Product Description

A Romance Set in the Highlands of Scotland with a Hint of the Paranormal!
"The dead of night, Jess, I wish they'd leave me alone."



Jessamin Wade's husband is dead - a death she feels wholly responsible for. As a way of coping with her grief, she keeps him 'alive' in her imagination - talking to him everyday, laughing with him, remembering the good times they had together. She thinks she will 'hear' him better if she goes somewhere quieter, away from the hustle and bustle of her hometown, Brighton. Her destination is Glenelk in the Highlands of Scotland, a region her grandfather hailed from and the subject of a much-loved painting from her childhood.


Arriving in the village late at night, it is a bleak and forbidding place. However, the house she is renting - Skye Croft - is warm and welcoming. Quickly she meets the locals. Her landlord, Fionnlagh Maccaillin, is an ex-army man with obvious and not so obvious injuries. Maggie, who runs the village shop, is also an enigma, startling her with her strange 'insights'. But it is Stan she instantly connects with. Maccaillin's grandfather and a frail, old man, he is grief-stricken from the recent loss of his beloved Beth.


All four are caught in the past. All four are unable to let go. Their lives entwining in mysterious ways, can they help each other to move on or will they always belong to the ghosts that haunt them?

This is an interesting book, all about love, loss, family, friendships and how different lives intertwine.

It had all the elements I enjoy in a book: it was well written so the story just flowed, the characters were well fleshed out and relatable, and the main character was a woman who had been through some tough times but was working her way through it.

I really liked Jessamin and I loved the relationship she had with Stan, as well as Maggie and Finn. I loved the paranormal aspects of it as well, it was completely believable to me (after all, there are things in the universe that just cant be explained, right?), and it added to the story to have those elements in the book.

Highly recommended read! This is the second Shani Struthers book I have read, and I will definitely be looking for more of her work to read.

With thanks to The Book Club and the author, for a free copy of this book in exchange for my honest review.

I am genuinely surprised by the other review here. I too have enjoyed all of Shani Struthers' books but Jessamine is one of my favourites. It is unlike any other 'love story' I have ever read. I've used inverted commas because although about love - and loss (and so much more...but I don't want to give too much away!) - this book defies genre definition. It is a poignant, haunting novel with - as always with this author's books - utterly believable characters and wonderful location descriptions- this time the Highlands of Scotland. It doesn't lack humour or warmth either, Ms Struthers has finely balanced all these elements to create one of her best books yet. Highly recommended.

Disappointed in this book - liked her first book but this was predictable and dull.

5.0 out of 5 stars A Ghost Story I Shall Remember 20 February 2015
By Jesse Giles Christiansen - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
This is a novel that is remarkable in its natural, unhurried flow, as well as a hauntingly beautiful charm that births from making its surroundings, along with its past, equally vital characters in the story. The only other time I have been this enchanted by such a tale was when I first watched the movie, Ghost Story (1981), which achieves a similar narrative tapestry.

Just like the simple, eerie painting that Struthers makes into a minor character, everything in this well-crafted novel is unveiled in a seamless, less-is-more, gentle ghosting of the reader. While all the characters are appropriately developed, Jessamine, Stan, and Finn are particularly well done. I can even still hear Finn's voice after the novel has ended. The personal character growth of Stan, but especially Jessamine and Finn, is impressive. The scenery adds such integral setting to the novel, and is so well described, I find myself desperately wanting to visit Scotland and its lochs. Furthermore, the main house of the novel ranks up there with top haunted house settings. Finally, I really enjoyed the way the ghosts in this book add chills without going too far. And the denouement is as beautiful as it is deft.

What a delightful novel. One I shall remember.

Yours in literature,
J.G.C.

Sometimes the past so envelopes us we can't see the future. Jessamine can't
The Scotland. setting made me want to travel there, if only I could. I loved the way I could feel the story, the setting, I felt as if I was there. When tears fall love prevails
5.0 out of 5 stars Really good book. 15 March 2017
By Kindle Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
Even though there were places in the book that I was afraid were going to be bad and I had to put the book aside until I got up enough courage to continue, I thought it was a really good book. It's been a couple of months since I finished the book but I still find myself thinking about the story. I've decided to read it again. It should be even better this time, since I won't have to worry about how the book turns out. I can just enjoy the book.
5.0 out of 5 stars The perfect book to read 1 December 2015
By Kindle Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
You know how you wish you could just run away to a perfect place and find peace with some adventure thrown in? Well, this book gives you all that and more. At the risk of sounding cliche, I laughed, I cried and at the end, felt that wonderful peacefulness we all yearn for! I couldn't put this book down . Thanks 's. Stretchers, you have gained a new fan.
5.0 out of 5 stars Beautiful love story 6 January 2017

Paranormal books are what I've always read by this author, but this is a love story and a beautiful one. Yes, there's tragedy, but so much love as well.
