Baker & Taylor
Laid off in the wake of the dot-com industry collapse, Dan Porter finds himself increasingly estranged from his clothing designer wife and three teenage children and considers implementing drastic changes in his life.

McMillan Palgrave
Dan Porter had it all: a big house in suburban London, a beautiful wife, three children in private school, and a high-paying job. But then, it all collapsed like a house of cards. Now Dan stays home while his angry wife pursues a career, and his marriage falters. Returning to his old profession could mend the rift, but Dan needs to do something else, something more...

Then, Dan hears about a company for sale in northern Scotland, and the temptation is too great to resist. With his son Josh and two dogs in tow, he lands in a primitive cottage above a frigid loch. As he takes stock of his past, he discovers a community who desperately needs his help, a new chance for the future, a risk that requires a leap of faith...and an astonishing love.

A good story but it was spoiled for me with the sexual content and bad language. I have read many of his mother's books ( Rosamund Pilcher) and enjoyed them all and she never had one swear word or immoral parts in them ! Only read this book because of his mother' s work.

What a good book...I couldn't put it down!
Originally chose this book because he is the son of Rosamunde Pilcher & I am glad that I did.
