Publisher's Summary

A classic tale of love, intrigue, adventure and the natural world, set on a beautiful isolated Hebridean island, by beloved novelist Mary Stewart.

When Rose Fenemore takes a desperately needed holiday to an isolated cottage on the Scottish island of Moila she doesn't expect much in the way of adventure - just a few quiet weeks of writing, walking and bird-watching. And then, late one night during a wild storm, two young men appear in her doorway, seeking shelter from the wind and rain. Neither man is quite who he claims, and the question of whom to trust will put Rose in grave peril....

The stormy petrels. The fragile, tiny black birds, nocturnal and solitary, that come ashore to nest but spend most of the lives flying close above the sea waves, come storm or shine.

©1991 Mary Stewart (P)2019 Hodder & Stoughton Limited

A Delightful Snapshot of the Mid Century Hebrides

A pleasant nature jaunt on one Scotland’s wild, rocky islands with a tiny bit of mystery thrown in. It’s a nice, relaxing story. Excellent narration!!

Good Stewart Read.

The story kept me engaged. As ever, Stewart's descriptions of the countryside are a beautiful travelogue. The story was well scripted and the mystery intriguing. A good read. I did not care for the narrator's voice which was a little too high-pitched for my ear, though the reading was competent.

One of my favourires

Initially distracted by the narrators voice which doesnt sound like a Cambridge don. The other accents were lovely as is the story itself. Very satusfying.
