Christmas in the sleepy Scottish fishing village of Gandiegow this year is a time for quilting, patching up broken hearts, and rekindling an old flame...?
After pulling herself out of a three-year fog of grief over the loss of her husband, Joe, Rachel is bringing their five-year-old daughter to see his hometown of Gandiegow and visit with his grandfather. But Rachel wasn't planning on running into Joe's cousin, the man who made her have second thoughts at the altar...?
Brodie has come home to help his grandfather's fishing business, but he'd prefer not to see Rachel. Although she did break his heart six years ago, the grip she has on him hasn't faltered. If they can stop butting heads long enough and learn to overcome the past, they may find new love in the new year...

"Narrator Kirsten Potter finds complementary voices for the characters of Gangiegow, Scotland, just as Rachel stitches together complementary tartan squares for the quilts she loves to make. She journeys to Scotland as a widow, bringing her daughter, Hannah, to meet her husband's family, not realizing her old flame, Brodie, has also returned to the village. Potter manages the intricate details of this contemporary small-town story with aplomb. Incorporating Scottish terminology and accents into her character-driven voicings, she differentiates Scots of various ages and temperaments. Overall, Potter ensures that each character is interesting and unique. Hannah's is the most memorable voice--the American 5-year-old immediately copies the Scottish brogue with adorable high-pitched pipings. Kirsten Potter's trademark low pitch and rounded enunciation bring warmth to the inimitable Scottish Highlands. C.A. Winner of AudioFile Earphones Award © AudioFile 2017, Portland, Maine"
