Is there really such a thing as a second shot at true love?

After three wonderful years of marriage, librarian Juliette Fairhurst's heart is shattered when her husband, Laurie, is taken from her much too soon.

Devastated, Juliette decides to take a sabbatical and reconnect with her mother's birthplace, the village of Glentorrin on the picturesque Isle of Skye.

Welcomed by most of the villagers, Juliette throws herself into an idyllic community life, taking on the role of temporary summer guardian at The Lifeboat House Museum.

During her time on the island, Juliette clashes with brooding single dad and artist, Reid Mackinnon and is befriended by his son Evin and dog Chewie.

It's clear that divorced Reid is struggling and scarred by his own painful experiences.

Can these two lost souls find a lifeline to rescue each other?

Or will their pasts scupper their second chance at real happiness?
