I Will Find You by Daniela Sacerdoti

By Pamelascott

A woman on the run. An island of secrets. A love to defy all odds...

I Will Find You by Daniela Sacerdoti

Two different women, divided by time, bound by fate...

After her mother dies, grief-stricken Cora discovers she has been left a cottage, a crumbling shelter on a mysterious Scottish island. The moment Cora arrives on the windswept isle of Seal, she falls under its spell and is drawn to brooding Innes, back on the island to confront his past.

As Cora begins to trace her mother's roots, she learns Gealach Cottage has a dark, turbulent history. Another young woman has sought refuge here, fleeing terrible danger, and waiting for her lover to return. What became of her? Only by unravelling a forgotten story of passion and courage can Cora understand what has pulled her to Seal...and led her to a man of many secrets.

I'm a sucker for duel narratives and non-linear storylines so I was already a fan of this book before it started. I'm Scottish, born and bred so the fact the book is set on a Scottish island is another plus for me. This book is off to a great start before I've even turned the page. I really enjoyed this book. I liked the way the book is structured, moving effortlessly between the dark history of the cottage and the present when Cora is searching for answers hoping to find out how her mother inherited the cottage and what her secrets were. The book gets pretty dark at times especially as the dark and turbulent past of the cottage starts to seep into the present. I read the last 100 or so pages in one setting as the book hurtled towards the end and I couldn't tear my eyes away. I would definitely read more of the author.
