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, Eilidh slowly begins to mend her broken heart but soon learns she is not the only one in the village struggling to recover from a painful past.
Jamie McAnena, Eilidh’s childhood friend, is trying to raise his daughter Maisie alone. After Maisie’s mother left to pursue a career in London and Jamie’s own mother, Elizabeth, passed away, he has resigned himself to being a family of two. But sometimes there is more to a story than meets the eye.
Despite their reluctance, curious circumstances keep bringing Jamie and Eilidh together. For even when it seems all is lost, help can come from the most surprising places.

Loved the story and loved narration
Would you listen to Watch Over Me again? Why?
I will definitely listen to the story again in a bit. The story was capturing and I have related to it. I loved Helen McAlpine narration and her ability to use different accents. She is brilliant and she is definitely part of the success of this audiobook.
What about Helen McAlpine’s performance did you like?
Brilliant. One of the best. I will certainly look for books read by Helen :-)

a bit more than just a love story
I found the author's thoughts on the afterlife interesting. It was predictable, but enjoyable non the less.
