About the Book
Title: Watch Over Me
Author: Daniela Sacerdoti
Publication: Black & White Publishing (3 Nov 2011)/Amazon Kindle
Summary: Eilidh Lawson’s life has hit crisis point. Years of failed fertility treatments, a cheating husband and an oppressive family have pushed her to the limits. Desperate for relief, she seeks solace in the only place she’s ever felt at home – a small village in the Scottish Highlands. There she connects with people from her past and childhood.
What I Think
When Eilidh returns to her childhood village in Scotland you know that it is going to bring her the comfort that she needs to put her life back together. When she bumps into her childhood friend, Jamie McAnena, whose life is also not one hundred percent perfect, you suspect that they are going to get together.
There were too many, and most unnecessary, perspectives. It would have been better to remain more focused on the two main characters which would have allowed for more suspense in the narrative.
Overall the book was an enjoyable read.
