really liked it

This was a sweet book and a very fast read. It begins with Alec, who, fulfilling his ex-wife's dying request to have her ashes scattered on a remote Welsh mountain, hikes from Heathrow Airport to North Wales. There he meets Fiona Edwards, the spirited owner of a quaint farmhouse bed-and-breakfast, whose husband is reclusive and suffers from sheep dip poisoning. When bad weather keeps him from climbing the mountain, Alec is drawn into life on the farm, helping out with lambing season and falling into an easy friendship Fiona. Predictably, their friendship deepens, and they are drawn together in a passion neither ever thought possible. It is a story of love and loss, grief and hope,the challenge of doing what is right,and ultimately, a love story of two people who meet late in their lives.
