Colleen arrives in Edinburgh, eager to pursue her dream of a life in medicine, despite her homesickness. She writes to her sister of the sweeping, gothic charms of Edinburgh, and the peculiar—and strangely familiar—teacher’s aide who dislikes her from day one.
Noah can’t believe the sister of his childhood tormentor has followed him across the world.
The two find themselves alone on campus over the holidays. On a whim, Noah proposes a getaway for the Christmas weekend, and Colleen accepts, both wondering at how easily they’ve thrown aside their judgment in exchange for a reprieve from their loneliness.
Nothing will be the same after their worlds collide in the Scottish Highlands.
