite but easy & good.

DebinHawaii I just realized the description must be for the British version as the MC & son‘s names are totally different. Odd. 🤔 (edited) 1mo
Cinfhen And very odd in regards to the publisher 1mo
CrowCAH Sounds like a quaint little book shop! 1mo

A Bonny lass in this novel; from my favorite Sherbrooke family series by Catherine Coulter!

@VioletCavalier and I are reading the Outlander books and watching the TV show; we‘re in season two!

I have no idea what the Isle of Skye is like, so it may be nothing like the fictional island of Mure featured in Jenny Colgan‘s series.

CrowCAH Good choice; a piece of land surrounded by water, they must be similar. 1mo

Sorry Cynthia and Cindy, I haven‘t been playing along this month, due to extreme work-related nonsense. Anyway, I‘ve had a few days off so feeling a bit more like me again and hope to get back to Litsying again.

From the tagged camping book, hopefully we‘ll get to go to Skye soon, along with many other wonderful Scottish islands.


TrishB Hope you‘ve had a lovely little break. I know all about those work related nonsenses- hope they get better!! 1mo
Cathythoughts Thinking of you Helen ... 👍🏻♥️ 1mo
squirrelbrain Thanks @TrishB @Cathythoughts - partly my own fault as I can‘t stop myself from working silly hours... well, I‘m sure I could if I tried! That‘s my challenge for next week then; to do less work... 😁 1mo
BarbaraBB I hope you‘ve had a great time. Skye has been on my bucketlist for ages too 😘 1mo
CrowCAH Looks beautiful! No worries, life happens; we understand. 😘 1mo

Beatriz Williams, Lauren Willig, and Karen White combine efforts to tell various stories in the past and present, all centered on the Lusitania. Such a wonderful story, and an early #LiteraryCrew #buddyread . #TheSkyeBoatSong #SoaringScores

CrowCAH The story of the Lusitania is quite interesting! Ship 🚢 1mo

Scochrane26 This is by far my favorite theme song to a show. I even have it on my phone. I like hallelujah on Victoria, too. (edited) 1mo
EadieB @Scochrane26 I agree! beautiful music! 1mo
Cinfhen Did not guess the Outlander connection 😜but spelling of “skye” was a good hint 1mo
CrowCAH Oh that is so cool how the opening song changes. I‘m only in season two and noticed that they were singing in French. 1mo

#SoaringScores This wasn‘t an easy prompt but the cover of tagged book gave me #TheSkyeBoatSong vibes. I found this story really whimsical and stirring. I loved it, even though many of my Litsy friends were not as enamored 🤨

CrowCAH I see the airborn boat! 👍🏻 1mo
Becker For the record, I was enamoured 😍 1mo
TracyReadsBooks I really liked this book and have recommended it to lots of friends. 1mo

#SoaringScores Day 18: #TheSkyeBoatSong reminded me of this picturebook reviewed by Fats: “Philip C. Stead came up with a fanciful tale of a boy who would stop at nothing to find his best friend. The illustrations are beautiful. Stead mixed collage and acrylics to bring Jonathan‘s adventure to life. With its sparse text and minimal illustrations, the story is perfect for the little ones.” Her review: https://wp.me/pDlzr-aKi

Cinfhen Beautiful 1mo
CrowCAH Love the graphics! 1mo
