Another fabulous book delivered to my door. Eilidh Lawson is distraught, she's just suffered a miscarriage and is finally beginning to accept that despite years of fertility treatments, she's never going to be able to have the baby she longs for. She can't feel too badly towards her cheating husband and knows that however much she's suffered over the years, he can't have found it easy living with someone so desperate for something she seems unable to attain. She returns to the Highlands where she spent several happy years as a child to try and find a way to start healing from her loss.
Jamie is Eilidh's childhood friend. He's doing his best to look after his beloved daughter, Maisie and make up for his wife abandoning them and returning to London where her career as an artist is her first priority. He's a handsome target for the single women who live in his home town and when they see Eilidh spending time with his daughter, it doesn't occur to any of them that she might simply be helping him and not seeing him as someone to fall in love with.
Elizabeth, Jamie's mother has been dead for a couple of years, but that's not going to stop her from trying to mend both Eilidh and Jamie's hearts by pushing them together. However, it's easy to plan these things, but each of them soon discover that not much works out in the way any of them expect.
Watch Over Me is a poignant and beautifully crafted story. It's written from several points of view, not only Eilidh's and Jamie's but also his Elizabeth's and others. The chapters are short and it's pretty impossible to put it down.
