Discover the spellbinding new novel from Sarah Maine, author of the Waterstones Scottish Book of the Year The House Between Tides

Scotland, 1940.
Wounded in action, Archie Maxwell has returned to his family estate of Rosslie. But between the uneasy company of his father’s beautiful new wife, and the memories that haunt his nights, he finds the house more of a battleground than a refuge.

Forty years later, Eva Bayne is a journalist looking for a story. Ever since the disappearance of Rosslie’s heir during the war, the Maxwells have lived under a shadow – and Eva is drawn to the mystery. Especially when the glimpse of an old photograph stirs up long-buried memories of her childhood in Newfoundland . . .

Could uncovering the truth heal the wounds of Eva’s past? And what will it cost for Rosslie to give up its secrets?

From the shores of western Scotland to the wild coast of Newfoundland, this is a spellbinding story of family secrets, love and redemption.

A compelling read. A beautifully woven tale that crosses the continents. Atmospheric and vivid, the characters will stay with me for a long time . . .'

'The Forgotten Shore is an utterly gripping dual time story about secrets, mistakes, redemption and possible forgiveness. It features a mysteriously missing heir and a girl who's always been a bit of an outsider, and an unlikely but forbidden friendship. The book covers the horrors of war, Highland clearances, forced removal of people living in remote coastal villages in Newfoundland and various environmental issues that engage the reader. It all blends into a fabulous tapestry that will keep you spellbound until the very last page - I absolutely loved it and couldn't put it down.'
