Kat and Mark move to an island off the Northern Irish coast for a new beginning. Far away from their frantic life in London, it’s the perfect place to bring up the family they’re longing to start.

The couple in Causeway Cottage are hiding something – and the truth can be deadly…

Travel Guide

Devon and the Causeway

Rathin Island

In my novel, the setting really is a character in its own right. I can’t imagine having set this novel anywhere else.

The novel opens with Kat’s first glimpse of the island from the ferry. She wonders if she has made a mistake in accepting to move here. She has never seen her new house – Causeway Cottage – or even set foot on the island itself. But she’s a keen photographer and dreams of making a living from her hobby. Rathlin will provide the perfect environment for this goal, with its abundance of wildlife and bird species as well as its stunning views.

Bruce’s cave and castle

There is an old ruin called Bruce’s Castle on Rathin Island. According to legend, Cthat Bruce and his chief warriors lie in an enchanted sleep in a cave of the rock on which stands the castle, and that one day they will rise up and unite the island to Scotland.
